    I've been amp shopping this past week, and its been tough. Really, I had no idea what I wanted, but i am trying to keep it around 5-600 clams. I suppose technically I could spend more, but I found lots of options in this range. First I was looking at a used Ampeg portabass rig, an eden rig (the e300 and a 210) also a portaflex, also combined the eden and portabass w an older swr 410. But the combination that really speaks to me is a peavey headliner 600 (used for $219 and blew away a PF500) and an Avatar 410 neo 8ohm. Seemed to have enough volume and really liked the tonal options on the head. Hope I'm making the right decisions. Any thoughts?

    Only you can answer this, just remeber, wattage is usually not the answer. Big spkr cabs are.
     
  3. Sounds like you made some good choices.
