I play alot of gigs with a number of bands on the line up, the deal often is, you bring your amp head and use our cab(s). This saves time micing up and also it's easier to take your equipment to the gig ie you only gotto take a head not a whole rig... i'm looking at getting the ashdown MAG 300 and i was wondering if this would compete with a big cab say and 8*10. i've never really had the chance to try it and i wanna know what to expect. i can't afford too much but i want an amp that has a fair amount of watts (ie i can play thorugh a big rig when i need to) but some thing i can also afford cabs for! I also live in england so having ashdown is an advantage as getting it serviced is easier! otherwise i'd go the new behringer head! any help much appreciated! ps i'm not expecting it to sound perfect!
