Looks like the Bamp stays where it is. Think I need to try it through Berg cabs as well, just none around my neck of the woods.:thumbup:
If you come south there's a few in Brisbane - I have a CN212 and I'm fairly sure there's a few forumites around with an NV610 or two.

Thanks Jimmy,
Still indecisive. Found some positive reviews on the M900 from Bass Centre customers & talkbass, got the gas pumping again.
Cheers

If you are looking for some lower mid heft as your primary sound, and don't really need the wide range of tones covered by the DG, the Mesa Subway is a very nice option. Thick and full with a responsive EQ, but a little limited in what else it does in comparison.
I think subway 800+ for me then :/

So does anybody have Darkglass M900 they're looking to move on?

A b|amp for sale? Should we start making offers now? :)

I spent a lot f time going back and forth on amps including the m900 but my primary now is the more traditional Glockenklang blue soul.
Start the offers! FS/FT ad up in the classifieds now.

I’ve found that the DG clean provides the same basic start platform as the B Amp, and doesn’t colour the effects at all. The BAmp has the edge with the cab profiling getting the baseline EQ in placthe quickly, but the DG covers a much wider range of ground. And stacking dirt Pedals into the M900 on low gain B3K settings is breathtakingly good.

Darkglass is like the OG sansamp, if you don't like the baked in tone you should probably get something for versatile.
Originally this was where all the people I've sold/gotten gear from that went well, but I haven't met a bad person yet :D

Thanks to giggawazza for the Bongo.
