    Hey dudes, Currently I'm using a SWR SRH combo. I like it and have been using it for about 5 years now. The problem is it weighs 85LBS and is starting to tweak my back eveytime I haul it down from my attic and shuttle back and forth to a gig. I have a line a minty Mark Bass CDM 2x10. It has the same power specs as the SRH but weighs in at 44 LBS. Now thats a significant reduction in weight. My qustion is how do you think these two stack up on the issues of tone and reliability. Like I said the SRH gets high marks in both areas but the weight is killing me and I'm not personally familiar with Mark bass. I do plan to head to a GC with my bass this weekend to try a Mark bass but I still want to know what the general attitudes about these 2 in a head to head situation is.

    lets hear it... :D

    Nevermind, I just settled on a new CMD102. I played it at GC for almost 2 hours and I love the tone. To my ears not so diff from the SRH. Just as I was about to decide whether to buy it ($999) I picked it up to check the weight. WOW! I almost tossed it over my head it was so light. I can literally pick it up to eye level with one hand and hold it there. That was it. SOLD! :hyper: I guess my SRH will hang out at my church (I hate the Hartke they have) until it goes on the market. The Mark Bass is a great amp. I'm very pleased with it (especially my aching back). :D
