    I've accepted an offer to be in a 2nd cover band (both bands are Top 40 Classic Rock) and want to put together a 2nd rig without investing a whole lot more.

    Currently I have a Mesa 400+, SWR 410 Goliath III and Eden 115XLT as my main rig. I also have a spare Eden WT 300 and Hartke 115T.

    I was thinking of getting a 210XLT to add to the 115XLT and run with the 400+, but wonder if I would be degrading my sound by going from the Goliath III to a 210XLT. Or I could pair a Powerhouse 115 and 210 with the Mesa 400+.

    For the second rig I could keep the Hartke 115T and add the Goliath III and power them with the Eden.

    Or keep Rig 1 as is, and just find another decent cab (115, 112, 210, etc.) to pair with the Hartke/Eden for Rig 2.

    BTW, both bands have adequate PAs, so I don't need a rig to carry the whole load. Any ideas?
