    Hello, Im am saving up to buy a new amp, currently i am using a fender frontman 15b, i just bought a musicman stingray,so i figured i might as well upgrade the amp as well :) . i have played through GK combo amps before, and i liked the way they sounded, very punchy. I dont not like a mellow sound with my playing. Now Ive been reading some reviews of GK heads (because ive always heard there Cabs were mediocre ). Ive found that the 800rb head has gotten good reviews, and i have some basic questions, now keep in mind,im not very knowledgable when it comes to amp,i basically know nothing.

    What is the General concensus on the 800rb?

    Do they have the same punchy tone that i have found before?

    What does Low-300W @ 4 ohm, 200W @ 8 ohm High-100W @ 8 ohm mean?

    Are there any other heads i should consider instead?

    And, Can anyone recommend any Cabs that would go good with the 800rb?

    Thank you, and please forgive my noobie-ness

    The Low 300w high 100w is for bi amping where one cab takes the low frequencies and another takes the high frequencies. Most people run full range now and the 800RB can do that. I've used one before and really liked it. I suggest trying it first though.
