    Hi Everyone,
    I'm a new member, (Pete). I've just sold an Ampeg rig because of storage and portability issues. I've kept the 'Classic' 1x15 cab.
    I am trying to decide between a GK 1001RB and an SWR Super Redhead.
    Any views or opininionsson this?

    The SWR Super Redhead is a pretty BAD ASS combo.

    The 1001RB / 210 combo is a better choice in my opinion. You will be happier with the 1001RB, even though i love the Redhead.
  3. They are both good combos. I tried both, and the SWR had the tone that I preferred. They were similar in volume. They were the same price, as the SWR was on sale.:) Thus I bought the SWR, but I did seriously consider the GK. Either would be good, I guess it would depend which one you think sounds better, and perhaps there are feature differences between them that would help you decide as well.

    The SWR Super Redhead is arguably the best bass combo made. The only viable alternative is the Eden Metro. But do what you want.
