    Well worth the money

    This is a very well made amp, could not ask for more. Makes a cheap bass sound good and a good bass better. You can make this amp sound any way you would like. The control panel is very easy to use to get the sound an tone you want. The -10db control come in handy when going from low out put to high out put basses, but when you change from low out put basses to high out put basses dont forget to hit the this button or every thing in the house will move. With the Aux in you can play CD's or MP3, an can be used with headphones as well. With 500 watts an 4 10 inch speakers expect a lot of sound. Tone still sounds good on low volume or high. Thanks Sweetwater an Brent for all you have done for me with getting my money worth, an Gallien-Krueger for making a great amp.

    Excellent Combo Amp

    Great sound in a truly lightweight cabinet. Plug-in and play - it's that simple. The controls are intuitive and easy to see and use. This combo is quite loud and clean sounding: but you can also dial in a nice "growl" with the boost control. Try as I might though, I cannot come up with the same measurements for the cabinet as the description. For me it was no problem, but if you are extremely tight on space this may make a difference. The measurements I get are: 23.5" tall/23" wide/16" deep. Those are the outside measurements sitting on the floor. I like this combo a lot (I like anything that helps me sound better) and will probably add the matching powered enclosure at some point in time.

    That famous GK sound in a 500 watt combo

    I chose this combo because I wanted the aux in and headphone jack.
    I did buy the 4/10 matching 500 watt powered cabinet, now I'm pushing 1000 watts. The sound, low end, mid, and highs are just killer! I love everything about this GK set up. Practice with the combo alone and play live with the matching cabinet and you'll have all the bass you'll ever want or need. Another quality Gallien-Krueger product. Fun as h*** to play through. It's pretty expensive but what high end bass amps and cabs aren't? Well worth the money.

    a little bit of everything.

    Good Rockin' Amp

    I finally got a chance to get this amp in a nice loud band situation. 2 guitarist, each using a 2x12 combo playing classic rock. For lightweight and high volume this amp definitely makes the grade, even with a 5 string it has strong tight lows. Being a sealed cabinet it has a bit of SVT flavor you can't get with a ported cab and at 49 lbs it's easy to move. The overall tone is fairly natural with a slight mid-range bump. So it is not HI-FI sounding like some brands but will cut through guitars just fine. YMMV but here are my complaints considering this is not a terribly inexpensive amp. It lacks pre-amp out and power-amp in connections, an extension speaker connection, an effects loop or a tuner out. I personally don't use effects loops or tuner outs, most combos these days run at 4-ohms and don't have an extension speaker option(annoying trend) but I really would like line-level pre-amp and power-amp connections at this price point. There are times when I just prefer to use a different pre-amp such as a tech21 BDDI. I did not find the boost, limiter, or contour switches to be useful to me. If you like the GK sound and don't mind being a little hemmed-in on expansion options, because you'll almost have to buy one of their powered extension cabs for a matching bottom (or buy an A/B box / splitter and run a 2nd amp), then it is a really good amp. For some folks/situations it will be perfect amp. Classic and old school hard rockers will love it.

    Full Disclosure: I purchased a demo model at a significantly reduced price. I am not sure I would pay the full new price for this amp with the aforementioned shortcomings. I am satisfied with my purchase though and as always Sweetwater's service is second to none.
