    I was messing with a bass earlier today at my local music store a 2008 MMEB Sterling HH oh my a sweet bass.The store plugged it into a little Mark CMD JB Player School Combo because they know im a single 15 guy.OMG i loved the tones of this little thing i believe its a 150 watt combo out of the box i was really suprised i picked it up felt light to me about 45 pounds.I liked it so much i ordered after a bit of research the CMD 151P Jeff Berlin model i also hate tweeters.So see ya later all my heavy back breaking gear.The JB player combo sounded pretty loud in the store im not sure with a full band around me if it would forsure cut it.The 300 watt version will im positive cut...No kidding try these things out finally a light combo with sweet tones.

    I went a little bigger with two 151P cabs for my Little Mark III head. But I only use one cab 90% of the time. I love the tones I'm getting. I also dig my CMD 121H combo for rehearsals and smallis gigs. I think the Markbass sound is great.

    I love my Jeff Berlin, it is my church rig and it is fantastic. It was not my first choice when I was looking for and amp but I got a deal I could not pass up. I am so glad I have it now, the tone in the mix is perfect.

    The JB Player is about $650 the CMD 151P Jeff Berlin model is about $1200 here in southern Ontario.I wasnt looking to spend that at this time ha ha but i guess i can trade of the big heavy stuff to get it.

    I've been playing a Jeff Berlin for a few years now and I couldn't really be happier. It's just rock solid and sounds awesome. A few months ago I added an Aguilar NS 112 cab (I know, sacrilege, not only did I mix driver sizes but brands too!!!) and it sounds fantastic.
