Ok as it stands now I have about $1,000. I play with 2 guitarists (at 150 watts each) and a loud drummer. So I would need about 600 watts coorrect? I was thinking 410's would probobally be my most efficent cab. Due too simply getting a 4 ohm 410 cab and not worry that much about wiring it correctly ect. So this is where I get too my problem. It seams that 4 ohm cabs that can handel atleast 600 watts are expencive. I can get more money so it's not that big of a worry for me. I was originally thinking about getting an ampeg-3 pro head and an ampeg svt410 hlf cab. They would be paired correctly with 4 ohms each. The problem is that the head only has about 450 watts of tube power and thus wouldn't sufficnetly power it, correct? I have herd it is better too have a head that over powers the speakers then one that underpowers them. So I looked at the Gallien Kruger 1001RB head. I like it's features and I can afford it and a good cab aswell. It's just that I would be overpowering the ampeg cab if i got it. I dont know how bad a problem that is. I was thinking about getting a Gallien Krueger 410RBH/4 instead. I would however be under powering that one though. I don't like the SWR hi-fi tone otherwise i would look at them. Their isn't a trace elliot or genz benz or aguilar dealer in my state. Also Avatar dosn't ship too Alaska. I could have them ship one too a relative and then up too me but I would spend more on shipping then the actuall amp i fear. I can get more money, but it will be slow. I eventually could purchase an eden if I wanted too. I would just be absent from any band or giging activity for a few years. I just want too be herd and be able too hear myself. What should I do? I could get a job, but I would have too wait until about July befor I could and that still doesn't solve my delima of what I should try and purchase. Also if it helps I am looking for basically an amp that has punch with alot of midrange toneally. Thank you for reading my post. Also I have herd that I should be very werry of used amps. Is that true? EDIT: I should have put first real gig amp. I already have a few things like a fender bassman 150 that I use for home practice and can be herd during band practice, not so much during shows.
