    Hi people, ok so im not so knowledgable on this subject.

    at the moment i have a cheap (but quite nice) laney r3, but i need some more oomph and punch.

    i am looking to buy an avatar cab (b410), what are peoples opinions on these?

    and when ive got some money, ill buy an amp head, however i have no clue where to begin - i want a sound thats very clean, punchy, funky, with lots of highs, but also has some major oomph on the low end. what about an EBS head?

    input pleaseee.

    hmm...

    thunderfunk. clean, and tons of punch. the switch does give you a psuedo EBS like openness, but not crazy much so.

    course, there's EA's iAMP line and Epifani amp line as well.

    for cheap, there's GK, but i've been falling outta favor. just seem to get more and more flimsy.

    how much you willing to spend? check the emporium, TONS of great deals.

    the avie neo got a nice write up in the last bass world mag. terry buddingh liked it enough.

    and i'm sure dave does overseas shipping.
