While searching for a versatile, gig worthy bass combo I happened upon a store that carried an array of options from Markbass. There is a lot of hype in the bass world about Markbass amps so I was eager to give them a try. Playing a Standard P Bass, I tried out the Alain Caron 1×12 Combo, the Jeff Berlin 1×15 Combo and the CMD 102P 2×10 Combo. Originally I had my sights set on the Jeff Berlin model, but after putting all three combos through their paces I ended up liking the CMD 102P 2×10 the best. All three are great sounding amps, in fact the Jeff Berlin & 102P have he same head, but there was just something about the 2×10 that spoke to me.
