    Bought my GK Backline 115 used but looking new. The year of manufacture that I received is the one with the Red Comic Sans lettering on the front panel. I play an Ibanez SR 905

    The Pros:

    - build quality is excellent
    - all pots turn nice & smooth with no noise
    - excellent use of multi-colored LEDs on the front panel
    - Very solid speaker grill, especially considering how large the square openings are (about 3/4" square)
    - unlike some of the other reviews, mine is super quiet up to 3/4 volume and very acceptable near full volume (that's with a GK 210BLX-II cab attached for 175W of glorious RMS power)
    - Pro quality 1/4" jacks
    - Front panel push button switches that should last the life of the amp (excellent action, smooth and positive)
    - strap handle on top, fold away spring-loaded side handles ... very nice
    - Well made cabinet, 3/4" with carpet covering that's very durable
    - plenty of ventilation slots to keep the head cool at max watt usage

    the Cons:

    - big, bulky looking plastic cabinet corners

    For the price (when New) I was stunned at how much, and the high quality, that was given.

    I matched a GK 210BLX-II cab to this amp and it pumps out 175W rms into 4 ohms. This amp is clean, sounds great and it's more than enough decibels for most jobs and when it's not, there's an XLR out, on the front panel, to run to a PA.

    I used to play out with an Ampeg bass head and Altec Lancing Voice of the Theater cab with 18" Peavey Black Widow (received many accolades) but man, was it heavy to lug around (good thing I was only 26 then). This GK 115/GK BLX-II set-up sounds just as good, just as loud and I can leave the BLX-II cab at home when it's not needed.

    If you come across a very good to excellent condition used GK Backline 115 and it sound tight then buy it for $300 or less and you most likely will not be sorry you did

    PS ... with an on/off latching foot switch you can switch between Ch A & Ch B and with CH B set to zero volume, it makes for a very nice Mute {8^D

    I had this amp for about 3 months before i started having problems with it. Granted, it is a good amp as long as it keeps working like it should. I had it for about 3 months when suddenly the sound was just went dull and distorted. took it back and replaced and that amp did the same thing 2 weeks later. GK does have some great equipment, but I think that they need to take this amp back to the drawing board.

    Great for practice and small gigs

    I love the rock back feature so you can make it a monitor, it also has a direct out for the P.A. system.

    I have used this amp for about 3-4 months now and it is Awsome. The sound it puts out is clean and crisp. When you want the crunch the overdrive is there to back you up. A must have for any bass players out there!!!!

    Great bass amp

    This is a great bass amp, the only thing I didn't like about it was the company put in the wrong speaker so I had to get a new one, but it is great!

    Great amp!!!

    By jwalk90

    from Puyallup, WA

    I got this amp a couple of years ago. It hasnt dissapointed me yet. Once you figure out how to work the amp, you can get any tone you want out of it. Some people were talking about the amp buzzing, but ive only had problems with that once. I was using my friends bass which had cheaper pick-ups that didnt cancel out sound very well. If you have decent pick ups( ex. Fender, or anything about the same quality as the P-bass) you shouldnt have any problems. If you can work the EQ right, you won't have any problem with the volume of this amp either. ive played in huge gyms, open ares, auditoriums, etc., and i havent had a volume issue yet. If you do, you can always hook it up to a sound system too. There are many different EQ options too. As for the distortion, i havent ever had a chance to use it yet. But I love messing around with it when im playing by myself or with friends. You could use it if you played that type of music. So overall, I love this amp, and I definetly recommend it to people of any skill level.

    Just a review

    When I bought this amp I had only played on a Gallien Krueger and an Ampeg, so it was my first choice for an amp. After I played on it, I loved the sound I got out of it, but one of the things I didn't like was it's shape made it very difficult to put in a trunk of a car - but other than that, I would recommend this amp.

    Pretty Good

    By Scott-J5-TA

    from Las Vegas MV

    Well i bought this a little over a year ago it is still working great. No buzz or feedback. My complaint is that it is not as clean as other amps i've played, such as swr. The distortion on it is a nice touch, but who uses distortion with bass?

    i was unimpressed with the amp. when i first received it and turned it on to listen, there was an annoying buzz. Changing the controls would not fix the problem either. Other than that it was a decent product with alright features.

    Great sounding combo

    By Mikey-yRvJ.

    from Shreveport, LA

    I love the sound this amp makes, however, if you turn it up past 6, it distorts. The balanced line out really does a good job.
