Looking at the reviews for each, that particular GK looks a little disappointing.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

I use one of those ashdowns at band practices and it is a really nice amp for the price

i have an ashdown amazing quality, was gonna get the 15" of that amp but then my dads mate went to the shop with us and got a good deal on a MAG 300 but GK is in most ppls eyes a better brand.

go for the ashdown. definitely. GK usually make a better amp but in this situation ashdown win.

on the effects front, i'd suggest a korg ax10b. fairly versatile and it's among the better multi-effects out there.

Oh, yeah. If you can get a good deal on a MAG, never look back. Fantastic amps.

I'd say ashdown, if you had like 1500 I'd say go to a music store and order a warwick amp, I have a warwick halfstack I got used for 500, it's my only amp, and it kicks ass
