    I'm in the market for a micro amp. I've narrowed it down to the Mark Bass II, III, or an F1 and on the flip side a Eden WTX550. I understand that alot of it is personal preference but if someone who has tried these could give me an honest comparison of their experience with any of these and the pros and cons it would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I've no experience with either amps but KJUNG has a bunch of youtube clips with A/Bing MB with other simi amps and the MB's sounded pretty good.

    Although both rated at 500 watts into 4 Ohms, the Markbass packs more wallop IME. I had a WTX 500 that clipped easily and although the features were great, the sound was meh. YMMV.

    The Markbass heads do pack a PUNCH in the volume in the department and I will agree the WT 550 runs out of steam WAYYYY too fast. If you use the Eden head, I suggest turning the low frequencies below 80hz down as a default setting.

    I thought the WT550 sounded great though, but much better though with a 4 ohm load or at least more speaker cabs.

    If you like the Markbass stuff already, I suggest going this route right away. There is very little reason to not go for Markbass unless you hate the tone produced by the heads (like I do! :D)

    perhaps it boils down to ease of use and construction.

    Many mb products have their pots attached to the circuitboards...or did.

    I Like the filters but you may prefer more traditional controlsthan markbass
