So now I'm looking for a reasonably priced head and cab (not more the £450 for the head or £300 for the cab and fairly light) for band rehearsal, mostly reggae and Ska. So what do you guys recommend?

I recommend the GK MB500 head, about £420 from thomann.de. That light little head packs a real 500 watts at 4 ohms. A good light cabinet is the Gallien Krueger NEO115-III (£420), or perhaps a Markbass Traveler 151P, which is lighter, but about £440. Don't know if those prices include VAT.
That GK MB500 can easily push a pair of either of those cabs, so you can expand it to that—which would make a formidable Reggae rig. Me wi see Ya!
