  • Gallien-Krueger Backline 112

    Gallien Krueger Backline 112Published on 03/10/07 at 15:00
    I'm 38, and started playing bass and guitar at 15 years old. I've owned quite a bit of gear over the years and have played in 3 different bands. I'm currently looking for a band needing a bass player. Into Buck Cherry, Metallica, AC/DC, etc.

    Looking for a practice amp, I went to my local Guitar Center and foud the Backline 112 to sound great and was loud enough for personal practice. And at $290.00, it fit my budget well.

    Great looks, easy to transport, loud enough to hear with my music turned up, total control over an awesome sound.

    Speaker and cabinet cannot handle the lower registers of a 5 string well at all, and even though its 100 watts it could never sit beside a drum kit......

    Great looks, easy to transport, loud enough to hear with my music turned up, total control over an awesome sound.

    Speaker and cabinet cannot handle the lower registers of a 5 string well at all, and even though its 100 watts it could never sit beside a drum kit and try to play rock music. Also, my particular amp shuts down while I,m playing! Sometimes I can't even get the amp to turn on! The amp is only a year old.

    Good amp, quality hardware and controls, poor speaker quality though.

    The amp is perfect for a practice amp. Don't think you'll be getting anything else. It might be ok for a jazz band or recording, but nothing with any volume. Excelent tone for whatever you play! Seriously needs a quality speaker upgrade to handle deep tones and lower registers, but that would defeat its budget price.

    Bought it at Guitar Center in Concord, CA for $350, bargained to about $300. i had a 40 watt amp and needed at least 100.

    Same price as say Crate, but 4 times as good. the sound is awesome, and it doesn't wig out or distort until maybe 90 watts, which is very impressive. GK is top of the line. the amp is smaller than most, so its much easier to carry. 12" speaker, but don't be fooled...it shakes. plus it's got distortion switch, and good tone control.

    12" speaker is a little small, but it pumps out great sound. size don't matter.

    pretty good. it tilts back for better sound projection. caged front is tight, but its fragile

    i'm hot, the amp is hot, trust me, go buy one

    I purchased this unit from Guitar Center in Atlanta, GA. I paid just under $300. I purchased it after a recomendation from the sales rep Richard Gibson (so far everything he reccomends is all he says it is). It it the best sounding bass combo I have found from Ampeg to Peavey.

    It is light weight and has a small foot print. I like the contour feature which drops the mid and boost the high & Lows. It delivers a supreme tone for only having a 12" speaker. The rockback design allowes me to use it as a monitor when playing bigger venue, just use the line out to the house PA.

    I wish it has a direct line out and came with a foot switch to switch between the drive and clean channel.

    Quality and construction are excellent

    I plan to purchase another G-K soon.

    I'll be brief because much has been said.
    A true 100watts (8 ohms) on HP internal or external (but not the 2 together).
    Very little noise (breath) at rest and in motion.
    No vibration, making serious.
    What is needed as inputs / outputs.
    Position "foot bath" as possible.
    Very good precision settings, simplicity, efficiency.

    UTILIZATION

    The manual is in English, too bad, but you can get help
    easy to understand.
    The sound is very good very quickly, adjusting bass amp and quickly.

    SOUNDS

    The sound depends a lot on the bass that is used, it may be round
    as slamming.

    Hon, relative to its size, of course, compare this
    that is comparable is true for anything.

    OVERALL OPINION

    In my opinion the best quality / power / size / weight / price point (289 Euros).
    (I tried a Berhinger BXL1800 Ultrabass of supposedly 160Watt (211 Euros)
    -> Breath ....... and not fishing, mushy, and heavy to carry! )

    For its category, its size and price, this amp is remarkable
    I strongly recommend it.
