Great Combo, but very heavy.
I've only gigged it once, and was complimented for my sound. It blew my guitarists Mesa xxx rectifier away volume wise.

It has GK's parametric eq
it's Bi-amped- 340w to the 210's and 50 watts for the tweeter.
It has tilt back feature, and a telescopic handle that makes it easy to wheel around.
It's also pushes 540watts with an additional 8 ohm cabinet.
I use it with a Warwick Corvette standard, and Ric 4003, and a Musicman Stingray.
It gives me a nice mid range growl, and can also achieve that very treble like Duff McKagen(GnR) tone.
It takes a little while to dial in your sound because it has so many features, but once you find it, it'll sound great!
Seems pretty tough...structure wise.
The electronics board looks like a maze or computer motherboard.
The fan diodes have a tendency to go up on these, but you won't fry your amp because it has a safety feature that cuts the amp off in the event that a problem is detected.
I already have an Eden CXC 1015 and a 72 Kustom Charger, but I got this to be my main amp. The Eden is too big for some of the smaller venues, but I miss the 15 sometimes.

This thing has everything. 540 watts total when I add a 15 or a 4x10 for the larger shows I play. Its small but kinda heavy, but I have a road case for it anyway. This is a little beast of an amp that sounds incredible and can be adjusted to just about any setting you want. And its really easy to set up as well.
Ive used it with a '62 P-bass, and it gave me the warmest tone that the bass had to give, totally true to its roots. I'll be running a Marcus MIller Jazz thru it soon too, once I get it back. A G&L 2500 with the 5-string voicing contour sounded beautiful. I play variety shows with everything from surf pop to hip hop to hardcore rock, and this is a great amp that covers them all. I couldnt get it to distort for the life of me, i dont want to be close to it if it does though, itd have to be up really loud.
The controls are very self-explanatory and the manuals online are a great resource to clear up any confusion. If youve used GK before, its second hat to you already. My Eden rig is similar.
Its like Jordan and Barry in the early nineties...you cant stop it, you can only hope to contain it. Great consrtuction, no rattles.
I love the way it sounds and when coupled to an additional RBH 410 quad it is a killer rig.

This combo is bi-amped- two 16 ohm woofers driven by 340 watts while a separate 50 watt amp drives the tweeter. It has full featured XLR balanced D.I. which functions well. 5+ string, button instantly tweeks voicing filters to better suit the low B.
It is very flexible- From muddy Sub Dub to the most crisp, biting clarity. Great for funk, Booming thump and punching pops.
Finding the sound best for you can take awhile because there are so many variables, but somewhere inside it there is the perfect tone for just about any application
Very ruggedly constructed to give years of hassle free gigging. I haven't owned it long enough to tell you about long term wear and tear or how often professional service is required to maintain its function
