    I'm currently on the look out :ninja: for a new 300-500watt rig (Head and 4x10). After much research and review reading I have shortened my list down to this:

    SWR Workingmans 4004
    GK 700rbii
    Hartke 5500
    Warwick Pro Fet IV
    Ashdown ABM 300

    I would very much appreciate any useful information from any one out there. If you know of anything else within this middle of the road range don't hesitate to mention it. Just keep in mind that everything is much more expensive here in England. Cheers!
  2. That ashdown's good looking :D. But I'm a fan of the workingman's series, it seems built well, sounds decent, and my next rig will either be from them or Eden.

    I have the 700rbII and it is awesome. This thing kicks butt. I can't say much for the warwick or ashdown. The hartke stuff will always be good for cheap, but I think the GK is Quality for price. It sounds fantastic and is very easy to dial in your sound.
