    Been looking at these and really want one.. Thinking of getting one with the MBE 410 cab - can anyone give me some feedback on this set up?

    I love the fact that they're both so light.. Any common faults with these I should be aware of?

    I've gigged an MB500 somewhat extensively. I've never had any problems with it. It's been a very solid and dependable amp. If you like the GK sound it does it very well.

    I have no experience with that cab.

    I've got close to 300 gigs on my mb500 in the last year and a half.... Rock solid.

    I love mine, it does what you would expect, I use it for rehearsals, some mid size Fri/Sat night gigs, nothing outdoors (I've got a bit more umph for some of those gigs when I need it).

    I personally like the tone, I can get it where I want it.

    I'd buy it again in a hearbeat.
