    There seems to be a fair amount of info on the "MB" model. It appears the other model is (was) for Canada & Europe. Anyone have experience with the latter of the two or better yet a direct comparison?

    The second one never went into production.

    From what I see you can buy them on line from Canada and UK

    Well, even if they did, they're not in production currently, hence the reason they're not on the Markbass site. If they made them, they only did a handful.

    The Euro web stores also show pictures of a version of the Compressore that never went into production.
