I use Fender Bassman series amps for most of my gigs but was looking for a new "backup" class D gig bag amp after having sold off my old ones. I was not going to get two but could not make up my mind between the Markbass Big Bang which I have played and always liked and the Trace Elf which is, lets face it, just the coolest little new item to hit the already over saturated market. So being the indecisive gear ho I am ... I ordered both. The Markbass will be here next week and the Trace in October so I will have some quality time with each when they arrive. These guys will also serve as my small gig amp going through either an Aggy DB2110 or an EA 110 cab.
