GK's RB Series bass amplifiers have been setting the standard for over two decades. Inside these compact, lightweight "super structures" is the most advanced bass circuitry available. In 1972, Bob Gallien developed what he calls G.I.V.E. Technology (Gate Induced Valve Effect). This 'valve effect' is integrated into the design of all RB Series heads and is part of what gives them their distinct sound. The RB Series heads deliver a warm, punchy tone with a fast transient response that not only sounds better, it feels better. GK's renowned voicing filters and intuitive four band active EQ make it simple to dial in a great sound. Everyday thousands of players around the world in arenas, clubs and basements plug into GK heads because they love that sound.

So many sound companies use this head on the back line...I push this into 8-10s and 2 horns and have THAT bass sound, the elusive one that I'd looked for forever!

when i set out to buy a new bass rig i chose GK. so many of my musician friends dismissed it saying "I've never heard of them" well if you're not a bass player you probably haven't as bass equipment is all they do. and they do it well i might add. visit their website and take a look at who uses it. what i love most about this head is the ability to shape your own sound. i was finally able to get that sound that i had in my head out through this head. and more than enough power to fulfill any demands i have from i'm currently playing it through a GK 810rbx cabinet and this head is capable of running a second one if i so desired. i'm a GK fan for life and i plan to upgrade from my current cab to one GK NEO410 and one GK NEO115. i'll post reviews accordingly when purchases are made. oh another thing i absolutely loved was the price quality and ability was outstanding for what i paid

I picked up the 2001rb head yesterday and when trying it out at L&M turned it up to 5 and literally shook the store! Tons of punch and the cleanest sound I have ever heard. if you don't have any grape pupon I highly recommend this head to any bassist who wants a stand alone sound that punches its way through any and all instruments you play along side.
