Being an old fart, I'd just like to tell all you young kids, that I think the greatest amp deal out there right now, that sounds the best, is loud as hell, and is cheap, is a Behringer 300 watt head, and a Legion Sound 8-10 bottom from Steelsound, out of Colorado. For about 600 bucks total, you will have a great, loud, amp that will last you for many years. You can always bring a smaller cab for little gigs, but I don't think there's any thing out there anywhere, that will beat this set-up, for price, to volume , to sound , and reliability. I use mine all the time and love it! A lot of us guys can't afford these designer cabs, and audiophile type heads! This set-up is cheap and I think sounds as good as the stuff all these people tell us is better. I think alot of folks have to say how great they are, just to justify to themselves that they were ok spending that much on these set-ups, when they aren't any better than what they could have had for cheap!
