    I think I will will be getting a Hartke 3500 and a Avatar B212. But should I get a preamp, or should I say will a preamp work with the 3500? If so what some should I get, try to keep it under $350 USD.

    If you are willing to shell out an additional $350 for a preamp I would get the cab but then buy a pre/power setup.

    This + this + this + Avatar B212 = :hyper:

    More power, cooler rig, awesome tone.

    All together for $1010. Your proposed rig with a preamp would have been $1007.

    Personally I would spend the extra $3.

    :D

    or add a sans amp di box into the hartke. i'm a fan of the 3500, but try and find an older model, you'll like the difference.
