Have you tried one yet? I've always found the digital power-amped MarkBass stuff to sound a bit sterile and lifeless.

Given that this is the Bass Forum, I'm amazed nobody has asked for alcohol

I must agree...the Markbass stuff is light, and so is the sound...thin, too.

Hasn't been a good bass amp since Acoustic research went under, the new company with the $5K 360 might have a good amp. but where are they to TRY?

I'd love to get a six string bass... any, as long as it has some semblace of quality (and narrow string spacing), i'd be happy!

But realistically i can expect a set of strings.

Maybe next year...

Probably just some strings and maybe a cable and a strap as well. Perhaps someday I'll convince my family to buy me a Warwick.

Those MarkBasses are so cute. I can throw it in my backpack or leave it in my car and I'll always be ready. It sounded fine with my 215 with EVM15L and EVM15B.

That's why I love mine. On top of my 2x10 its a great little apartment amp, but if I want to jam I can slip it in a backpack, grab my bass and go. Just plop it on another cab and its good to go.

Bass-Santa really should just drop $200 or so down my chimney so I can start a project.

As for what I want, bass wise I just want this nice little Gallien Kruger combo amp. 200 watts with a 15inch speaker, MMB15 or some model name like that. Would be pretty nice for a first bass amp.

I also want a drum set. Having hard time deciding between acoustic and electric. but literally those 2 things, and Im gooood.

Those are California VM's, Sandberg's price list puts the base price at 1338 Euros (and that's for a 4 string before any options). Chicago Music Exchange is a US dealer and has a 5 string VM listed for $2245.

I think you'll have to sell a kidney for one of those. And I hear the waiting period is hell.
