    Just wondering what's the best amp head out of these two, judging the pros and cons. If any of you ever tried these I'd appreciate the opinions. As far as what I've read on the internet, it sounds that the HA3500 is better, but it's just something I've read and here in Portugal I'm kind of limited to try these out. Oh, and what is the tube pre-amp? Do these heads have really built in tubes?

    Thanks for the attention

    I have the HA3500 and will assume the HA5500 has the same features with a little more juice. I'm running 2 cabs (4 X 10, 1 X 15) with no problem.

    I really enjoyed my 3500 when I had it. It started acting up and would get overheated, though. May have just been my unit.
