After months of reading and researching I have just decided on the Max vs the Streamliner, and now I have run into the issue of the GK MBA800 possibly taking the lead in the search for a new amp. I play a MTD 635-24 and play in an up and moving fast punk/prog band. (Think Dead Kennedys meets System of a Down) I do slap/ tapping/ and fingers, but mostly fast picking stuff. I have 2 4X10 old ass Yorkvilles that have been with me forever. I had all of my old gear stolen about 3 years ago, and had a 1001RBII. It was really nice sounding but fried twice in a year. Go!
