    I'm trying to decide between the EA Doubler and my Markbass Lil' Tube. I started looking for a higher powered amp because I finally got a gig on electric bass playing in a top 40 band.

    I picked up the Markbass and fell in love with the sound. It's even pretty decent at amplifying my Realist pup which I used along with my Jazz fretless at a doubling gig the other night. People were pretty floored with the sound of the Fender but I heard the Pollmann came off a little muddy on the solos (maybe I could EQ that out).

    Then I came across some guys on here that use the EA Doubler and I thought "I better check that out before I settle on the Markbass." The EA is definitely clearer and it has a lot of very useful, very smart options for using a microphone or having multiple tone settings and a lot of customization. Every time I mess with that thing I just feel like I'm dealing with a really well designed product with the highest quality standards.

    So now I'm torn. I really want to be able to blend a mic and a transducer someday and even though the Markbass will do that, the EA obviously has an advantage there. But, I really want to be excited about my electric bass tone.:bassist:

    I was thinking that maybe I could compromise by using a modeling pedal like the Tech 21 VT Bass Pedal for the electric. Thoughts???

    I guess what I'm asking is: Will I be able to get a phat, warm EB tone with the EA and a Bass VT that will make me happy like the Markbass does?
