Hi, there All Ye Of Great Wisdom. I currently have a GK mb200 head which I run into a MBE 210 (1st gen. with the silver grille and neos @400 watts). I sometimes daisychain it to a generic old passive 15" PA-speaker to get full use of the 200 watts. I have even been running with the 15" alone. I find this "rig" to be a little harsh soundig, and mid scooped, but have been able to eq to where it is fully usable. I have been looking to upgrade to something a little more powerful for some time, but haven't pulled the trigger yet, working on a tight budget... I have been looking in the local (national) classifieds, at heads in the 500-800 watt range, like the TC BH 550/-800, Markbass LMII(I), and others. These do not appear very often in the for-sale sections here in Norway, at least not at a pricepoint I can defend at the time being, as I don't play much out these days... i would probably soon run into a "need" for new cabs as well if i got one of the aforementioned heads. Maybe a couple of maching 1x12s or something bigger. So; The other day the following appeared on the used market, some 6 hours drive from me: A very lightly used GK MB210 combo (1st gen.) at a very nice price ( about $150,-) said to be bought in 2012 and put in storage in 2013. This is, as most of you will know basically the big brother of my current setup, with the speakers being the same, and the amp effectivly a MB 500. in many ways I think this may be a good setup for me, as I will have maching cabs, and 130, 350, and 500 watts available at any given time. So my question is: Will the mb 210 combo be a distinct upgrade from what i have now, compared to other 500-800 watt heads?
