Markbass 115 cab differences?
Hey all. I've got a Markbass tube 800, F1, and a traveler 102p cabinet(8ohm)
I'm looking to add a 15 cab to go along with that. from the heads I typically use the F1 as practice and Tube 800 for gigs. But to go along with my cab, I'm not sure. The ones I'm seeing are
New York 151
I like the idea of the Club, but I think that may be lowest on my list.
Reaction would say the Traveler since it's the match, but the Standard looks nice too. With the horn and all it'd be a nice stand alone for anytime I wanted to change it up and still have a little high end yes?
Taking all opinions, experiences, thoughts.
I've only tried the Traveler 151P. I have two of them along with a Little Mark III head. I believe they do well enough on the lows, and they have a mid thing going on (that is they are more middy than my 121H combo's cab, seems like---I think?). Anyway, they are quite resilient and can take plenty of volume, especially when run as a pair at 500w. I usually only use just one, though, for most gigs. But, I do use them as a pair fairly often as well. I can't say much for the piezo tweeter, but I'm not really putting out enough highs, seeing that I'm running flats and going for a more old school sound (from a Markbass? I know, I know...but it'll do it).
If I had it to do over again, I'd pick two of the New York Randy Jackson cabs. Nothing but great reviews on that model. I bet the Standard HR would kick the most butt, though, if you wouldn't mind hauling it.
I thought my 151Ps weighed 37.3 lbs. at first. That was the listed weight. Come to find out they weigh more. When I kept noticing it on my home scale I contacted Peter Murray, who in turn contacted the company in Italy, and was told it was a mistake left over from when they redesigned the cab in 2007. The weight figure didn't get changed. So, now it reads 45.75 lbs., which is more than I actually wanted.
Hard to find reviews on the Club stuff, at least it was for me. I'd like to try one.
GASing for a Barefaced stack now.
Thanks a ton. Yea the Randy Jackson has my eye too. I'm mainly considering this in addition to my 102p cab so the others are more attractive to me as a stack...but the Randy looks like something I'd condider to switch to for some of my smaller gigs vs the 102p
You might be happy with two 102P cabs. If it were me I'd plan on identical cabs instead of mixed ones. Two RJ cabs would be awesome, I bet.
Two RJ's, sounds good to me...:bassist:
I had been searching local GC stores for a 151RJ cabinet to try out. Musician's Friend has been out of them for a while and the site says that they expect to begin shipping February 7th. I found one yesterday at a GC and, with a 15% off coupon, my cost was just under $600. It came home with me.
Mated to the Mark Bass TTE500 amp, I really like the sound with my P-Bass. I have not had a chance to hear any of the other Mark Bass 15" cabs but can vouch for the 151RJ as sounding far better than one would expect for such a lightweight and relatively inexpensive cabinet. I have an SVT 7Pro amp and an AE iAmp 500 that I will try with this new cabinet. If heavy cabinets are a problem, this one certainly can fit the needs of most bassists quite well. There are enough highs for slappers and enough growl and low end punch for fingerstyle players.
