    I'm looking for a ligthweight, reliable and versatile amp to use together with my Markbass 102p 4ohm cab. I mostl While browsing through offers I've found a new LM III head for around 526$. I've used a LM II before and I did like it a lot (partially for it's neutral tone), however it died on in the middle of a gig. Granted, I've bought it used, but still.

    There is another possibility though - I've found an almost new Microtubes 900, still under warranty and used maybe once or twice. I love Darkglass, I've used their effects and preamps before and I know their products are rock solid. The question is - isn't it a bit of an overkill when taking my cab into consideration?
     
  2. Yes it is overkill, but used sensibly it'll be fine and if you get another 4 ohm 102p and use the 900 at its 2 ohm setting you'll have a rig capable of most gigs.

    I've read that it can be switched to work like a 500. So that might be useful as well for my current needs.

    I have been using my LMIII since 09' and never had one issue.

  5. I vote DG. Having a B3k and Vintage built in is a winner.

    The problem is I already have the B3k in a pedal version. But still, this might be an option. I'm curious which one has a better power amp.
