This is the updated Mk2 version with the 300W tweeter. I had the Mk1 and it never missed a beat (that was completely down to me) in several years of gigging. It effortlessly kept up with a full band and is one of the very few combos that delivers its full 500W main load without needing an extension cab. 

 

IMO still one of the very best combos available.

I had the Combo 121 Lite Mk I, the Combo 121 Lite Mk II and the Super Combo K1 : all three fantastic combos with a preference for the K1 that was not as hissing as the two others when cranked up (and it can become very loud), but is heavier.

 

I sold the 3 of them and now my back is telling me to go back to a lightweight combo... which is what the 121 Lite Mk II is.

Mark - if you can stretch to this I would take the AC 121 Lite, every day of the week, over my CMD 121H (which will only deliver 500W with an extension cab - whereas the AC 121 Lite will manage to deliver its full payload on its own). If you'd still prefer to go for a CMD 121H then I might be obliged to make a trip to West Oxon to relieve this fleabag of his excellent combo to fill the gap you'll have created...😄

Blimey @Hellzero- we do seem to be sharing too much taste in various bits of gear recently. Good job I don't play those weird 6 string thingys that you seem to like and call a "bass guitar" which the rest of us just refer to as "guitars"...😁

Aha !

It is my duty to inform you Al, that some stranger on Farcebook has decided that they want the combo, but not till the 11th Sep.   He offered a deposit to hold it, but 3 days on, he still hasn't sent the money.

 

I'm not going to hold the combo for this bloke without the deposit,  so as far as i'm concerned, it's for sale and not on hold for him.... yet.  If  it works out that you fancy the combo,  its available till he sends me the deposit,  so basically whoever turns up first.  Seem ok ?    :)
