    That’s what I am talking about! I get my NY121 on Tuesday. Can’t wait to check out that setup!

    I still have a LittleMark III head (that I pair with some Hartke HX112s), but I truly miss the CMD121P/NY121 mini-stack-of-doom that I had. Not really sure what I was thinking when I sold those two pieces...

    So, get 2 NY121s. The D2s look very interesting!

    The D2 cab does look interesting to me as I'm one of those who have bypassed the crossover and tweeter in my 121P because I didn't care for the piezo tweeter. However, I can't seem to find any first hand reviews/impressions/etc of the new NY121 D2. Anybody have any experience with it?

    I have a 121HR which has the new tweeter and it's so much nicer than the piezo. I'd imagine the 121D2 would sound very similar.

  7. I seem to be the minority; I have no problem with Piezo interfering with me getting tones I want from my CMD 121P. [also no hiss unless putting my ear up to it volume cranked not playing]

    Now I have played mostly some form of Classic Rock [even when it was new:)] Some 80's new wave/90's alt also.

    Most cabs I used over the early years that had a Horn tweeter I either turned it off or maybe at most used
    25-50% max depending on room.

    Also I am not a Slap/Pop player but I can when needed and it sounds fine with CMD 121P actually smoother than with Horn [somewhat hard and harsh] I don't play Tap style or lots of Chords this may be where a tweeter may be important.

    Now to what I wanted to ask:)

    What kind of difference to you hear from NY121[P] AND 121HR? I trust your opinion on this one knowing you are very familiar with Markbass Products

    Well, for me it depends on the bass. With a P Bass the piezo sounds fine. I have a 102P and my P basses sound great through it. By contrast, my Jazz is a little edgy through that cabinet. The 121HR does a great job with both P and J basses. The high end is present but not overbearing and not edgy.
    So, while I like the 102P, I prefer the 121HR and would imagine I'd feel the same about the NY121D2.

    New to the club with this Nano 300. It's connected to an 8 ohm 112 Avatar cab. Tomorrow, the VT Bass pedal will demo with it! :thumbsup:

    Awesome amp! Cool other gear in the pic too, and freaky hangers.

    It's totally worth getting a solid grasp how that interactive passive EQ works. Look up "Tone Stack Calculator" and set it to "Marshall" for a fair visual representation.

    How are you liking the NANO 300?
    I'd love to hear your feedback on tone, power, ease of use etc.

    There’s not much I could add to the reviews on TB. It’s not tone colored, and in the 8 ohm mode with my 112, it works well- though I have not played it out of the house. The Tone Hammer V2 pedal shown in my previous post is paired with it for any tone shaping.

    It fits in the smallest of bags with room to spare.

    I've recently started using a band mate's LMT800 but the master volume pot seems to be stuck in one position. The knob turns, physically, but with no change in volume. Luckily it's turned up, but I'm using Gain 1 as a volume control. Clearly it's not optimal, but LOVE the tone I'm getting out of this thing and I'm considering buying it from him. However, after a few hours of research, I'm a little skeptical. I don't think any repair shops near me will work on it. I'm handy with a soldering iron, but I can't seem to find parts for it. I don't really need the push/pull mute function and my band mate thinks thats how it broke to begin with. Could anyone here point me in the right direction? Has anyone here attempted a similar repair?

    Not sure where you live but there's a repair shop called: UPSCALE MUSIC in Newington, Ct +1 860-667-7747
    They work on MarkBass amps.

    An amp of future legend, sat atop two 4x10 cabs, AND the latest preamp.

    Plus a chair sat upon a chair and a Sandberg Forty-Eight with a ripping color scheme. Looks as much an art project as anything else.

    That, sir, is a heroic dose of MarkBass!

    What’s the egg shaped thing on the pedal board?
