    Looking for some advice on matching a head to an Ampeg B-series 410 HLF cab (400W RMS at 4 ohms, 800 peak). Mostly playing w/a Schecter Hellraiser, EMG active pick-ups.

    Hoping to spend $400-600 and so far looked at:
    GK 800rb ($400, 300w)
    Hartke 5500 ($400, 500w)
    Ampeg B2RE ($600, 450w)

    Playing small-medium sized clubs doing harder rock and funk.

    Any advice or insight is much appreciated!

    Of those 3, I'd choose the GK 800RB, and that would also match up well with your cab.

    In your price range, I'd check out the Markbass LMIII @ $599.00, GK MB500 @ $499.00 or the Carvin BX500 @ $399.00!
