Hey guys!


I'm thinking about upgrading my head unit soon and i have considered this head unit http://gallien-krueger.com/products_artist_hd_1001.html#

First of all,

would it be good for powering my Warwick cab, the cab is 900watts handling at 6ohms. what do you think?

Secondly,

Is this tube or Solid state?


any help would be awesome

'Marlin.
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

if its that high of wattage, its solid-state. and also head unit makes you sound like a dumbass, its called a HEAD
#3
Is that even a guitar amp? lol
Its a Rack unit anyways whatever it is,
it looks like a complicated Power amp for a PA system though?

EDIT: oh it is a guitar amp, i just looked at the picture properly,
CRAZY high watage though, its as solid state as they come.

I'm sorry but are you a god damn douche.

It makes no ****ing difference if you add on the word unit. Thats just what what its called around here.

And also a high wattage amplifier can still be tube.

yeah man it just sounds funny if you say head unit lol

"And also a high wattage amplifier can still be tube."
Yeah thats true, but very rare thought, 120 watt tube would be the average max,
you wouldnt NEED anymore, you wouldnt be able to tell the difference on a 120W tube amp after around 6 or 7 anyways, its crazy. Why would you want higher tube wattage than
120 watt anyways, just make it harder to get a decent tone.

Why do you need so much wattage? Are you playing stadium's every weekend or something? lol
I can't imagine the tone from that thing either, or the PRICE TAG!

what head have you got now?

I currently have a Warwick ProFet 5.1 churning out 500watts at 4 ohms.

my problem is that my cab is a Warwick 611pro, it is 900 watts handling but at 6 ohms so I'm obviously arn't getting my 500 watts out and when i'm playing bass its' bearly keeping up with a drum kit.

so i wanted to get a better sounding head with a higher wattage so the wattage after it has been divided by the resistance is still high.

Oh holy **** its a bass amp?
probably shoulda guessed that....
your not being heard over your drummer with a 500 watt head?
is the ohmage not switchable on your head or cab?
i'm not as sure as i should be on ohmage, i just know they should both be equal, but i think it's bad for your amp if the ohmage on the cab is different to the head?
Maybe that could be your problem.
Why do you want a rack unit though? Get an ashdown head or something, our bassist has it, amazing amp.

Amps an amp if it sits on top of a cab or sits in a rack, Atm the Warwick head is in a single slot rack/flight case. Alot of bass heads are that way.

Well that ohm's change the amount of watts you get from the amp to go out of the speakers.
i could just get rid of my cab too and get a G-K cab too.

It's a bass head guys...

That high of wattage is possible with tubes on a bass head and still not drown out a 100W tube guitar stack.


TS, I'm not sure really, I'm no expert on bass amps, but Gallien-Krueger does make a good amp.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
