This amp is amazing. Its tonal qualaties are second to non for an amp in this class (and a few more expensive options as well). You always know that your going to get a great tone with plenty of adjustment from Gallien Krueger but this little beauty exceeded all my expectations. As for the weight. GK you've saved my back.
If you buy this baby get it up on an adjustable tilting stand (Quicklock or Jammaster) and you'll be amazed at what it does for your sound.
Love it GK
Sadly, last night, during our third set at a gig, the amp started cutting out. Classic rock, moderate volumes... nothing abusive. First I blamed my wireless setup and changed the battery. Then I connected direct. Then I blamed my bass and switched to my back-up. Continued to cut in and out until it finally developed a very loud buzz that sounds like a broken speaker cone.
I guess at $27 a month it wasn't too bad but I truly expected it to last longer. I will be taking it in for repair but I will also start hauling a back-up amp to shows.
This amp provides a few options which can help me get further into the varied songs we play. At times, I'll need to bring in a deep warm organ-y feel for somber pieces. With a click of a button, the signature G-K growl can bring more chomp to keep things moving. Even popping and slapping has definition while still being controlled and clean.
Volume-wise I never go for want. This workhorse can provide the same oomph in a small practice room just as it can in the huge hall. Though all other instruments run through the room's sound system, my bass stands by itself and easily holds its own without pushing it even to half.
As a ~35lb block, this amp is light when compared to its traditionally magnetized brotheren. I've read that neo-cabs miss some of the bottom-end heft. But when a guest bassist joined us for a few weeks, he never knew the G-K was neodymium driven. This amp balances portability with great sound. If neo is how that's done, I'll stick with it because I can leave the dolly at home without incurring a backache.
Note: The horn in this amp emits a high pitched buzz which is distracting. I leave it off and still great sound.
There is no way you can go wrong purchasing this combo amp. It lacks nothing and the rugged construction is a pretty clear indicator that this thing will outlive me.

I found this little gem at G.C. here in Las Vegas. It was used and I had never seen or heard this combo before. I took a Bass off the wall and started jammin' away through it. Read morePublished on September 11, 2013 by in_your_groove

Who's idea was it to put the XLR out where it is?? The 3 prongs should be turned around. It's next to impossible to press the button that unplugs the jack. Read morePublished on April 19, 2011 by paulS
