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

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.

Amazing amp

By thric3lover

from Cupertino, CA

See all my reviews

I'm a converted guitarist, and this is my first quality amp.Let me tell you...this amp is friggen sick.I'll keep it short and simple, but this amp can pretty much hit whatever tone you're looking for. It has an amazing distortion/overdrive capability that makes it sound more like a baritone guitar with some nice distortion on it. It sounds excellent clean as well. Can also give that nice growly sound. It's extremely well built, and fairly heavy considering it's not all that big. But it has good, quality handles on the side so you and a buddy can lug it around. It also has that lean-back capability which is nice if you're jamming with the band and need some more clarity in hearing yourself.My only complaint would be that for a 200W amp, I was expecting it to be a bit louder. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty loud, but not quite as loud as I was expecting. At least it's capable of connecting to another cab to boost up to 300W. I'm in a band at the moment, and we'll likely just be doing small gigs for now so it's fine.

Best Amp I've Owned

By Ross-rjXYg

from Oklahoma

This is my first 'real' bass amp and it rocks. It is sturdy, cool looking, and versatile. I use it in a bluegrass gospel band, my school's pep band, and my hard rock band. It is easily loud enough for small gigs with the bluegrass band, and for football and basketball games with the pep band. As for the rock band, it can compete with my guitar player's Marshal half stack as long as he doesn't crank it all the way up. I love the wide range of tones I can get out of this amp with my Fender Jazz Bass. The distortion is cool, though I don't use it much. The boost knob adds a really cool overdrive sound.This amp is tough enough to handle being loaded in and out of the backs of pickups without showing any signs of wear. After about nine or 10 months the spring broke on one of the handles, so it doesn't snap back in place, but it's not that big of a deal.Great amp if you're looking to upgrade, or just for a good amp at a good price.

A nice surprise

By speeker6

I tried this at the store and it blew me away. It instantly made me a better player. I got a cracking once in a while, not sure if it's the windows in the house though. I use it for a church praise band. The volume is at 3 and it just fills the room(80x80). The equalizer is set at all 12. This give a nice warm thump for the music I play. We practice sometimes for three hours or more and it gives reliable sound every time. The direct out is also a plus as the sound man can adjust up or down when the room is empty or full. great bargain overall!

Yeah baby!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I purchased this amp to replace a vintage ampeg. What a difference. This amp is clean, it sounds great, 10's are tight and responsive. I usually run the gallien eq flat and pull a little bit of the mids and highs out on my bass. I love the kick back design and the portability. Great job Gallien!

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!

Best Combo Amp

By Basic_Skill

from Houston, Tx.

This is one of the best combo amps to have if you're playing around at gigs. I've only had it for 1 month and it's really good!!! It's has a clear sound once you get use to the setting. So if you're looking for a good combo amp to use BUY THIS ONE!!! :)

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.
