    GK recently upgraded both head and cab to handle more power. Closeout on a nice 125W rig.

    If you need more power, I suggest buying seperate the Backline 600 (300W) for the price of this whole rig.

    Guitar player here & was looking at this rig for basement jamming (classic rock). Is it a good match for this gear:

    les paul w / deluxe reverb ri 22 watts
    (I also use an attenuator to cut the volume)

    Drummer has a roland session kit with
    Roland KC-150 Amp

    I have a 100 watt PA

    Other guitarists bring 25 - 50 watt solid state amps.

    Seems like a great deal.
    I don't own a bass yet.
    Thanks.

    It should be fine for basement jamming, but that depends on how loud you play and the acoustics of the room. If it's a dead room and you crank the guitars, maybe not. My current band rehearses in a very dead space, and I'm surprised how much juice it takes. To get an idea, go try a Backline 115 combo. That's a similar (if not the same) amp with a 1x15". If that would be enough, this rig will work.

    For home practice, why not? That's not a bad deal at all. I have one of the Backline 2/10 cabs for home practice. It isn't a gigworthy cab, but for what I needed, and the price, it can't be beat.
