    Well it has finally arrived and sitting on my desk :hyper:
    Quite tiny, perhaps a little heavier than my Shuttle 6, but smaller in a way and actually prettier.
    Pics and first thoughts later today!!!

    I'm still stuck in the office so won't get to try it until later tonight :crying: but I will compare directly with the Shuttle 6. I do expect it to be quite different though...

    Make up an excuse and go home and play that thing. Then write us up a full review, take some pictures and post them and give us some sound samples. You'll be up late but take tomorrow off work.

    What is this business about a job? Your career needs to take a backseat to the GAS-fueled needs of the TB community. Frankly it shows a lot of disrespect and a lack of caring on your part. I suggest that when you get home tonight you take a long look in the mirror and think about your priorities.... Before doing that please do a full review with pictures and soundclips :D

    In all seriousness I'm EAGERLY awaiting your review. I'll be buying one of these before too long regardless (barring a maelstrom of horrible reviews), but a little added GAS never hurt anyone... Or emptied their wallet... Or potentially ruined their marriage... Wait...

    I played through the MB2 today at my local GC. They literally had just gotten it in. It was paired with a new neo 410 cab. I have to say, IMO, that it sounded killer. Very fast low end, crisp highs, and the boost/solo feature is very cool. It seems to be less mid-rangy than the Markbass amps. IMO it has more useful features than a Markbass LMKII or the F1, and is roughly the same size as the F1 (but lighter). It has fast low end due to the class D power amp similar to the F1. I think that i am going to sell my LMKII in order to pick up this new GK. It has a mute switch and you have the option on the D.I. to send out pre EQ. I am really impressed with this amp.

    Any comparison to GK's more conventional amps such as the 700, 1001 or 2001 models?
