    All the music stores near me currently do not carry the Fender 100t tube bass amp. I have a Markbass CMD 102p for small cover gigs and my Ampeg classic with 8x10 cab for large venues like the House of Blues & Hard Rock.

    I like the Markbass for the weight and portability but I miss having tubes when I play smaller gigs. I am considering the Fender 100t and the Fender 4x10 neo cab. I wanted to get everyones opinion on which will be louder (Markbass is 250 watts solid state and Fender is 100 watts tube).

    Also, anyone who currently owns the fender rig, what are your thoughts on it.

    There is a long running thread on the Fender Bassman 100T. It should supply the answers to your questions and then some. Mobile phone won't let me copy a link but it is called The Fender Bassman100T thread. The Bassman 100T will be significantly louder and better IMO than the Markbass. I have played both.
