Hi everyone, This is my first posting. I am currently using 2 Aguilar GS410 8 ohm cabs and a Ashdown ABM-500 RC amp. I want to get more power and i want to go the pre/power amp route. Im going to get the Aguilar DB680 but i don't know whether to go with a Aguilar 758(tube amp) or a QSC PLX3402 (solid state) power amp. I know they are completely different in every way. My questions are these: Does the Aguilar's 400 watt tube amp have enough power to play any gig up to large out door gigs, and also would this be a good choice for me considering that I play everything from Meatl to jazz to lots of Funk Slap(I need something very versatile). For some reason I'm under the impression that tube amps aren't the best for the sound slappers are looking for. OR Should i go with the QSC which is cheaper and is has much more power or should i spend the money on the Aguilar and will i ever need more power than watt is provides? Your help is appreciated.
