I know SWR, Eden... are the best amps but i like my hartke3000 with marshall 7041 and 7115. Try marshall cabs. I think they offer good rock sound and i was surprised how clear 7041 playes high notes. They are not expensive but I think they give a lot for the money. Both are built well but 7115 seems to be built really well and solid. IT will last rocking. Hartke 3000 isn´t bad. Sometimes I find a really nice sound out of it. Marshall and Hartke are good.
