So, im trying to choose between these 2:
Ampeg PF350 (350 Watts) $299 Buy Ampeg PF-350 Portaflex 350W Bass Amp Head | Solid State Amp Heads | Musician's Friend
or.. GK MB200 $250 Buy Gallien-Krueger MB200 200W Ultra Light Bass Amp Head | Solid State Amp Heads | Musician's Friend
I would be using one of those with an Ampeg BSE410H cab (4x10, obviously) rated at 8 ohms and 200W.
Im asking this, because i've seen on many threads here, saying that the MB200 is in fact more powerful than the PF350 (despite the PF350 has 150 more watts. Even some guys who owned both (they proved with pictures), said the MB200 was very comparable to the PF500 in volume and that the tone is clearer on low notes on the MB200). I've also read that many people had problems with the PF350.
Since im in Mexico, there's no way i can try any of these myself (but i'm sure it's much better than what we have over here), so all i have are youtube videos and your opinions. Since an uncle is going to bring me the amp with him on the plane from the USA, it needs to be REALLY small, like these 2, also my max budget is $300.
So... what do you guys recommend?
PF350 or GK MB200
I would be using the amp with a Tech21 Bass driver. I'm looking for this differente kind of sounds (Links below). I dont know which amp would suit better with my Tech 21 Bass driver, to at least sound a little like these guys, that sounds just beautiful and is what i'm looking for.

Thanks in advance. Saludos
P.S: I play on a covers band, so, sometimes i need a very clean sound for some songs.
