: 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?
I used the same G-K for years. The AI tops it, easily. After you play thru an AI, you'll realize how much the G-K makes a double bass sound like a bass guitar. I can't answer you re max volume. I don't play those gigs. I would expect an AI cabinet to give you all the extra sound you'd want. Keep in mind the AI is a heavier load to carry in.
