Well, I went into my local GC today expecting to pick up an Ernie Ball that had been hanging around for a while. As i turned the corner to the bass section I noticed they had in a few Markbass amps. Thanks to this forum I couldn't resist the temptation towards them. I plugged into the LMII and I was blown away. I grabbed the Bongo I had been looking at and played my heart out. For the first time, I fell in love with an inanimate object. The amp was the clearest, most beautiful sounding I had ever heard. Needless to say I walked out $600 poorer and happier than i ever thought something like this could make me. I got home to try out all of my old basses through it and they all sound at least $1000 better. The amp sounds like something that I would have to pay at least $1500 for. I just wanted to thank all the people on here hyping the Markbass line.. without your words I never would have tried those little orange amps.
