Long time no speak! I have been living in Paris, France. I owned both the GK MB200 and MB500 before I moved here a few years back. I loved the MB500 in the year I had it in Austin before I moved. I had just got the new MB200 when I moved to Paris. Never was able play it with the speaker before I sold it due to my playing situation here. I am coming back to the USA in the next six months and will be able to hook into my 4 ohm TC Electronic 212 again. I am 40 years old now and will try to play in a band that probably plays out a total of 10-15 times total a year. Maybe more if it is ever really due to the band being requested. Don't care really. I don't play heavy rock or in super loud rock bands. Can I get by with the MB200? It seems that some people seem to think it is batter sounding anyway. I know the MB500's are more than strong enough but I am not sure I need that much power if the MB200's have enough to stay loud enough to play with a standard good drummer. Help me figure out which one I should get!!!!! Help!!!!
