    Anyone use one of these?

    I'm considering buying one, and putting Avatar or BagEnd cabs under it. Probably a pair of 15's.

    I've tried the Ashdown ABM-500 head, awesome, but out of my price range, and I don't need that much power.

    I'm using the 200watt version in a 1x12 combo. It holds it's own against most I've played with... but I'm not in the metal crowd any longer.

    I'm looking at Bergantino and Bag End (and Ashdown too) for an extention speaker.

    I love the tone!

    I use a MAG250 head... great amp for the price. I use it with a 4x10 and a 1x15 cab, and it sounds really good. I ususally do gigs where the bass will have PA support, but when we have done smaller gigs, it has managed to keep up with the rest of the band, even outdoors (although that may have been pushing it a bit!! ;)).

    It has a great tone (imho ;)), and if its loud enough, I think its a good choice :)
