OVERVIEW

Now get the Goldline 500 and 4x10 Cab in one powerhouse package.

Gallien-Krueger's Goldline 500 Bass Head and Amplifier are available in a single package designed to deliver G-K's warm, punchy tone and plenty of power.

The Goldline 500 Bass Amp Head

The Goldline 500 was developed by Gallien-Krueger to complement the look and tone of the GLX series bass enclosures. It features a 500-watt, solid state amplifier and a foot-switchable boost "valve effect" channel. Gate-Induced Valve Effect, or G.I.V.E. technology, was developed by Bob Gallien in 1972 and is part of what gives G-K its distinctive sound. This amplifier is made using the same quality components as G-K's professional products, such as a high-current power supply for maximum punch and a toroidal transformer for greater efficiency. The adjustable contour and active four-band EQ make it simple to dial in a great sound. The Goldline 500 Amp Head delivers a warm, punchy tone with a fast transient response that not only sounds better, but feels better. The Goldline series is the perfect marriage of affordability and outstanding quality.

The Goldline 410GLX Bass Speaker Cabinet:

The Gallien-Krueger Goldline 410GLX Bass Cabinet is loaded with 4x10" Paragon Goldline aluminum cone loudspeakers designed and manufactured by G-K. Goldline audio speakers are designed to deliver a rich, warm, golden tone with a little extra sparkle in the top end. Front slot-porting is used for enhanced low bass response. Gallien Krueger has given special care to the cabinet design in order to eliminate standing waves so that nothing gets in the way of your performance. The result is a thick low-end with a smooth, even response across the entire frequency spectrum. The speaker cabinet features black carpet coverings, recessed, spring-loaded handles, rugged steel grille, custom interlocking corners and removable casters.

First of all, some of the information posted on this page is incorrect. The correct freq. response on the cab is 50Hz to 7kHz. Note that the cab is 8 ohms. So, you're going to get 350 watts out of this head with cab alone. Also, it weighs 104 lbs, not the 93 lbs. listed here. The EQ on the head is very powerful and touchy, mids are easy to get going and in fact this set up has so much low to it that I actually like the bass EQ below half, whereas on my Acoustic B100 I have to have the bass at 3/4 to get what I want out of the low end. The more you crank the contour, the more the mids are dropped and the highs and lows are boosted. GK does NOT recommend using a 115 GlX with this head. I think you could use a grunge pedal in the FX loop and get the same effect as the boost channel here. The highs are nice, these are aluminum cones after all. Because this head has a high current capacity, your transients aren't limited and your amp keeps up with all your string slaps, power surges, etc. I haven't used this rig at a show yet. The cooling system on the head is very efficient. If the amp senses any shorts or damaged speakers, etc. it automatically shuts itself off. I used to struggle to keep up with my bud's Peavey Bandit 112. Not anymore.

First off let me start off by saying that I was shocked in having to take back the Goldline 410GLX cab after only one month. Now I have to take the Goldline Head back due to the fact the power fades in and out of this thing. After having this problem for the last month or so I checked out if anyone else was having problems with this GK stack, and low and behold a lot of people say the same thing. Hoping to get another GK head instead of this one. Thank god I bought the extra Warranty I only hope they will let me have another GK head and not the Goldline to replace this one. I play out twice a month and don't need problems like this to worry about and you shouldn't either. After seeing how many other people have had problems with this head and cab you would think GK would get it together and come clean and fix the problem for us all.

Goldline 500 Head with matched 4x10 cabinet.

By Hendar the Horrible

from New England

On the plus side I have not experienced problems with the cabinet. The Head (Goldline 500) worked great for a year and a half. I gigged about twice a month. I am my own roadie so I know it was never dropped or wet and spent most it's life in a rack. It broke under warrantee and the tech said he repaired a crack in the circuit board. Well it is back in the shop again. I expected it to be rock solid being Gallien Krueger and solid state Pre and Power amp sections. I know gear breaks but twice in the span of a year is annoying to say the least. I recommend ampeg or older GK. I hope the problem is with this product alone because I always thought of GK gear as durable and reliable.

great product

By ibanezmike69

from richmond,va

i dont understand why everyone is saying theyre having problems with the goldline stuff. i had a goldline410 and backline 600 amp for 3 years and never had any problems works great and sounds great. i then added another goldline 210 and the amp worked amazing with that to. i just upgraded to the goldline 500 head and sounds amazing no problems at all.we play metal. from slow heavy to fast thrash. and it blends great with my guitarists crate and mesa amps.i highly recommend these products. the worst part about them is i broke 2 casters. i screwed my own in that that was it.

short lived

By Anti-GK

from Asheville, NC

I bought the GK Goldline bass head and the 4x10 cab together (brand new) about 10 months ago. I had to end up sending the head back because it didn't work right, it only made cracking sounds. So GK sent me a replacement one. That one worked alright - except for one of the speaker input jacks never worked. I play bass in a gigging band, and I ended up having to get a 2nd cab because it just wasn't boosting the sound enough for live shows. Even with the 2 cabs, the sound was never quite what we wanted. Now after only 10 months this head is starting the cracking noises again just like the first one did. I'm sure it's too late to send back now. I'll be taking it to a pawn shop in hopes of finding a good Peavey to trade it with.

Beware!

By The Trooper

from Slidell La.

Please beware of this product it may be a waste of your hard earned money. I bought this rig from here 14 months ago and my right top speaker is already giving me a problem. It has been broke now for a month and i can't play it anymore. The speaker most have a defect with it because i only play at a quarter or less once or twice a week. And have only ever turned it up to a half for about 30 secs. When I first bought it. This rig did sound great when it was working but now I'm afraid of the amp itself. So beware.

Good for a while....

By TommyHyland46

from Buffalo, NY

Bought this amp in January 2009, and played it consistently until August. Around July, the speakers started rattling and sounded very distorted. Cabinet is no longer playable and I am having to take it to a repair shop. Will be selling asap to get something else. Very disappointed with the quality. The top left speaker moves a ton, yet the other three barely move at all.

great deal but watch out

By Fritschenstien

from oakley Ca.

I love this cab, I have a different head. The only problem is that the head I own is 300 watts. That was still enough juice to blow 2 of the speakers. Basically the GK warranty will tell you that using the product voids that warranty. Paring a 500 watt head with a 200 watt RMS cab is silly. I had to crack it open after repair to fix the rest of the solder points. They are snap together. The speakers look like they should handle 400 watts but watch out on that. Not all the specks match up. Other then that its great.

Bassists, you won't be dissapointed.

By JBassP

from Portland, OR

This amp is the shizznite! It's the only thing I got for my 16th birthday and I couldn't have been happier. 500 Watts shakes the very core of gigs and has the best sounds for the studio. The head isvery simple and yet has some very cool extras. The -10dbs button is very useful for a more "controlled" tone. It is durable, and light considering it's size and all in all a professional stack for a working musician. If you've got the cash, get it!
