    These days I’m all about saving weight, which is funny because I purchased years ago 4 eminence 10” kappa pro speakers and the magnets are almost as large as the speak ( and talk about heavy )! I put them in an svt 4 @10” + 1 15”, weighed around 200 lbs. Even with wheels it was ridiculous !

    The cabs and whichever amp was in use the various times I walked by their booth sounded good, but NAMM is often a very tough place to judge that.

    I've played through some of their gear at The Bass Shop here in Seattle, which is a dealer. I've also heard a few others trying them out while I've been there. I like them, but haven't had the time to really get to know them. One thing I do know though: Chad (Bass Shop owner) wouldn't be a dealer if it wasn't high quality gear.

    GRBass is more than legit. A few months back I heard a player at a show going through a GR rig consisting of a 212 and a 350W head and the master was at a little under 11 o'clock. And their drummer was loud! More than the loudness, the sound was very present, dynamic and powerful, and it sounded unrestrained, like it was coming from a lot larger rig. I was very impressed and am seriously gassing for that same rig now.

    Papuzzo's description matches how I feel about my cabinet. (GR 208) My little cabinet not only keeps up with my drummer, it does so while sounding big, open and responsive. (Well, not at the moment, so "kept up"?)

    I guess I'm a sucker for 8" speakers because I've spent $$ going through previous offerings - Schroeder, MAS and Trace, and I like the GR 208 the best. I'd be very curious to try the new Aerotech 212.

    So yes, OP, I've heard of them. :D

    Word on the streets here in Italy is that they are pretty neutral sounding amps and cabs. The idea behind GRBass seems to be "the sound of my bass, only louder." IOW, it tries to get as close to the "direct" sound as possible. Of course that is impossible, but that is the goal. I am interested in the One 350 head because it also includes a switch to completely bypass the entire EQ section, rendering it pretty much a power amp. At that point you have a really clean slate with which to use various preamps or multieffects with amp sims, and not have to worry about EQing out the baked in sound of the rig. Cool stuff! Combine that with a fairly neutral sounding cab that has some serious balls behind it and it becomes a very versatile rig.
