Hi, I'm new to the forum. I'm an older guy who hasn't had to buy an amp for many years. I've hooked up with some guys who are playing mostly blues/Dead type of material. I use a MusicMan fretless StingRay for about 80% of the material. We are just going to be playing local clubs. We are guitar, keys, drums and me. My main problem is that most of the part numbers from stuff in the stores do not match the manufacturers' web sites. So, I really can use some advice from you all. After viewing the limited choices, I've narrowed it down to 2 options: G&K 700RB-II head with either a 410SBX or 410GLX (Gold) cab (480 w @ 4 ohm, 320w @ 8 ohm) (4-10" speakers) (I can't find the 410SBX on the web anywhere, just in the stores.) Eden NC410SA 250 w @ 4ohm combo with 4-10" speakers Bunch o' questions: Have any of you had a good or bad experience with either of these 2 set ups? The Eden is made especially for Sam Ash, so the exact specs aren't on their site, only on Sam Ash's site. It has suprisingly nice tone and power, even though it has less wattage. Is 250 watts enough? I'm playing with drums, keys and one guitar. It's less versatile as far as EQ (3-band) goes, but is 62 lbs and less expensive than the G&K. The G&K has a lot more features, (4 band EQ, filters and bi-amp) but is more expensive and heavier. Do I need all that? I've heard the gold speakers are brighter in a club setting, though it was hard to tell at the store. Does anyone have experience with the 2 cabs? Thanks everyone for your help! Any suggestions or comments at all would be appreciated!
