    What do you think of getting a Bag End 15 and Epifani 2x10 for Acoustic Image Clarus head (200 Watts into 4 ohms, 300 watts into 2 ohms)?
    Would it be technicaly possible? How would it sound?

    Thanks

    Well I've actually tried an epi 210 UL and my bag end 1x15 together off of a few amps, but not the one you're mentioning.

    The epi has more lows than the bag end, and more highs due to the tweeter. The bag end has aggressive mids and is definitely more of a "colored" cabinet. The Epi has "polite" and "refined" mids and is more accurate. Alone each sounds awesome, together, they sound un-freaking-believable.

    how's that?

    So what do you think, together, they would be best for what kind of music?

    I think that I'd be tempted to throw a little more power at them personally.

    a lot more power actually! The BE cab sounds like Blues Rock or Funk to me.

    But the thing is that last year I saw Christian McBride playing that amp with Epifani 410 and 115! It looks funny, but sounded quite nice.

    What do you say about that?
