    i've been trying to decide on which amp i should save up to get. i've been first thinking of getting a GK 800rb head but then from numerous praises of the 1001rb-II i've been now considering that. the thing i need some input on is about the wattage. i was looking to getting the 800rb because im planning on playing at small to medium size venues. plus if i were to play anything big they usuing mic everyones amp anyways. now if i got the 1001rb-II do you think thats to much wattage? say if i were to get a 410rbh cab with it, if i had it turned down low will it still be enough to power a cab like that. (i'm no expert on this subject) but i think i've read that if your head is underpowered or like not pumping enough into your cab it doesn't sound good at all. basically i just want to know if i were to get a GK 1001rb-II with the 410rbh cab, will it do the jab and be hassle free for the type of venues im playing?
