I bought this amp a year ago, and it has been great up until a couple days ago. Using a Digitech BP80 as a compression device, you can make any sound come through on stage. I have had only three problems with this amp. The first was that I dropped it on my foot and broke it... my foot that is, not the amp. After striking my foot the amp rolled 15 feet down a hill and crashed into a curb, still perfectly fine and working like it was brad new. My second complaint is that the combo by itself actually puts out 180 watts, not 300. The two 10" drivers are 16ohm ran in parallel, which makes the load seen by the amp an 8ohm load. The Backline 210 puts out 180 watts at 8ohms. While fully capable of driving 300 watts, you need to purchase an extention cab in order to do that. My third complaint is that 5 days after my warranty went up, one of my speakers blew with the volumes and boost knobs at 12:00. I solved this problem, and the power problem, by purchasing two Eminence Legend BP102 Bass Speakers. These are 200 watts each unlike the stock 100 watt ones in the combo, and they are 8ohm speakers. This means that when run in parallel you can make the amp see a 4ohm load and consequently work to it's full 300 watt potential while blasting awesome Eminence tone. All in all, a great amp with lots of features including a pretty hot direct out. I would recommend replacing the speakers straight off, and wearing work boots while lifting this thing, in order to fully enjoy this amp. I would definitely recommend purchasing this amp, it really is a great buy and you can't go wrong with the great tone!

I played this amp with my Warwick Double Buck Corvette and couldn't get a good sound no matter what I did. With such a quality guitar, a quality sound should be easy, but this amp had no life. It was all together a very limited and bland sound with no life, no shape, no edge, and no body. I would recommend no either going for higher end GK or looking into SWR, which I have always had the best of luck with. The only promising feature of this amp is the fact that it has its own overdrive, which is cool, but also cheesy. Just another low quality gimmick. I would much rather buy a nice used amp than a new one of these, any day.

Good for the price

By Pocket Grooves

from Greensboro, NC

See all my reviews

I have used this amp on many occasions. For the price, you get decent power and good sound with a lot of pro features. The drivers are good, though there is not a compression horn. The highs still cut through, but the tone isn't as crisp on the top end as I would prefer. I don't really use overdrive in my bass playing, but the overdrive on the head is pretty good. The preamp has a great EQ section. This combo isn't terribly heavy; unless you have a back problem, you should be able to load this combo without additional assistance. I wish that the amp delivered all 300 watts without an extension cab, but the 200 watts of the combo is good enough for a small - medium venue. The XLR out makes this amp usable in larger venues to run through the PA.Overall, this is a really good combo with some pro features. Great for weekend warriors.

It's a great amp

By BassMan-d2WmQ

from Sacramento

Its a really nice amp, a little heavy, but its worth it. The tone shaping abilities are nice, and its just loud (in a good way). The distortion would be my only complaint, its not amazing, I prefer the boss overdrive pedal, its a lot better.

Very Pleased

By HamerFan

from Boise, ID

This is my first experience with an amp larger than my 35 watt 10" peavy. I was stunned when I plugged it in. I instantly became a better bass player. The sound was incredible, the manual gives great suggestions on EQ combinations, and it has plenty of volume for the guys I am jamming with right now (two loud electric guitars, rockin' drummer, keyboard). For the price, this was a great deal. I really don't have a need, but I am axious to try adding a 12" or 15" extra speaker to this combo to see how much better it will sound.

Purchased in Nov. 07. Been using GK for 25 yrs. Very warm sounding rig at lower levels. Typically run EQ flat. Indeed, these drivers do not handle a low B very well at all, nor can they handle any sort of increased volumn levels. With better speakers I could use this rig for just about any venue. Let the house system do all the bull work! That's not what a bass amp is for!

Great Amp

By Yogasawy

from MI

See all my reviews

I went to the guitar shop and the worker suggested this amp and I tested it and was blown away by it. Incredibly loud, im sure the whole store could hear it. It's got a lot of features including distortion which was pretty cool I thought. I reccommend this amp for anybody, whether it be for guitar or bass. I plug my Ibanez Artcore into it and it still keeps a great sound to it.

By Mad Mike-M5qK7

This is a great combo amp. Has 2 channels and a direct line out to a pa system. Cab drive a cab with 300 watts. 4 band EQ. Very punchy amp. Really like its versatility.

problems

By Dylan Trebizo

from Redlands, CA

I got this amp in december, and about 2 months later, the speakers were blown. I took it in to a guitar shop that is a licensed gallien krueger repair shop, and replaced the speakers. About 2 weeks after i had gotten it back, the speakers blew again. I'm considering changing them to Eminence speakers, because i know a guy who has had this same problem, and he changed them, and hasn't had a problem since. So i dont know whats wrong with this amp, because i didnt even have it turned half way up.

GK Backline 210

By sunburst_socal

from Orange County, CA

I bought one a few years ago to use at smaller classic rock gigs. My main rig is pretty big and this is light, portable, and sounds great. I also like that I can tilt it and use it as a stage monitor and use the direct out to the PA. For what I use it for it works great and sounds great.
