maybe they werent twiddling with the knobs but having a whiff of the Mullard EL84's to see if they were up to optimum gigging temprature before wading into the first intro. But then only true pro's would do that, your 2 sound like a pair of Dempsey and Makepeace characters, all hair do's makeup and Fila tracksuits.

Nah, they were on Peaveys Shocked Embarassed No wonder they spent a lot of time trying to get the tone right Smile

Thanks Lee/Bass, I'll have a look at the amps suggested as soon as I'm in the market for one, I must confess I've never played bass through a valve amp Embarassed but I'll definately check them out, thanks again,

Tim.

Good idea to bump as it jogged me into looking. Nice review. All Markbass gear, including the Micro, was much in evidence at all the BassDayUK meets I've attended. Fab stuff, and I was smitten with the littl'un but the RRP means that my sprog would have to take his new interest very seriously for me to cough. Not tried the Ampeg, but that looks a bargain.

Noo...bad idea to bump as it appears that in 7 years I haven't made a decision! Which I haven't, but that's mainly be for financial reasons lol
