My Endorsement Of Gallien-Krueger Amps & Cabs: A Bass Geek Mega-BlogSaturday, July 23rd, 2011
For those of you not following me on social media (and what’s the matter with you, by the way), you may not have heard the news: I am now a proud user and endorser of Gallien-Krueger bass amplification products. Specifically, my new full-stage rig is a GK Fusion 550, a GK 2001RB (power amp only), and two GK Neo 4×12 cabinets. I actually used GK rigs on the recent Dethklok and Steve Vai gigs, and had a great time playing them. They sound freakin’ awesome. I’m extremely honored and proud to be a new member of the Gallien-Krueger family.
Some of you are new here, or really don’t give a rip about what gear I use and why. Feel free to skip this post, in that event. But for those who’ve followed me for a while, as well as the more bass-geek-minded among you, this may come as a bit of a shock. After all, I have been playing SWR amps and cabs for 20 years, and I only worked for the company for 8 of those years. Rest assured, I didn’t come to this decision lightly or easily. I staged one hell of a soundtest before choosing as I did.
It’s not for the faint of heart, or anyone not fascinated with the technical details of bass tone. But if what I just wrote tickled your geek bone, then this blog’s for you.
Either way, I look forward to many happy gigs with my new GK rig, and I want to thank everyone there (especially Brian Clark) for making it possible.
