Back in December I bought a $1200 setup at Guitar Center. I got a 350 watt ampeg head with a 1000 watt 4x10" cab. My friend, the other day, got a year old head (same watts, 350) and a 6x10" (brand new) for only $1100. He is capable of having more power than me now, I think his cab can hold 1200 or 1300 watts. But yeah. I got jakced, no? I mean, I've heard my setup used in a live situation and it does OKAY. Not too great. When competing against other guitar half stacks, it seems to get outpowered quite easily. Especially tubed ones. Yeah. This kinda sucks.
