: I have been following the hype about the ACoustic Image Contra and I am sure like a lot of you after the holy grail of URB sounds you are intrigued. I presently use a GK mb150 which is a great little amp but loud venues still cause problems with feedback and integrity of sound. How much, if at all, is the Acoustic image contra better than the GK.
: Also I use my GK for electric gigs (pit work and the occassional small gig.)
: Is the sound of the Contra more powerful than that of the GK when using electic bass?
My experience is that it can do everything the GK can and more. I've never had any problem with the low B on my active pickup equipped bass guitar, and the sound is much more hi-fi than the GK (less colored). I used to use the GK you have when I was in college, and it was pretty versatile, but never sounded that great with the doublebass. Add another speaker to the AI and it will be MUCH louder than the GK. Even with one speaker, volume is pretty comparable, and I don't think the AI gets as "honky" when pushed as the GK.
