    Has anyone tried one of these? I have a friend that wants a decent starter combo and I like the looks of this one but I've never had the oppotunity to play through one.

    I Didn't like it at all. It has a similar sound to the Hartke kickback. Not much warmth at all. By warmth I mean the E string didn't have a round rumble to it. It had a honky sound to it. It's like taking your bas EQ knob and turning it all the way down. That's just my opinion though.

    I'd prob do a light head and separate cab (hint, see my sig below). You could get a nice Avatar cabs for $200ish... A nice head and cab will blow that Backline crap away and you could prob spend about the same money...
