    Right Hear (...it's a pun. Use your ears!). ;D
    I'm just a user/customer that plays gigs. I am not professionally affiliated with any vendor, etc.
    FINALLY, a post from me that's NOT 'necro'!

    :p

    If I may... for whatever it's worth at all, I've been on a posting binge raving about the Markbass Ninja 102-500. YES, there are a zillion amps out there, tons of competition, all are awesome for many different applications, but I've gotta tell ya... the MB Ninja 102 500 combo is seriously AWESOME. I've been posting how it's made my gigs ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE easier than they ever were... great tone, not too boomy (so, it doesn't fight other things on stage... experiment with the EQ!), and it's a 1-hand carry... biggest bonus (for me) is that it's a vertical 2x10 stack. It's light, POWERFUL and has handled gigs very easily! If it's any reference at all, it's almost identical to a Little Mark III couple with a 102p. I just happen to have another Traveler 102p that I vertically stack... I never need that much volume, but the headroom is always awesome to have. Additionally, a little less stress on the speakers, and it's even 'closer' to my ears as a stack. Just like the LMIII, it makes the head go 500 watts at 4 ohms. On its own, it's 300 watts at 8 ohms (and on its own, it's definitely still awesome for a moderately sized club venue for a cover band situation (rock, pop, hip-hop, soul...). I speak as an owner of various amp configurations from other manufacturers as well... lots of great gear out there, but man, this combo really hits home runs with me (OH, and this one's rear ported). Cheers, you guys!
     
  4. I am most interested in hearing from people that have actually played or at least heard both of these cabs and have real-world experience with both cabs in order to aid in making a decision on which one to buy.
    Thank you!
