    Im saving for a head and cab and i know that i want an Avatar B212 cab but i dont know the head. I was thinking a Gallien Krueger 800rb ... what type of tone would that give me?

    Im bassicaly going for the Stuart Zender tone.... (Jamiroquai) . Its got some "pop" to it, i guess strong mids. Good for slapping and funk. I would not like to spend over $300 used .

    I would like about 300 watts at 4 ohms.

    That sounds about right. The GK's are known for their cleanliness, and quick attack. Good amount of mids, too. The 12's might round it out a bit, but I think it would sound great.
