Do people who bought the fusion regret it?

    I have seen so many for sale cheap lately whats up with that? I was thinking about buying one new....but it seems like everyone is selling theirs! why dont people like it after they buy it? not enough power? not a good sound?

    The MBFusion has been my main gigging amp since I got it.
    Great amp.

    buy one cheap to see if you like it then. If you don't flip it.

    Not that it matters, because they both are great amps, but, do you mean the Fusion, or, the MBFusion?
    Big diff, size and weight wise.............

    $350 sounds like a GREAT price as long as it's in working order

    yeah it better be in working order! I am nervous now never bought anything on craigslist. meeting the dude tomorrow morning. I was saving up for the 800 fusion when it comes out....but I dont really need an amp that big.....the dude wantss cash too. should I get his name and addy incase I have to hunt him down and make his life hell? He said he bought it less then a year ago barely played it and it hasnt left his room since he bought it. he has the original box and all the cables it came with. I dont even have a cab to test it.....was saving up for both.

    $350 is an awesome price. IF it is functional and not stolen.

    I sent mine back because it made a high pitched squealing noise not because of the sound of the amp. I loved the sound, did one gig with it and got plenty of compliments. I think a lot of players buy it expecting it will be 'tubey' sounding and it's not particulary. I compared the MB Fusion to an GK MB800 in the store before I bought it and it is much warmer sounding than the MB800, deeper lows, sweeter highs but still has a 'modern' kind of tone.

    I kind of wish I still had one but I was disappointed at how the squealing issue was handled by the repair shop (on behalf of GK) so I returned it for an Aguilar TH-500. Nevertheless the MB Fusion is a great sounding amp and gets a lot of love here on TB for good reason.

    I have been researching amps for like a month! thats exactly what I am looking for clear a little tad of growl when I want it a little warmth...clear nice lows nice highs.

    now if this is in great working order.......what cab do I get to start....i want 4 12sneo....but I dont think it will fit in my car....and it seems so hard to lug into the car if it did fit....so I was going to get one 2-12neo then another later on.....or should I start with the 4-10 neo? I am more into classic rock kinda sound.
    will a 2 12 and 4-10 match up? I know the 15-1 and 410 does not.

    Get 2 x 212 neo. Don't mix speakers. That rig will be all you need man. I love my gk neo 412 with my 700RB II.
