Hey Musicians of Ultimate Guitar,

I needed a new amp for my guitar for my guitar for a recent gig and since I was on a budget I grabbed a pretty sweet Carvin sx 300 half stack thats 280 watts. It worked well for my concert and was worth the purchase. It's a pretty good amp but I'm looking to upgrade it since its like meh quality and its from the 90s. I was wondering if I could replace the amp head with a much nicer head like a Marshall or something like that and use it with my Carvin 280 watt cabinet until I save up enough to replace the cabinet as well. Or do I need to replace both at the same time?
yes, check what speakers are in the cab, 280watts is watt cabs that have V30's are rated, and they are the goto speaker for many companies
