    What do you mean by character? Tonally? Cosmetically?
  3. used GK 400RB through just about any speaker cab configuration.

    +1 for the Ampeg B100R.

    Also, the GK MB115.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Used to own the B100R and would definitely +1 its mention.

    The only reason I sold it was because it wasn't powerful enough. Damn fine amp, though.

    I'll second the G-K 400RB. Classic go to amp.

  9. Classic Trace Elliot is some bargain priced tone, bargain priced loud too.
  10. My back up Crate has character, in a its almost as big as a 210, lacks power and makes mud come through any cab kind of way:D
