  1. I'm considering a Markbass combo. I notice that the newer CMD121P combos have a lovely top loaded leather handle with yellow stitching and MB logo rather than the older uglier and prone to breakage plastic one. However I have never seen a pic of the CMD121H with the newer handle. It would seem a natural improvement to that combo too. Has anyone come across a CMD121H with the newer leather handle? Is it a thing?
  2. Just pedantically saying that there is no Markbass CMD112P. Perhaps you mean the CMD121P - the small 1x12 combo 🙂
  3. I had the ABM 600 EVO-IV head. Kinda wish I'd never sold it. I A/B'd it with a UK-made EVO-II combo that I bought at the same time (and still have) and sound-wise they were almost identical. It was also the first time in a while I had owned a non-Class D amp and yes, you guessed it... the 'heft' was apparent.
  4. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  5. Yeah it must be a AV62 not AV63 as they weren't making the AV63 in 2008 and it doesn't have the clay coloured dots either.
  6. Exactly. I've owned two. I prefer the 62AV.
  7. Both very distinctive basses. I hope they show up and the thieves dealt with properly. I think this was in Doncaster unless I'm mistaken. (EDIT: Oh, as the title says)
  8. Yes, the Stealths are all graphite... neck and body.
  9. Whoever bought the Walkabout got a great amp. I just got mine, one of the last brand new ones and I believe it's one of the best hybrid amps ever made. I'd choose it over many of the current offerings, of which I've owned a few!
  10. Just ordered a blackface Walkabout or else I'd have been on it.
  11. I have one of these. (On closer inspection mine is the earlier EVO model and this is the EVO II is it not.) Wonderful UK-made combo at a great price. GLWTS.
  12. Re: consistant pricing: The dealers need to make money in order to survive. Everything is fine until one of them 'breaks rank' and advertises for a cheaper price and then the others are forced to follow suit. They don't have to speak to each other for this to happen. The margins on equipment is not what it was and bills have to be paid. Factor in returns, warranty repairs, shipping costs etc in addition to existing running costs and that money has to come from somewhere. I know from my own experience that margins can be very poor, especially when someone is determined to be the cheapest on the web. On the other hand there were one or two brands (mentioned in this thread) where margins are very good and deals can be had.
  13. Nearly... but I have never really gelled with a Jazz bass that I have owned. Lovely bass, I'm surprised it hasn't gone. GLWTS.
