    I personally think that head is too much for that cab there are plenty of inexpensive cabs you could pair with that head and have a great Rig.

    The amp is fine. The limitation of it will be your cab, and that's where volume comes from. A bigger more efficient cab will get pretty loud, but a single 8 ohm 1x15 will only go so far. Don't push it further than it's happy. If it starts to sound "farty", you've reached it's limit.
  4. The Hartke 3500 is a pretty good amp and you can find lots of used ones at good prices.

    It is rated at 350W into 4 ohms and 200W into 8 ohms.
