I needed a portable and rugged system that would accommodate my little band when we play away from home. I found it! Paired with Yamaha 15in speakers on stands and some decent mics (venerable Shure 58's) this thing has exceeded my expectations. We use it in small club settings as well as my outdoor carport area for parties. Some cheap Kustom monitors provide a good mix. We are a four piece band with the drummer running his Roland Electronic kit through the Gigrac and the bass player using a seperate amp....although he could run through the Gig without a problem. Sometimes we mic his amp and filter it through the Gig. Plenty of inputs...we even have a CD player plugged in for break time. When I mentioned rugged...it comes in a case that looks like something from an old war movie. There is storage inside the case for some cables, etc. It has been dropped on occasion (not recommended) with no consequences to date. Six months and some 40 or 50 gigs later, I am happy with this purchase. If you live in the Nashville area, go to Guitar Center and ask for Gary. He'll hook you up!

The speaker resistance is critical to get maximum "punch" from this amp.
I sold mine.
The coolin fans are so very noisy, but, these fans are very important to keep the output trannies & the weird power switching (110 volts to feed the amp) system, cool (or it shuts down)-(almost instantly). Put this amp down a little heavy & the cooling fans are stopped by all the meatal case around them (very close for some reason). Once I realise all this, I was happy with the amp. A decent pair of speakers (at 4ohms per speaker box) made this amp a giant slayer.
I got sick of strippin it to free the fans, so sold it with all the warnings.
EQ is almost perfect with all knbs sraight up, but I must state again the seakers must be 4 ohms per side (2 x 8ohms in parallel each side).
Pretty good quality with impressive face plate, great feeling knobs with smooth resistance feeling.. Light weight, plenty impressive sound with good speakers (4ohms per side).
Big plastic box slides around too much, left the rubber mat somewhere, but its almost waterproof (if the right way up in the rain).
Ive had more reliable 1000 watters, but not many so very portable..

Glad we bought it!

Comments about Soundcraft GigRac 1000st Powered Mixer:

Just want to say that we purchased this for Worship nights at our church and it has been great. We have had it for over 3 years now and it still works great. Very easy to use very portable and not to heave or bulky to move around. We are looking with something with more channels now but this is still use today. You can't go wrong with the price either. Very happy and glad we bought this.

No problems

By The Artist Known as Joseppi

from Oakhurst CA

Comments about Soundcraft GigRac 1000st Powered Mixer:

I've been using this for almost two years and thus far have had no problems, (light weight & easy to set up) altho' I haven't used it extensively or pushed it very hard. I'm currently using it for my acoustic band and mic'ing everything including upright bass-very clear transient response and punchy bottom-end. At first I was concerned about it not being loud enough, then I replaced my Peavey 16 ohm speakers with JBL JRX115's and WOW what a difference. I've also used it as a power amp with my 16-ch mixer for an outdoor large venue - very clean and loud and had no issues from running it for 5 or 6 hours continuously. The cooling fan is loud in a small quiet setting like a church but inconsequential for club use. I'm surprised to have read some very unfavorable reviews here but realize its the nature of the beast with Chinese-made gear...I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. Based on other's negative experiences, I would neither recommend nor discourage anyone from buying it. Based on my own experience, I'm very pleased.

excellent just love it

By Fred

from Houston TX

Comments about Soundcraft GigRac 1000st Powered Mixer:

I bought this device because I was tired of renting each time I was throwing a party. I matched it up to 2 Peavey PR 15. the sound quality is just great, and extremly powerfull. as it was laking some bass i bought a Peavey subwoffer PV 118. I use the main output in mono for the speaker and the monitor output for the subwoofer. the sound is cristal clear and the bass very powerfull. I may consider buying a dedicated amp for the subwoffer, to get back to stereo on my speaker. the case looks really robust, the only downside is the should have either go with a dark panel or put a small front light, not a big deal in light of the global quality.

Comments about Soundcraft GigRac 1000st Powered Mixer:

Since my last review, Souncraft has contacted me, assuring me they are working on the Chinese issues. They also offered to make amends of the situation. The rep was very courteous and understanding. I just want to give credit where credit is due. Meanwhile, maybe purchase the 3 year warranty if you buy this product.

Have 3...all have failed

By Russhulme

from Oklahoma and Belize

Comments about Soundcraft GigRac 1000st Powered Mixer:

I bought 3 of the units because of Soundcrafts reputation and great experience with their consoles. I've had 3 units fail, all different problems. Way too costly to repair. These units are manufactured in China and will go to my bone yard with a bunch of other Chinese made junk. I am done with Soundcraft.....period....surprised someone hasn't started a class action law suit.....maybe I will.

Flawed & under powered

By Jon

from MN

Comments about Soundcraft GigRac 1000st Powered Mixer:

I bought one of these a few years ago for its compactness, power, simplicity, tank like casing and cover and shoulder strap portability. I was disappointed from the very beginning at how under powered it seemed to be next to my Yamaha 8 channel power mixer. The Yamaha blew it out of the water for head room and was equipped with lower powered amps. Recently the master volume pot has been screwing up, spiking the LEDs into the red zone with random noise. Turns out that pot is shot. No matter what that's due to (could've been bumped or something but I'm not sure), it's going to cost me over $100 in labor to replace a $15 part due to its design which in my opinion is flawed to the point where I don't recommend it or plan on buying another. It's a fantastic design in some ways, but this makes it a cheap piece of junk.

Don't Buy it!

By Todd-JP4Vx

from Evans Colorado

Comments about Soundcraft GigRac 1000st Powered Mixer:

I play in a three man rock band. I bought this unit for solos and duals to use in small settings. When I first set it up it would over load and shut down right away. I tore it apart and found the fan motor covererd i orange hard plastice glue. I removed all the large chunks and put it back together.Worked great was happy with it. Used it for a gig at a gig worked great.I set it up three weeks later to play at a hotel. Will not work. The Left amp is overloaded by just turning it on. TOOOOO much money for one gig. I will never buy any then from soundcraft again. They have low Quality Control.Final word...DON'T BUY IT!

3rd 1000st in shop,stranded twice no pay DON'T BUY

By dissapointed and stranded not once buy twice

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about Soundcraft GigRac 1000st Powered Mixer:

I bought one of these to gig with for karaoke. I figured hey:what a lightweight powerful easy to transport sturdy looking PA. AND its a Soundcraft to boot. First off let me explain, I ran 2 Peavey PR15's which I checked with a multimeter that run at 7.2 and 7.44 Ohms respectively. So, speakers are in check and so are the cables. as well as the IEC power cable providing good power at 114 VAC.Utter fail. The first one worked well for around 7 months, 3 nights a week, 4 hours a night. Then while playing a gig, all of the sudden, the entire amp shut down. It was in a failsafe protect mode, and the clip light was lit up and would put out a TINY and I mean TINY reproduction of sound when both the channel and the main volume were both turned all the way up. So, I took it back and got another one.Second one worked fine for around 2 months, and then after gigging with no problems on Friday and Saturday night, a friend called to ask me if I could cover her gig for her. No problem, or so I thought. I went in, set everything up, turned everything on, and what happened but absolutely nothing. This amp it seems was in protect mode as well. Sooooo... I took it back yet a 2nd time. Got a new amp. Again, while out playing a gig the amp failed. This time, I took it into a reputable shop since I had no money to buy a brand new one. Lets hope they fix it. I will probably sell, and buy something else as soon as its in working order.The second time it failed, I scrimped and saved and bought what I considered to be a less desirable product, the Behringer PMP3000. I have to say, it blows the GigRac out of the water, in terms of headroom, and effects, and number of channels, and features, and clarity. The only reason I have the GigRac in the shop is for purely a backup amp, should I be DJing a wedding and need it in dire circumstance. If you google "Gigrac 1000st major problems blown" theres an electronics forum with all the information on what was/is wrong with it. Support I will say from Harmon International has been PHENOMENAL!
