What's a good Head, and a good Cabinet to buy as a step up from combo amps?
right now i'm looking at Hartke, and Acoustic.
if i had the money i'd look at Markbass, or Orange.

What's a good Entry level Head and Cabinet to get to a first time Cab user?
Carvin has some grate stuff. I recommend the Carvin BX500.
'08 Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster
Boss CS-3
Vox Satchurater
Peavey Classic 30

Fender Jazz
Carvin BX500
A head+cab isn't an upgrade from a combo, it completly depends what head and cab, and what combo you're talking about.

Ampeg make some of my favorite bass amps.
"In modern music, a lot of people are really stuck on the example, asif it were the idea. It takes millions of examples to articulate an idea, so don't get stuck on the f*cking example." - Joshua Homme, 2008.
Well for me it'll be an upgrade, i have a tiny little 8" 15 watt Line 6 bass amp for my room, and i use my friend's dad's 70 watt Hartke bass amp when i practice with my band.

i really just need something louder to use at gigs. something with a better tone than the Line 6, and something with good EQ control.
Acoustic stuff is great. PM Dr.Pain-MD, he has an Acoustic bass head that he rather likes.

You can find their old ('70s, '80s) amps for dirt cheap.
