Amp head (Kustom) and cabinet compatibility
Hi there, long time lurker first time poster.
I own a gold Kustom 200 head (recently serviced, with ground plug) and 215 cabinet. The cabinet is not very portable and is getting a little ratty from being transported place to place, so I'm looking for a replacement. As far as I know, the specs are 200 watts at 8 ohms, and 100 watts at 4 ohms (please correct me if I'm wrong).
I've done some research into products from TC electronics, but unfortunately there are no local dealers in Victoria BC so I am unable to test one out for myself. Does anybody know if I be able to use the RS410 or RS212 in conjunction with the Kustom head without starting a fire? Maybe there are some other Kustom owners who have experiences with combining different cabinets with this head.
I'm playing with a metal band (think Alice in Chains, or Kyuss) and occasionally with a punky surfy pop band. I've always dug the fat clean tone, but for punk rock the Kustom 215 cab lacked a little mid and high range. Maybe I should purchase a different bass head? I'm a hobbyist and I spend a lot of my time doing fieldwork, so I wouldn't play a venue bigger than a large bar with this setup.
