GRBass – Pure Sound
I want two of them!!!
Reads a lot like spam or phishing...
Definitely not clicking that link.
It’s legit. Should be in Amps and Cabs though…
They were at NAMM. @wintremute has one of the previous models
I cant believe how light weight they are. Wonder how they sound. Plus they have a Elf type head thsts 350 watts!! Very curious.
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.
GR Bass Gear Questions?
Here's a thread where they're being discussed. I'm a big fan.
GR Bass Aerotech Cabs
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.
They look pretty sweet:
GR Bass, lightweight head cabs, cabinets, 210, 410 bass guitar :: Basses and Guitars, UK for sale, UK, on offer EU Accessories at Bass Direct: warwick, usa amplifier, lightweight, class D, Birmingham, Manchester, London
They've been a TB Sponsor or whatever for quite awhile.
GR Bass Amplification
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.
crazy ! How do they sound ?
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.
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.
Club Bass, Toronto, carry the line. The 12” cab is listed at $1,499.00 (CDN).
... and carbon fibre construction!
