    GK 800RB, Hartke LH1000, or SWR 350X. I can get anyone of these locally for $300. Which would you get and why. Thanks
    I'll be using a pair of EVtl606 cabs with 8ohm 15 inch kappalite3015's
     
  2. 800 RB; just because I've had one for over twenty years and it sounds great with that type cab.

    LH1000; No experience, but sounds like a good price I guess.

    SWR 350X; NO! These always sound like half their rated power to me. I've used them on supplied backlines.

    V. Wooten plays thru the Hartke LH1000. How could you go wrong paying only 300 bucks for that thing?!

    800RB. Great amp. Throw it down a flight of stairs and it'll still fire right up!
