    I am considering a thunderfunk TF420 or a GK 1001RB2. Is the TF $300 better? Has anyone compared both to give me something to make it easier? I will match the cabs after the amp decision. Thanx for your input.

    Both are very nice.

    The TF is all fat and warm, remarkably so for a SS amp. Very flexible. Big sounding overall.

    The GK is tighter and is capable of a little more aggressive sound than you'll get with the TF. Also flexible, but not as much as the TF's extensive EQ. The 1001 is a bit louder.

    Both can attain similar sounds to each other but not exact.
    Can't go wrong with either head, IMO.
