I’m (hopefully) about to join my first small local band, and I’m currently amp-less (using a Fender Mustang Micro headphone amp). I don’t really know what sort of rehearsal rooms and eventually hopefully gig venues I’ll be playing in, so I’m thinking go loud enough not to need to replace the amp before long.
There’s a used Markbass Ninja 102-500 that looks in good condition on Facebook Marketplace near me for exactly the same price as a new Fender Rumble 500 at my local music shop (580 GBP). Which would you say would suit me better? Anything I should look or listen for in particular if I go and check out the Markbass? Any other suitable options for me in that price bracket?
