Whats UG's generall opinion on Markbass vs ampeg. This is for heads only. Not cabiets.
#2
Are you asking so you can narrow down or just for the hell of it?
#3
First of all, could have picked two more opposite sounding amplifiers? Also, Markbass is so frighteningly superior to all Ampeg gear it's almost illegal. I checked. Finally, what's the point of this?
#4
just for the hell of it.

Ive heard from some people markbass is way better then ampeg....but ive also heard that ampeg is better. They're two great brands. I just wanted to know what people here thought.

^What Markbass setup do you have? I just got the SA450 and am now waiting on the Traveller 151P. I was in the market for a new amp and when I tried the setup in store, there wasn't much of a question on what to buy
#9
Anymore I'd pick markbass but if you can get an older ampeg Tube Head then that would win. due to my dual feelings on this i did not vote.

It's hardly a bad thread, just someone trying to see the general opinion.

But on topic, I prefer the Ampeg SVT's but really I think that's because I haven't tried many Markbass heads, I may have to try some more of them.

Why? Just.. why? Get something better to do.

Also, isn't price a significant factor in this debate? Or are we assuming that we have endless money and can buy whatever we want? In which case markbass

That is simultaneously brilliant and obscene. I honestly don't know if I despise, or admire you.

Why? First of all it's the rules. Second, these threads always lead to arguments because there is no best it is all opinion, making this thread pointless.

^ all 3 mods have been on since you reported this, none have closed it.

drop the matter.

I'm surprised by how many votes Ampeg has.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Ampeg is like 4 speakers in a square box, theres cheaper lighter easier ways of making a better louder cleaner sound. But we see all our favourite bass players rocking out with them so we buy them or want to.
