    They sound real nice.

    GK sounds too clinical for my taste.

    Check the SWR site you may be able to download it's owners manual. Go play a 350 or 500 the sm-400 sounds better then the 350. Hey you guys this is subjective buy what your ears tell you. Love that music and play so well that you speak through any equipment and find the rig that doesn't limit but enhances that expression.

    Bought one in '87 and still using it today. Was looking for a sound back then. Tried it out and fell in love with it. Great tone. Reliable. It will get hot on you though.
