    I finally unloaded my Genz 6x10, and went right to Guitar Center to order a GK 410RBH cabinet, which I was told they were blowing them out for $399. Well....they're all spoken for, so I bummed out for a minute. I started looking at some other cabinet choices, and then gave an older GK 410/114RBS rig a try. I was pretty impressed, and was told I could get the 410 for $275 out the door. I was bummed by no tweeter, and no clue how many ohms or how much power. So I walked around alittle more and found an Ampeg Portabass 110, that they were clearing out for $99. I lifted it and was impressed by the weight. I plugged it in, and it was sold. I also ordered a GK 115RBH for $300 in place until I can find the 410RBH. So I walked out of GC with two cabs, one in hand, and one on the way. I never thought the day would come when I would buy an Ampeg.

    There wasn't anything about the cab I didn't like, except maybe weight. It sounded great, and had great handling. I just decided to switch to GK and I wanted a biampable cabinet.

    "Everytime you play more than 4 strings, Jaco kills a kitten." That's how it's supposed to go.
