Bass Guitar Magazine reviews the CMD Super Combo K1.

Oct. 12, 2017, 5:44 p.m.

Here some excerpts:

  • I used the K1 solidly for a couple of weeks in a wide range of settings from concert halls to intimate clubs – and boy, did it deliver in every situation.
  • With the EQ fl at and the VPF off, the sound from the amp is remarkably uncoloured. This means that whatever bass you’re using, you get the absolutely true sound of that instrument.
  • So far so good, then. We have a compact – if slightly heavy – combo with a billiard-table fl at response and plenty of oomph. And I mean plenty.
  • With such an efficient cabinet design, the K1 was always going to be loud enough – and make no mistake, this amp is capable of some massive sound levels.
  • What’s really impressive is not just the volume this amp can reproduce, but the quality of the sound at such high levels.
  • You might imagine that a single 12” speaker would perhaps lack a little of the very lowest frequencies when pushed, but that redesigned driver and the rear ported cab deliver a flat response right down to 40hz – and on several occasions I actually found myself backing off the bass. Amazing.
  • The new Alain Caron K1 combo is a big step up from the previous model, which itself was a great amp, so if you’re after the ultimate bass combo and you have the funds, you really should give the K1 a test drive. You may not play like Alain Caron, but I promise you’ll be heard – loud and clear…
