The thing that forced me to start another Markbass thread is the general disagreement about the qualities of MB cabs. In fact there is a sort of "black hole" between two radically opposite positions. The specialized press, including the various magazines coming from every part of the world, acclaiming MB cabs as one of the best builded and sounding stuff available, and a general good match of MB amps (easy to predict...). On the other site there are forum rumors and TB general trend to under-rate MB cabs. I find that many bass players out there are using or planning to use a MB head (good reputation) coupled with a Berg or a epifani cab. The majority of these folks don't even consider to give a try to a MB cab, without even contemplating the possibility of a full MB rig. this apparent contradiction to me is not easily explanable. Moreover I have noticed that this kind of apparent non-sense becomes even more strange when we consider the general TB appreciation of Markbass combos, 1x12, 2x10, 1x15, 3x10. These combos are loaded with the very same speakers used for cabs, the same materials, and the general shape and dimensions of the combo cabs are almost the same as the separated cabs. For example, the CMD 102 P combo has the same building and contructing features than the STD 102 HF cab, except for the tweeter, more high-quality on the cab. Same thing when comparing the CMD 121 H combo and cab, the CMD 151 P and corresponding cab and so on...my dubt is that at TB could be a sort of favourable general trend and disposition toward MB amps and the very same, but opposite thing when considering MB cabs. I beg your perdon in advance for my english, I don't know how to explain my thoughts in a more polite or pleasant way, but I think that the concept is clear: I feel the need of neutral, non-fashion, sincere opinions that can put light on this problem. Please give your contribution. Please also don't defend your purchase only because it has been truly expensive,or any other non valuable opinion.
