    hi all
    last saturday i was by my dealer.
    they got new amps called "markbass".
    i tried one and it sounds really good for me...
    does somebody of you got such an amp?? i think the price is OK... i just wan't some references

    i played on a "S450" head with a "standard 104H" cabinet, both by markbass.
    theyr website is www.markbass.it (from italy..)

    i'm sorry about my english, i'm from switzerland, so forgive, please... ;)

    Hi,
    Markbass is an italian amplifier.
    They are very trendy now,here in Italy;they have plenty in the shops.

    I suppose it's made by the same guys who builted Parsek amps,and Audiophile MusicMan amps.

    They are very,very,very light-weighting(for example:2x10 cab is only 13 kg),and have very good prices(at least here in Italy).

    I've never tryed an head;
    But I've tryed their 4x10 many times:it's very powerfull,and precise even at very high volumes.
    It has very deep and warm finger-style tone;although I didn't like it:it wasn't modern sounding.Not good for the slap.Too much dark sounding and with slow attack.
    Anyway,I know many guys who are very happy with this stuff.
    I hope it helps.

    Hi Amoilbasso

    thank you for your answer.
    i couldn't test them on hi load, but it sounded good for slapping on low load (the volume was low, I was in front of the box-> but every amp sounds good if you are in front of... ;))

    so i think it is not the right one for me. i don't like slow attack-times.

    but in the box I played were 4 x 10" speakers built-in.
    they could have high attack...

    i'm going to check others....

    i tried their heads and their combo and falled in love with the towercombo.

    great sound both modern and old style.

    it's on my wishlist!
