Great head at a great value

By Bassed in SD

from San Diego, Ca

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

I bought this head a couple of weeks ago at the Guitar Center in Mira Mesa, California, only because waiting for the shipping would kill me. I played the head everytime I went to guitar center on the GK 115SBX head so I just decided to buy them both, let me tell you I couldn't be happier. The range is fantastic and it makes a great combo with my Active Fender Jazz Deluxe. I continually find new tones to explore, and I love bi-amp, you can hear that the quality of the horn doesn't suffer when you turn up. It's a shame this scale doesn't go to ten because this is a great deal. Also, the head is not as heavy as most I tried out (ampegs and such) but it still has some weight to it, and it feels exceptionally sturdy. I'm not afraid of damaging too much when packing for shows. Feel free to look around for more heads, the great price and sheer beauty of this head's tone will call you back.

Driving Power and Excellent Features!

By kivikasvot

from S.L.C., UT

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

If you are looking for a head that will have more then enough power to get you through any gig, LOOK NO FURTHER. I actively shopped around for many months playing everything I could get my hands on. I found a head that would take my sound to the next level for the right price. Some of the features that attracted me to this head were; speakon outputs (fuller frequency retention), 4/5-string mode, XLR balanced output to a main system, bi-amp control for tweeter and woofer, and the contour and presence adjustment when you want to stand out. Don't forget the unique G-K "growl" you can boost into your sound. Bring some G-K cabs along and shake any venue. You won't find anything like this with any other brand (just ask Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers)!

SMALL PRICE FOR GREAT HEAD!

By Rinos88

from Morton, Illinois

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

This amp packs all of the power you'll probably ever need. I've been an Ampeg fan for years, took an Eden endorsement for a while, but this head has completely won me over to GK. It is EXTREMELY loud! The tone punches like a battering ram and if coupled to one of the GK Neo cabs, will annihilate both of your guitarists if they get too loud. This is the last head I'll ever need to buy. Very warm and tight sounding. Only gripe is that the effects loop is on the front instead of the back.

Ampeg Killer

By Sylvester" Snap" Andrews

from New Orleans, la.

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

I use to play only Ampeg equipment. Now after playing a GK 1001 RB head with two 1-12 cabs. I'm convinced that the GK is priced better than the SVT-4 with more watts. I love the quick response the 1-12 cabs give. The deliver the cleanest highs and stage shaking lows. I play with four different bands in New Orleans. They all love my tones I get from my GK rig. I play old school, smooth jazz,gospel,and some rock. I have opened shows for Earth,Wind & Fire, Peabo Bryson , played with Ronnie Laws, Lionel Hampton among countless others.You have to keep a good edge in a town full of good basss players. GK is keeping me on top. Very satisfied.

Gallien Krueger 1001 RB II

By Jon Manning

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

I've been playing bass for about 15 years and been through many rigs ( about 6 or 7 ). This head is by far the best bang for your buck. The high power and percise sound are incredible. You will find that this head is unmatched, and in a world of it's own! With it's more than reasonable price and "high end sound," your tone will definatly be heard and admired! Two Thumbs Up!

GK 1001rb 2 Head Best Amp for Hard Rock

By John R

from New York CIty

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

Bought this amp and a 410sbx cab running in Bi-amp mode. Best combination of crisp, clean raw power and metallic gritty punch I have played (played through ampeg and aguilar amps and cabs at simliar prices ranges). Highly suggest one plays through this setup in bi-amp mode before making any other purchase. My boy Justin from tool uses this stuff (2001rb) and there is a reason!!!

Finally, I found THE AMP!!

By Zachary

from Jenison

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

I had tried a mark bass prior to this but that wasn't satisfying my ears really. So I went to GC and returned it. Played around on a few other amps, found my self jammin' on the GK through a neo 410. Simple eq, love the biamp mode and the boost option. The contour and presence is also great. THis amp is not hard to dial in tones. Its has a quiet fan too. My other amp sounded like a mini jet was built inside lol. If you want the growl im you tone(which is tamable btw) get this amp.

Phenomenal

By Joey Fowler

from Elberta Alabama

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

I just bought this amp head with the Neo 410 and Neo 115 cabs, and let me tell you all of this gear is way above par. I was expecting good but when i got it home and got it all hooked up, i was is awe within seconds of hearing this beauty for the first time. I am sold on GK gear all of my bass amplification systems and speaker systems will be GK from now on. I am begging you try GK out before making any decisions, I am now convinced you will be a GK fan too!!

Incredible Power

By Darius Hawthorne

from Allen Texas

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

This little monster is awesome. I have been playing for a church for almost 30 years now and I have used many amps including the beloved Ampeg and this baby is very nice. I just got it so I am still getting used to it, but so far this baby is a beast and I cannot wait to get to know it a little bit better.

power 2 spare

By EP

from baltimore,md

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 1001RB-II 700/50W Biamp Bass Head:

it took me a while to get to this review but there was a lot of trial and error. ampeg cabs, swr, hartke, peavay and something was missing. this was confusing because my hartke ha3500 sounded great thru ampeg and swr cabs. after fustrated gigs and practices i've seen the light. GK head, GK cabs. so no more settling for 'great' deals on used ampegs or swr and i dont have eden money. i've never heard anything thru my fingers like this. the 1001 rb was made to be bi-amped. i know some of you are saying 'da' but us bargin shoppers have to learn the hard way. anyway i finally dropped my 1001 rb atop a gk 115 neo, went bi-amp mode and as ray lewis would say 'wow' so i took my swr cabs and my old peavey 215 and said bye-bye and hello gk410 neo. i'm in bassplayer heaven. BTW for bassist there nothing more fulfilling than contempory gospel and hard quartet. you tone, definition, big bottom for slappin poppin fingerin runnin and even some tappin. the GK 1001 RB with almost any GK cab puts it down lastly if your on a budget try one of these with a 410 goldline you'll be surprised. there have been some good deals on these used as the previous owners give up on these. make there lost your gain. also 'sorry' i'm playing a hohner b bass 6 string, ibanez sr305 and squire vibe 70's delux tuned in d and oh how sweet a 4 string it is. grace and peace to all!
