    Im upgrading from my old gear and i recently got my hands on a Ampeg SVT 4x10 Cab and it sounds great but now im looking for a head and am unsure wat to go for.

    Im looking for something that can help put out a great rock and/or metal sound for no more than $250 - $300

    any ideas?? o_O
     
  2. I used a Hartke HA3500 for 2 or 3 years and I was satisfied until I started roaming these forums. I primarily used it for metal/heavy rock stuff. Never failed on me despite loose knobs, input and output.

    Old Peavey's are also a possibility then.

    You might find a GK 400rb head in your price range.

  10. Get a hartke LH500 , its 500 watt as 4 ohm , has a tube pre amp and i think would sound excellent through ur cab, and they are cheap ! There is a number of threads on TB , just do a search.

    Hartke..

    Peavey Mark (something) or tour if you want solid sound

    Peavey Megabass or GK RB if you want hifi.
