    Has anyone tried these amps out side by side?
    I'm thinking of using it with mostly Epifani boxes.

    Ouch babe! Listen..... if I had any talent at all, I wouldn't
    have to worry so much about gear. But on the other hand,
    I have to buy something.

    Y'know..... I could be wrong, but the Little MarkII sounds
    like it could be very similar to the Focus. Hows the low
    end on these amps?...... Hey wait, what happend to my
    Eden, GK thread? You guys are crafty, very crafty.

    I've owned both, but haven't had them side by side. I found the TF to be only slightly better in tone, but the TF runs out of gas quicker at 8 ohms than the GK did. With the GK being almost half the price it's hard not to recommend it over the TF.

    I played the Little Mark before the new version. It was dry, quick and very natural like the AI but with more low end. Very impressive little amps.

    The Markbass is much more powerful than the Focus and has a punchier tighter low end.

    Does anyone think that the Little Mark II could be in the same league with the Thunderfunk?
    (excuse me for using this thread, but the last thing we need imo is another "Thunderfunk vs X" thread. just looking for a quick answer)
