TB'ers I'm getting reeady to purchase my first rig. I recently started playing again after about 20 years away. Things have changed so much, I thought I'd ask for some help and guidance. I play mostly in my basement with my 12 and 10 year old sons (one plays guitar and the other plays drums). I do play with friends once in a while. No gigging yet. Also, I'd prefer to buy new, but, I'm keeping an open mind. I want to spend less than $600.00 (US) and I've done some research here and on the wider web. Here are the alternatives I've identified, up to this point. Heads: GK Backline 600 (good reviews) Ashdown MAG 300 (good reviews and I like the analog VU meter) Nemisis NA320 (refurbished) These are all about $300.00. And any insight into why there appears to be so many Nemisi NA320 refurbs around? Cabs: I tend to like the sound of 2x10's versus 1x15. Here is what I've found in my price range. These run 225.00 - 230.00: GK 210 GLX Ashdown MAG 210T That's whatI've identified up to this point. What else would you suggest I consider? What are your experiences with this equipment or equipment you would suggest I consider. Thanks for the help!
