i can probably play the orange before buying, but not for a while, so help on GK's quality would be great.

i'm mainly looking for quality over power, but is the extra 50 watts worth it for -25 euro?

basically how does GK compare to orange in quality... thanks.

Get the Orange combo. The GK Backline series is notoriously inconsistent. I think the Orange will be a much better and much more reliable choice.

Second the Orange. Only issue is that you're probably going to have issues being heard over a drummer. Then again the backline isn't all that much louder and that one is notorious for bad sound and worse reliability.

just play on both of them to see wich one you want not much we can say that could change your mind once you have experience yourself with both.
