    Currently playing through a GK MB210 combo and was wondering if anyone can give personal experience if they play or have played an XL2 through another amp/combo. I love the gk but something is telling me it's not the best match for my Steinberger XL2. Anything I should try before bringing the bass out to the store to experiment? Thanks!!

    I have heard good things about the Markbass amps but seems way out of my price range

    I've played mine through Ampeg, GK, Acoustic, Mesa, Aguilar, EBS, and doubtless a few others. Sounded great through all of them, frankly, though I liked EBS the most and Acoustic the least. But that's just me.

    Take your 'berger to a decent music store and try some amps for yourself!

    Old Steinies sound good through pretty much anything but I've especially liked them in Ampegs.
