Well after a couple of years of playing through a carvin pb200 i decided i need to step up to a bigger better rig since my carvin can't handle the volumes i'm playing at now. by this i mean that the amp at full crank along with my bass are not putting out the volume and clarity i need and after a little while the carvin will shut down and go into "safety mode". for a new rig i have maybe about $800 at most to play with, spending less would be ideal. for a cab i am really considering a avatar b212 with the kappa speakers and now i just need to decide on a good head. can anyone out here recomend a head with good power, features, and head room in the up to $400 range? i know that is not alot of money to work with but after i sell a bass and my carvin amp i could spend a little more.
