    I just took possession of a Markbass Little Mark Tube 500 and a Gallien Krueger 115 Neo. Bit of a strange combination but it sounded perfect in the shop cos the LM generates a warm tubey sound from the preamp and the GK will just faithfully reproduce whatever you input into it. Got it home on the Tube (obviously, cos it's a tube amp) nearly killed me humping that thing. Put it in my music room at home, I swear I can hear it breathing when I turn the light off. I don't have any questions, just needed to tell someone! Any comments however from all you Stingray 4 bangers will be appreciated as always!

    I’m waiting on mine to arrive Tuesday. Played the 800 in the petting zoo and was blown away! Currently, have an Eden d2104xlt to hook it up to and anxious to see what it sounds like compared to the Ashdown ctm-100. Doubtful that it’ll come close but I think it’ll make a great gig amp.

    Yeah that's what I thought too, good live sound without breaking your back up the stairs. You can also run it as a preamp cos it doesn't need a load. That's from Markbass. Will get its first live test this Saturday. Let us know how yours sounds through the Eden

    WELL! Took the LM Tube and GK 115 Neo out for the first time last night. WOW! What a difference! Been playing DI up to now, and never been happy with the sound in the mix. With this little rig though, everything is tightened up, you can get a fat vintage tone but still have the punch without having to boost the mids to the point where it honks (I can't stand that honk). That cab has such a quick response for a 15. Happy!

    Awesome! I’m right there with ya, about the HONK. Every time I hear it I think, “you’re trying to hard and it defeats the sound quality that could be”. But, to each their own. Some love it, I suppose.
    Also, I think the FOH guy doesn’t really ‘get it’ as, he’s also the House band guitarist and their bassist is just happy to be there. My impressions only. Have not heard this being said.
    At any rate, mine should be in this week and the world will be right again.
    Glad you got the sound you were looking for. Hope it was a fun gig.

    ...side note...
    I did get the MBLMTube and it was junk. Had to return it for exchange. Scratchy pots.
