Which one is better? (or do you prefer?)

And what kind of speakers do i need for these? (celestions etc?)
and is 4x10" enough for 1 of these heads?

Thanks!

I like the HA better because of the ability to blend SS and tube sound, but it's really up to you. 410 should be plenty, but I prefer it with the 115 on the bottom. Again, it is all YOUR preference, not what we say.

I use an LH500 because to me it just sounded better than the HA3500 plus at 8ohm the LH500 puts out 350 watts while the HA3500 puts out 250 watts. Although in real terms thats not a significant difference it is still more power from the LH500.

I run my LH500 through a Hartke VX410 cab and trust me it's more than loud enough for any situation I've found myself in

Is there a really big difference in quality? or is it just taste?
Because i can get the HA3500 for like €100 cheaper (2nd hand) and the LH new

I wouldn't say there's a quality difference. It's just the LH500 catered to my taste better than the HA3500

either amp with a 410 cab would be easily loud enough for any gig you're likely to do short of playing a stadium.

The speakers in any hartke cab will be made by hartke. They don't outsource speakers.

Yeah, just do the one you like better! Like he said, the LH is technically more powerful, but in that difference isn't great enough to set the amps apart for that specific reason. It will be more difficult, but if you can, see how the different 410 cabs act. Around the 400-600 range, there are several series that they have. I'm not sure of the difference between them, really. (I know some are paper and others are metal, but I'm not too sure beyond that).

The HA2500 has a straight solid state preamp and a tube emulation solid state preamp that you can blend together while the HA3500 has a straight SS preamp and straight tube preamp that you can blend together. And finally the LH500 just has a tube preamp.

Did they stop making 350 watt HA3500's recently? I bought mine and then they just seemed to disappear. the model is 250 watts now.
I love my HA3500 but I wouldn't buy the newer models. I would just get the LH and a rackmout or two for tone shaping.

EDIT: nvm they still make 350 watt heads. When I ordered this they sent me the rack-mount version by mistake though. I actually like it better.

I'd go with the 4x10 and get a 15 to add later whichever head you decide.
Mine sounds pretty good with the paper cones. You can check out the band "rivers of nihl" to hear what it sounds like I saw them and the guy had a hartke ha3500+4x10+1x15 set-up.
