    That's pretty marginal. The Backline series is the budget stuff designed to compete with the other cheap imports. I don't think it'll stand up to gigs and probably just barely make it for practice with a band. Okay for at home though, but you don't need much more than 30-50 watts for that.

    I suggest you buy the highest power Backline head (the Backline 600) and get a 4x10 cabinet from Avatar.
     
  2. okey. the backline 600 is in my price range but i don't think that the avatar cabinets are available in sweden. the 4x10's that i can afford right now are the Ashdown MAG410T, the Gallien Krueger Backline 410BLX-II and the Warwick W410pro. the problem is that the nearest musicstore is about a 5 hours drive from the town where i live so i can't try out the head or any of the cabinets.

    Given those choices, I would go with the Ashdown.

    I have no experience with the Warwick.

    The BL600 gets a lot of respect here at TB. Great head for the price (I use one as a backup), but the BL cabs don't get a whole lotta love.
     
  4. I would also buy the ashdown. but i have heard good things about the warwick. dont buy behringer
     
  5. I wish there was a place around here that carried Ashdowns. I've never heard them before but they look like they have some nice combo amps/speakers.

    As a GK lover, I wouldn't recommend that pack to anyone. There is no advantage to that, considering it is, in effect, a combo in the fact that neither the head nor the cabinet can take on any more wattage, etc. without replacing the other. If it's a stepping stone, so be it, but don't expect it to be anything better than a two-piece combo amp.

    I have the Backline 600 head and the Backline 115. I think they 600 is a great head, but the cab is just ok. I don't experience any mud, but I do have some pretty heavy EQing going on between my bass, pedal board, and the EQ on the amp. Given that you have those 410s in your price range, I would look at pairing up any of those with a 600 before turning to the Brat Pack.

    Buy used. There are better cabs on the used market for what you'd pay for a new Backline.
