: I am looking into buying a GK 400RB head to matchnup with a 12 inch Bag End cabinet. Is GK reliable? I hear that the sound is very good. The amp is only 15 lbs. and has shping and contour levels. I also use a Fishman Parametric EQ.
: I am also cosidering a Clarus amp, but fear that it doesn't have enough wattage for the Bag End or other cabinets I have with 2 tens in them.
: Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am doublebassist in jazz.
On the reliability question, I've owned a GK 400RB (in a rack case) for over 10 years, and have never had a single problem with it. I use it mostly for electric bass with an Eden 2X10 cab. It has many road miles. When I use it for my double bass, I'm not quite as happy with the sound. Although I'm sure there are many other causes for that! It is kind of a pain to cart around a rack mounted head and cabinet all the time for quiet jazz shows. I think the amp gives a very true representation of the instrument sound.
