I see Markbass as producer of high-end bass gear with their well-reviewed amplifications and faithful users. I have played a few, quite large gigs with a 2x12 and the Little Mark III top, and I must say it's really loud and full of punch- no need for monitor. I'm not an owner myself, but considering buying a similar rig, due to its loudness, sound and light weight. However, my question is- “Is Markbass a respected brand in rock music?” I see very few in the music industry, and especially in the rock and metal genre. Why is that?
