I went on a quest this year to fund "my sound". I tried several amps: Genz Benz Neo, Little Mark II, Acoustic Image Clarus, Ampeg V4, Fender Bassman but nothing really was "it" for me. Then I got a Mesa Buster 200 bass head. I have had it for two months now and I must say the search is over. It is clean, quick, and punchy with lots of tonal range. It does vintage and modern tube sounds superbly and with my powerhouse 15 it get plenty loud. For my ears it doesn't grind the way I think a tube amp should, but If I throw my DHA VT-1 EQ Bass in the effects loop with the gain cranked I an in all tube grind city with out my ears bleeding. I am super happy. I am surprised this guy doesn't get more love around here. I guess it get lost in the shadow of it's big brother the 400+. I still think I will pick up a V4 someday as I really loved that amp too, but for now I got no amp GAS.
