Heard a Markbass 102P combo...
A guy brought one in last night at the show just for himself. I have heard many reviews and comments for this combo, but never played one or heard one live. Nice, it was. Interestingly, this is a room I'm used to playing my Little mark III cab and one or two 151P cabs in, so, other than the different bass the guy was playing I could kinda compare the two rigs. Of course, I don't know what his settings were on the amp, but if he's like most Markbass players I'll bet he was nearly set neutral with very little filtering.
Anyway, the point is, I just wanted to say that it had a tighter sound with less low lows than what I've been hearing when other guys have played through my 151P with (supposedly) similar settings. I must say it's about exactly what I expected. As far as the quality of sound it was excellent. Many speak of the "Markbass tone," but to me it was just a good all-round bass tone. The venue is mid-sized (maybe 75-100 souls), and the volume level was moderate. The amp did just fine to handle the room. It looked so small up there, and that made it a bit surprising that it filled the room so well.
So, to those of you playing a 102P combo, my hat's off. Nice sounding rig ya got there.
I love my CMD 102P combo and was amazed at how easily it could keep up with a full band, despite its size. Unfortunately it hasn't left the house for a gig since I bought my mini Aguilar TH500/SL112(x2) stack.
I love my cmd 102p, but I use it mainly for practice at home. I play in a loud band and use a tech21 pre with a crown xls1000 into a hartke 410xl for gigs. We're upgrading our pa so I hope to use the markbass exclusively sometime soon. I've used everything from ampeg to gk over the past 30 years and IMHO my markbass has the best sound.
