Vermona Mono Lancet VS MFB Synth II

Hi, i'm looking for a new mono synth, i produce electronic music (especially house!) and i wuold make big and fat bass. I have a juno 106 for chord and pad... i think that vermona is better builded than mfb and maybe it's more clean a precise, but MFB has more features and controls!
I can not decide! can you suggest me??

PS: I also have a MFB 522 and i love it, but i know that it is "rough" and imprecise, and maybe in a drum machine it's good, but i don't know in a synth!

I love the vermona sound personally.
Which MBF unit are you considering?
Kraftzerg looks great and I've screen it used really nicely recently. But in the smaller unit the Microzwerg also looks great.

Is it for playing live or recordings/studio?

Have you got access to the units for a test?

I had a synth II - sounds great with a good beefy low end, but can be difficult to integrate into a setup, and is a bitch to keep in tune. I would say it's a good experimental sample source - the onboard step sequencer is limited but effective. Perfect for drones actually.

Never heard the lancet, but would like to.

I thought the mbf synth2 was not in production??!
Id back the sequencer unit if it's an option. But that's more so for playability and performance perhaps it's not a heavy weight for you in your selection.
If is pure simplicity and great tone grab the vermona, I don't think you could go wrong with it.

I think that i'll take the vermona with the modular expansion and if i want the mfb suond i can take some mfb module and integrate them with the vermona.
I think that it's the best solution!

If you're suggesting expanding the vermona to begin with, than you could also go for the mono lancet in combination with the vermona retroverb. The retroverb includes an excellent reverb - but more importantly a multimode vermona filter. So this will give you the vermona sound with more flexibility. And if you can swing it - than even go for the per4mer mkii.

been using mono lancet for a year now, and it's great sounding synth! you can also expand it with modular dock later on
