  1. I am looking for a rig that is loud and has good tone. I have a budget of 600-800 dollars. I was looking at an Ampeg svt410HE cab, and the gallien-krueger backline 600 head. does that sound good? because i also heard that the avatar 212 with the ashdown head works well too. I'm not quite sure what to get... or maybe a mix. or maybe you all have some other ideas.
    thank you!

    The bigger Ashdown (if you can afford it) and the Avatar 212. Ear Candy and Dr. Bass are also good cabs on the more budgeted side. If you want something real clean, go with Avatar with the best GK head you can get.

    Man I've got other ideas but they would blow your buget away. Although GK is a good company, I'm not a fan of the Backline series. I do love Ampeg but the 410HE doesn't have much bottom. If you can't go w/ the better GK's, and I do understand being on a budget, then I'd do the Ashdown Avatar thing.
