Hi, I am a newbie here. I just wanted to post some of my mistakes so others won't make the same ones. I was a bass player 20 years ago and then for some inexplicable reason people kept asking me to play guitar so I switched, well I just recently switched back. Not really knowing anything about bass I soliticed some advice from an old bands bass player who frequents this board. Super nice guy and gave me good advice. He suggested I talk to Avatar about getting one of their specials. You get an Ashdown bass head and a speaker cabinet for short money. I looked it up. I called them and made the deal. I thought I was getting an ABM325 and got a MAG300. I also asked him if the 2X10 cabinet was sufficent to handle the amp, and if ity wasn't I would go bigger, maybe 2X12 or 4X10 if absolutely neccesary. I was told 2X10 was fine. So now I have a cheaper amp head than I wanted and a 2X10 cab that can't remotely handle the power. Moral of the story, listen ask more questions, and don't trust everyone. I probably should have come here or listened more to my friend. Sorry to ramble, I am just feeling pretty stupid right now. My next question is the ABM325 that much better than the MAG300, has anyone ever compared the two?
