    I bought a starter pack two years ago, and I still have my crappy little practice amp. :bawl: I wanted to get something new, affordable, and something that would really give me my bang for my buck.

    do you think this would be worth it? my price range is up to $400, and i can't find any other head/cab packs in my range. any advice is appreciated. :) :hyper:

    Although I have not played it, the price seems right. In fact the link you gave stated $300 for both. Now many might tell you to save your money, get second hand and defintiely more wattage however this probably gets you closer to where you want to be without spending a lot.

    GK backline stuff is pretty bad. Why do you need to upgrade? Are you in a band? If so, what do you play?

    I don't know if it makes and differance to you,but the Backline stuff is made in Tiawan. I have a little 70 watt Backline I use for practice and I'm not real impressed. People swear by thier other stuff though.

    do a search on Avatar. Save a little more money then go this route. Plenty of volume and is affordable. Dr. Bass is another company to chekc out for bas cabs.

    As for bass amps also chedk out the Groobe bass 1200.
