    hey everyone. this is my first day here at talkbass.com...

    i'm having a slight problem...

    i have 2 Gallien Krueger 15" backline cabs, and no amp head...

    i was wondering what kind of head to buy (possibly GK)

    they're 8 ohm cabs... that handle 200W each

    any suggestions?

    thanks,
    Michael

    For $600 you can get a killer rackmount sansamp pre or (my present choice) a Behringer Bass V-amp Pro and a QSC or Behringer poweramp and have a killer pro rig!

    You just screw them into a 4U portable rack case and you be stylin'!
     
  6. Well, you honestly need to test them out at guitar center or something..

    A Gallien Krueger 400RBIV, 700RB Mark 2 or 800RB. Any of these would work really well.
     
  9. How 'bout you go to the two stores just to try stuff out. They won't force you to buy something if turn the power on and play through it. If you find something you like, go order what you tried out on the internet (even ebay) at a lower price. Trust me, best of both worlds. You try the stuff out at internet prices
