I'm sure this stuff has been talked about, but I'm short on time as one of these amps has come up for sale in my area. Is there a down/up side to the MK1? This is the original config correct? Just trying to get some info before I take the plunge. Thanks in advance.

Go for it!

I cant live without external bias points.

Peter uses bigger transformers now if im correct, creating better headroom on the clean channel.
Well im using active emg's now in my main guitar and my clean is......clean!

No reason to go for the MK2.

Great amps. My MKI Herbert was #1 amp for a long time. Do it.

The KRS ARES I picked up here a while back reminds me of the Herbert quite a bit only its tighter and brighter in the mids. Doesn't have the same low end though; don't know if anything produces those gnarly sub-frequencies like the Herbert does.
