    I am getting my first real Cabinet and need to choose between these two heads, i will be playing punk/hardcore and will be using it with a Hartke 400w 4.5xl cabinet(8ohms). At 8ohms they run at 180w i believe.

    Also does the head being 180w at 8ohms mean that i will only be getting 180w out of the cab. I am playing with a loud drummer, and my guitarist is playing through a 150w amp.

    From what I understood, the GK amps sound much louder because of its serial gain staging. It will sound like twice as much with the boost circuit kicked in. The tone is great also.

  5. My Backline has never let me down.
