Warwick LWA 1000 vs. Markbass LMII ?
Heard a few things about this new lightweight head from Warwick, it has a compressor on board,1000 wt with some interesting EQ features.
I've been a loyal player of my markbass Little mark II for a long while, I got one around the time GC first began stocking markbass, I have one of the first edition versions..and it has always performed perfectly, I gig in NYC a lot and need a lightweight rig.
I've lugged it to all sorts of venues, had it on the floor, in the back of vans, carried it all over the place and really cranked it up..outdoor festivals and stuff..the thing seems to never run out of headroom, and i can always get a better than average tone using active basses, my U-bass..whatever..
she's durable,reliable has super power & great tone, low noise..no loud fans..she's been with me for a long time,
I may get a nice,fresh new head, just because I want something new w less mileage, I'd also love an on-board compressor.
If I could get a decent comp in my head, I would do away w my pedal-board for most gigs, and just use my Tuner/AB box.
I would say the LMII's tone isn't the best I've used, but it's very good, and I'm so used to the tone, that I know exactly what to expect from it, I've learned to work w the tone over the years successfully.
has anyone out there tried this new warwick head?
i wonder if I'd like it, I havn't found it anywhere in NYC, I'm considering buying one and just taking a risk,selling it if I don't dig it..
I wonder if there is an inherent tone to Markbass amps that I find pleasing, and will I be able to work w the Warwick?
Also Considering one of the other, newer Markbass heads that has compression built in..I might wind up going that way.
I've found that if I take a risk, and try new things, it can really payoff..
I'm tired of using a pedalboard for so many gigs, I like to use my Boss limiter and tuner/AB box most of the time,
I've decided to get a new head with compression onboard,
& ditch the pedal-board for most gigs.
Has anyone tried this Warwick yet?
and what were your thoughts?
any other info about this new head?
