    I have a GK410 Neo cab 8ohms and am looking for a cheap head to use with it at rehearsal. Found an ampeg b2r cheap that a guy needs to sell. Good combo??? I play in a 2guitar hard rock band. Would I be able to push that head enough to compete with the guitars? I run the Sheehan pedal or an mxr m80 as a preamp. What does everybody think?

    IMO, it depends on how cheap you can get the B2r. If it's not less than $200, there are better deals on much better amps. The GK 410 NEO will likely sound good with anything, because it has such an in-your-face presence and great efficiency. Personally, I think the B2r is a little weak on its own, but for cheap, with a pedal and preamp, it could work.

    With those conditions satisfied, I'd at least try it. You can always sell it if you don't love it.

    I've been using a B2r for a couple of years in a loud rock band. It will do just fine.
