I bought this when my band started playing more shows (I previously was borrowing a stack from a friend.) The price on this was great and I know G-K has a good reputation so I went ahead and bought it. So far it's done great for playing parties and small bars/clubs, but I don't think I could use it to play anywhere bigger than a medium sized club. Once the volume is at about 75% the tone is simply killed... It has a really cheap/distorted/overdriven sound that makes my ears cry. Fortunately, there is an XLR output on the preamp that allows you to hook it directly up to your PA system/mixer so you can have a louder volume. The preamp is pretty nice, it has a lot of features including a distortion channel (never use it though), contour adjustment, and different holes for a tuner, footswitch, and any effect in/outs... This stack is also pretty durable too, the cabinet fell out of the back of my Jeep one afternoon while unloading for a show and it was in perfect working condition. I have no complaints considering the price, but if I could change one thing, I would add a little more power so I could turn it up louder.Buy it!

Can't be expanded and sounds bad by itself!

I bought this GK Brat Pack to get back into playing live thinking it would beat running through the PA all the time. Big mistake. You can get a decent sound out of this if you play it low, but if you even try to turn it up, it all turns into this muddy, roaring, painful sound. No clarity at allThe amp has a minimum of an 8 ohm load and you are very specifically told not to hook more than one 8 ohm cabinet to it. It was not made to drive more than one 8 ohm cabinet and it sounds like crap with the one 15" cabinet. I was able to hook up a 212 4 ohm cabinet in SERIES, not parallel (normal daisy chaining of cabs is parallel and drops the ohms). Because of that series connection I was running a 12 ohm load on the amp which was safe. If it was the normal parallel hook-up that would have put a 2.67 load on the amp and that would have melted it. Then the sound was OK (not great but OK), but rms watts dropped to about 85 from 125 (higher ohms=fewer watts delivered).Don't buy this package thinking you can use it on it's own as anything other than a practice amp or that you can expand it later. Kiss off using it in rehearsal let alone a gig. All was not lost for me though. I use the GK 115 speaker under an acoustic 410 cab powered by an Eden Nemesis RS400 (400 watts at 4 ohms) and that works great! Just don't expect anything out of this "Brat Pack" outside of a personal practice amp.

We used this on stage and it caught on fire. During sound check of all things, a month after we bought it. So save your money and buy something more reliable.
I am a very active musician. I bought this uit because I have always been a GK man. I love the soud of GK Bass Amps. I also like the portability and amp covers that come with this uit. It is designed for the gigging bass player. The negatives i have heard about this unit revolve around volume issues. I have experienced no such problems. I think that some people try to get more out of their amps than they were intended to produce. Any amp sounds muddy if you drive it to hard. That is why this amp is equiped with a Low Impedence output. It sounds great through a PA. I run the channel gains low and the master volume at about half, and I get tons of beautiful GK Tone. After goig through the PA, it will really thump you. For the money this is the best unit i have ever owned. The Dirty channel is also a nice feature, just keep the Drive set at about half. If you are looking to get that GK sound and still have some green in your pocket, this is your baby.
This is a sad half stack. It really is. I had to use it for alot of gigs and it never had enough power to get through the air. A professional musician tried to help me to get a good sound out of this and he couldn't. I was in a jam session and the head actually blew like spars shot out the back. We sent it in and the customer service was awful. they wouldn't respond, and it took almost 4 months for them to get the head back to me. We had two shows that were really important that we weren't able to do because of that I got it back and the speaker started rattling really bad. honestly I do believe that certain ones may be made better and that mine was not made well at all.
This amp is not designed well or has a heavy enough speaker to be a value for any type of use to a professional musician . I tryed it twice and put it in the back of my trailor where it belongs . Rattle Rattle .
this amp is worth the money. it sounds great and is loud. people who say the cab distorts at high volume did not EQ the volume right if u turn the level A volume up to loud it starts to distort but if u leave it between 1/2 of the way to 1/2 it sounds awesome
This amp is great! It's large cabinet provides superb resonance especially for upright basses. I play jazz and rock gigs and this thing won't give out.
This amp is pretty awesome. You can get an amazing low tone out of it and a pretty nice high tone. It can shake your walls at about 1/4 of the volume and the thing sounds awesome. Great buy for the price. Nothing better I tried about 5 other amps out at a local store.
I baught this amp because I needed a good loud amp for gigs. Its a nice amp except for the fact that you can't play it for very long without it overheating and the restricter cutting the signal. I played to gigs with it and both times it started cutting out after a few songs. It might have a short or have been slightly damaged during shipping but I have to return it. Everything else about it is great though. The sound is really good and it can get real loud, if only for a short time. You should test one of these out if possible before you buy it and research some other amps. Im going to pick up a SWR Workingman's 15 in place of this amp.
When I first got this halfstack it wasnt called the brat pack but was essentially the same thing. it sounded really good, very smooth. The only trouble I had was that just after my 1 year warranty ran out, the amp head messed up and it sounds like its on constant overdrive, which really sucks because you lose so much bottom end with the overdrive. But I know a guy that can fix it, and plan to buy the goldline 4x10 stack and put this 15 with it as well.
This amp absolutly rocks. When I first plugged in I wasn't expecting much but wow it blew my socks off! If you are looking for a nice but fairly inexpensive amp this is the one.
