matthieu.marcus.bros's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" head transistor extra"

Gallien Krueger 1001RB-II
top gear single transistor
all the specifics on the net, be it on the advice of marbasse, just below ^ ^
there's everything you need in connectors, here meets the beast dad ^ ^


top use simple answers here now & unrestrained ^ ^
attention to the bass panel / lid / treble whose order is reversed compared to what we usually see, except here, no bizarretés ^ ^

we get the sound that seeks 5min, it's simple & cruelly efficient, why be bothered ^ ^!??


versatile amp to perfection, I play it as much for the funk / rock than prog rock rock'n'roll that muscular without any worries

it's incredible efficiency that tite dirt ^ ^
after spending many amps (including those of my friends), it remains the simplest & effective than I had
value / price to all other KO!!


I lost a lot of time testing amp head while the answer was this, without hesitation
except a lamp head, I do not want other heads: this one is THE head need

There are still a lot of controls that can be disconcerting at first because the combinations are multiple ... It will satisfy the technogourous. For the lazy like me, the ideal is to start from a position "while at noon" and then tweaking (I still often like that and it does it well).
The sound is very powerful (have speakers who cash really the advertised power: we arrive at 1476 W peak!). It can be bright or bold, a little way Gayon lamps with the boost knob ... Versatile


All styles, without exception
I play with music man stingray 5 and 4 string, 5 string Vigier passion, washburn 6 string fretless ... no effect. All sounds are possible but remember that it is designed to play hard, we must have clear sounds to avoid bogging down the band's sound ... A low volume or recording, you can push the "boost" to restore to all balls.


I played on a 700RB for years I spent in 1001 to save power. Otherwise, the same product and I remain faithful ... Power, versatility, reliability and compactness, of course comes at a price but the dollar is low, it's time to enjoy it.
One regret: not having the 2-channel system (light / full) series of economic brand (backline)

A little confusing at first, EQ treble and bass left to right, is very effective. We must follow the manual says to first 12h the boost function and refine the next sound you want then. This feature is part of the grain of this amp, adding a certain amount of "growl" sound. It takes full advantage of this feature with the bi-amping a speaker Gallien-Krueger. The tweeter is so "clean", unaffected by the slight saturation brought about by the "boost".


Precise, warm, sharp as a razor, and with character, this is the sound of this amp. All watts of record are waiting for you! bi-amp can make the most of the grain by measuring the tweeter amp in my cabinet Gallien NEO 212-II. My instrument is passive, so I set the sound to the amp and everything is there. One might want a parametric mids, but then I quibble!


It is an excellent amp and original design, with a standard diet, and not too heavy (10kg). It is very versatile, powerful than enough to cover most situations of play Top! To get a little better (and still ...), you must make me 2 times more expensive.

Transistor amp but for details #


The manual is very clear, but frankly I think I would use it is never simple and easy to use. For the right sound is connected and listen.


The sound is very well made clear sound is impressive, there are more easily produced by the bass notes with an equivalent volume (between I compared my old and new amp) it's clean or dirty desire to desire to by pushing the volume knob a bit (in fact it gain). I played on a speaker Ampeg 410HE Made in USA with a musicman stingray, an Ibanez acoustic / electric bass and jazz unbranded found in an attic and it sounds, I have not tested dual-mode amplifier to an enclosure but I GK do not see how you can get better sound amplification by the bi! Try it!. Even my guitar is the love that!


I use it for 3 months and there is nothing wrong with the sound I wanted and that I needed, I play in 2 groups, one of folk rock and other styles QOTSA! I tried a lot of amp before taking this one and if you want a similar quality in another brand it is necessary to double the price!
