Hi guys, I'm living a tremendous dilemma regarding the amps. right now I'm happy with my Markbass 121h, one 12" speaker, 16kg in weight, tons of volume and a "modern" middy and precise sound. I find it very useful with the Low B string, clear and full, and thick on the high register with the High C. I love how it makes my Gibson SG sound "middy" and not muddy and I can use it outdoor without an extension and without DIing to the mixer (but I still prefer the DI and the fact that I have the separate volume for it). However, a couple of weeks ago I bought a '78 Gibson Ripper, a wonderful beast, and tried it on an Ampeg Micro VR stack at the owner's house... you all can imagine, I fell in love with it, with the "grit" of the Ampeg growl. now I can't get it off my head, buy my feeling are mixed: 1) the Markbass combo is an high quality combo with a wonderful sound and it transmits durability and quality in every inch. I know that I can do whatever I want with this combo and be sure it won't have problems. 2) the Ampeg has a beautiful sound, but I'm afraid it can be undersized for gigs, because of the small size of the cabinet and the "only" 200w @4ohm (I don't want to carry two cabs!). also it seems a little fragile, like if it was just a toy or a design furniture for the house the Markbass seems much "stronger". 3) I can sell the Markbass at about 550€ (italian price is 830€ when new) and the Ampeg costs on Thomann 555€ new. do you think that switching from Markbass to the Micro Ampeg can be a mistake? PS: I don't like the PF350 and PF500 heads, I've tried them in the last years and they sound different from the Micro VR.
