    Hey guys this is my first post.

    Well I been using a combo for awhile and now I'm upgrading to a half stack. I'm really liking Hartke's stuff, so here's the deal I'm stuck between the LH500 and the 3500A:meh:, and I am thinking about going with the VX410 cab

    I'd appreciate all opinions :help:

    While I have respect for the 3500A, I'm pretty damn impressed with the LH500. Its got a real simple, REAL warm sounding passive, class A tube pre. We hardly ever need 17 band graphic eqs to get a good sound (that's what the board is for!), so a nice, simple, pure tone is the way to go!

    I've always liked hartke stuff, but never been a fan of their VX stuff. Check TB or craigs for a used 410XL; should be ~$200-250, and a WAY better cab. That with the LH500 is a great rig.
