Just went for a visit to GC yesterday to take a look around and see what was new. I actually came across quite a surprise in the Mark Bass amps. Now i am a satisfied person with my Ampegs (I know a lot of people dont like them but they've never let me down) but i decided to try the Mark Bass amps anyway and it was awesome. tried a 2-10s combo and then their 501 Head (with tube compressor!) with 4-10s and 1-15 hooked up *drools*. Crystal clear and versatile, i was playing smooth jazzy stuff one second and cutting heavy metal the next...turns out heaven isnt too far away after all. And it shook everything in the room and i had the master volume on 1.5...gotta get one! anyway, just thought id share, i thought these amps were awesome, and the price wasnt bad. anyone else get to try these out?
