Looking for a starting point for new rig (upgrading from a practice amp). Would it be better to purchase a cabinet, or amp-head first? I am leaning towards the cabinet because I can use it as an external speaker to my practice amp. Yes, I know there will be a power issue about getting the best sound out of the cabinet. Amp-head later would fix the power issue. The other reason I asked this question is to see if buying separate components (cabinet, pre-amp, amp, effects, EQ) is better than buying a combo? I feel by buying separate components I can get the best of the best for each component, similar to buying a home stereo system. Just curious to see what the members think!
