Hello all,

I know the bass forums are swamped with questions such as these, but i'm in a situation where I could purchase a Markbass F1 500w head and two SWR Workingman Cabinets (a 2x12 and 4x10). Now, as a bass player who has neglected to purchase a nice amp for years, this looks spectacular to me.

Before I take the plunge, is this package viable? Will it sound perty with the 4ohms deal? I don't have a lot of experience with heads/cabinets because i've played combo amps for all of my career. Any words of advice, criticism, or insult?

Thanks again for the help, or the non-help, in advance.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

Again, sorry for the ignorance into wattage and all that, but since the head is 300w at 8ohms, and 500w at 4 ohms, and the cabinets both have 400w RMS, the wattage is split? It can run with no problems, right?

yep. You could use either single cab for a small gig and both cabs for a larger gig if you chose to, it would be fine.

Best part? He's selling everything for $850, and throwing in an Ibanez Gio (unknown which kind) for free as well. Are these basses good at all, haha?

They're not bad basses, but they're more or less the Squier Affinitys of Ibanez if that gives you a better idea.

And damn you that's an incredible price.

Get it now, or I will. Nah, really though. I really dig the Markbass stuff...and swr's look sexy. Not to mention, they're really clean amps. Not much color, just pure headroom.
