Help me buy a decent head

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by lowendlover, Sep 19, 2008.


  1. Ok, heres the deal, im ordering a Avitar Neo 410 cab, and i want a head that will do it justice. I've got roughly $600ish dollars give or take (can be more) to work with. I looked at the Markbass lil mark II but heard that the smaller heads don't give you the same "balls" as something bigger like the ampeg stuff. Also tried some GK stuff like the 700RB-II but i don't know what im really looking for. I've got lakland joe osborn 5 and i play hip hop stuff, and in a wedding band so it's all jackson 5 and earth wind and fire and such. Any ideas of what will work to get that sound?

    Myself, I'd go with the GK, but I'm a big GK fan and have used them for a long time.

    Have you seen the brand new MB500? It looks pretty amazing with 350 watts at 8 ohms and 500 at 4 ohms and under 4 lbs. Everyone is raving about them and they've just started shipping them.

    I would take a look right here in the Classifieds section of TB.
    There are plenty of great deals all the time on there.

    If you want to save some coin and still have a sound with "balls", check out the new Acoustic B200H heads at GC. Don't let the 200W rating fool you, they're "old school" watts match with ample tone slection.

    My 2 cents,

    No disagreement with the other suggestions. I had a GK400rb back in the day, loved it and sorry I parted with it. Just sharing how impressed I was by the new Acoustic, a bit of a sleeper until you actually try one:eek: And surprising for the dough. They are even coming out with a B600H late October early Nov. if anyones curious. Should be a monster for about 4 bills I think. The B200H goes for about $250.00.:cool:
