I am going to be doing some recording with my "light rock" band. Typically I like to blend DI from my head and a little bit of cab (25-50% depending). I want to use my Mesa D180 but may use the 400 since the DI on that one is more usable (the D180 DI is super hot! Master runs around 10 on that for the clean tone, so u can imagine).
I noticed a Markbass 4x10 cab in the studio- it's my buddies.
Markbass cabs are basically voiced like Ampeg cabs right? Low mids bump? My Mesa PH 4x10 is probably a dash aggressive and open on the lows for this band. Plus I hate lugging it!
Any quick thoughts on the tone of the Markbass 4x10? I am not sure of the exact model but it's probably 3+ years old. It looks like this- no XLT style ports.
The cab tone isnt ultra critical for me (may not end up using it in the mix) but I just like to be meticulous about the details. If it's a little rounder and less aggressive than the PH and doesnt have the SWR no-low-mids, I think I'll save myself the 100 lb PH 410 journey.
