little mark vs. g.k.

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by mike costelow, Apr 20, 2009.

  1. :help:I am in the market for a new rig and have narrowed it down to a little mark tube 800 or a g.k. fusion 1050 neither are in stores yet as far as i know.I am leaning towards the markbass,the motorized knobs on the g.k. make me nervous.I like the idea of running through a neo4-12 cab which g.k. has and m.b. does not and i dont know if the mark bass could power 4-12s.I do play weekly and do play big stages and small clubs so i want something light but with lots of power if i need it.my current rig,peavey firebass 700 thru 212 and 115 and man am i tired of lugging that thing around!I do want a tube pre-amp any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Probably a bit early for people to have formed strong opinions about either of those two amps. Good luck with it.

    Ya, no kidding. You should probably wait till they're out before you ask opinions ;)

    So, are you implying that we TB'ers actually need first hand experience to form an opinion? ;)

    Yeah, come to think of it, that was pretty dumb, huh?

    OK, whichever one has more blue LED's is the winner.

    Hmm...wants something light and is tired of lugging around a 212 and 115, but wants a 100 pound 412 and a 40+ pound Fusion1050?
    When it comes time, see what actually sounds good to you through your bass, and then decide what you can afford and fit in the car by yourself. I know that what I think sounds good doesn't sound good to everyone else.
    Maybe just save money and buy a cart for your current setup if it sounds good to you.
