So I finally decided on what amp I should buy - and I chose a Markbass CMD 121H LM3 combo. I chose it because of the sound, but also because of the weight, and the possibility of being able to gig with it, if needed in the future. The only thing I'm slightly worried about is that it's going to be way too loud to use at lower volumes in an apartment / bedroom, since it's a 1x12 cab rated at 300 watts. I know that you can use the master volume to adjust the volume accordingly, and the amp being SS means that higher volume doesn't make it sound "better" like a cranked tube amp does.. I don't know - maybe it's my excessive worry running loose again, but I just would like to have someone chime in, so I can rest my head reassured that I made a fine choice.
