    Hi guys. I have been using borrowed gear for a while now for both practice and gigs. I have finally gotten to the stage where I have to buy my own. I like having a 2x10 for practice but generally use a large cab for on stage. I intend to purchase two Wharfedale cabinets as they are the most affordable and have solid reviews (one 2x10 200W and one 1x15 300W). I Intend to pair these with a TC electronics BQ250 compact head. I have made these choices as it seems an affordable yet versatile rig. However I am no expert combined this costs me around £360 and i was wondering if anyone could suggest anything they prefer. Thanks, Kevin.

    I've found it never pays to skimp on cabs. However, that doesn't mean you have to pay a lot. Not familiar with the company you mention, but try out some different cabs so you can make an informed decision.
