replacement Markbass amp opinions
Hey guys, you've helped me before, now I have more questions.
I recently purchased a Markbass LM 800 Tube. The other night it shut down while I was playing after a hard pluck while slapping. At no point was it clipping. I turned it off and on, it worked, I did a hard pluck again, it shut down again. restart was ok etc. the gain was abut 10 o'clock. master at 11. tube slider knob was at 1. Now I'm not typically a slap player anyway, I was just putting in a couple pops to hit certain syncopations harder.
Anyway, I've really enjoyed my rig which is that head with the 2x10 traveler 102p. So my question is do I want to exchange the head for the same OR...
Pick up the CMD 102P front ported, tilt back combo for only $150 more? This would give me the option of running both the combo and my 102p traveler cab as a 4x10 setup if I wanted to. The main difference would be less power than the 800.
Any thoughts or opinions are welcome. I think I could swing either way and be satisfied. But I have to act very quickly as my return period is running out.
