    So I was thinking about getting an Ashdown MAG 300, but now I see the GBE400 is only $50 more on Musicians Friend. What do you think? I'm probably gonna run it through an avatar 212. How do they compare?

    The Genz Benz will be slightly louder and the build quality will be nicer than the Mag 300. Tone wise they will actually be somewhat in the same range. For 50 bucks the more the GB is totally worth it.

    GB. I have the GBE 400 and it is badass.Playing it through a genz neo 2x12 cab.
    $350 on that head is a steal. If you get the genz along with the avatar 2x12 @ 4 ohms you will push 350 watts, at 2 ohms you'll push 450.
