Hissy Markbass cmd 102

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by diegom, Apr 16, 2015.

  1. Just got my long-awaited Markbass combo, but it hisses A LOT! Could I have missed this at the store? Does this sound normal?
    No matter what controls I move, the hissing does not change.
    I'd appreciate opinions from fellow owners.

  2. Is it a new unit (defective and return it) or a used unit (will need to be repaired). The Hiss is in the power amp after any preamp control.

  5. Thank you for all the responses.

    B-string and fast slapper, it is a new amp, so back to GC is goes... I had just heard so many comments about the "hissy tweeter" that I wasn't sure if I had missed it when I checked it out at the store.

    Ross, none of the controls make any difference. I will keep your comment in mind when I get the new one and need to tame the tweeter.

    I love this community!
