So of course, the stimmy hit. Couldn’t figure out what to do with it until I realized an Amp Head upgrade is long overdue. (Questions at the bottom if too long to read) I currently use an Ibanez SR605 and a GK NEO 412 cab powered by a Behringer BX4500h amp head. The Behringer was my first amp, supposed to upgrade after a few years but then got married and yadda yadda yadda There is nothing really *wrong with the Behringer, I can get a nice tone out of it, but the new band I’m playing with now is doing mostly outdoor gigs (Covid) with minimal PA support for the bass. I can cut through fine, but I find myself clipping - often times cutting bass and adding mids to get more headroom, but still close to clipping or hitting the rails. I always have both the “deep” and “bright” buttons engaged. I guess I like a “scooped” tone with just enough mids to cut through. I started looking for a used GK 700rb-II online and found that the price used is very close to the 1001rb-II nowadays. A couple questions here: 1. The Behringer is rated at 450w, while the 700rb is 480w. Will the 700 really give me more headroom or would it be about the same-ish? My concern is settling for the 700 but being in the same boat and ending up back in the market for a 1001rb. 2. My budget for the GKs are 400-500 since I like those, but is there maybe a different amp that goes for less used that I’m overlooking? The 1001rb-II has been my dream amp for years, but not sure if maybe it’s too much amp for my situation and current venue size. Thanks everyone!
