    Trying to decide between the 2. For home practice and small venues. Cheers.

    If you need just minimal eq, go for the Nano. If you want the extended eq of the Littlemark series, go for the 250.

    Thanks! Would you say the quality is the same?

    For the price of one of those you could probably purchase a used Little Mark III. That would give you the extended eq and additional power if needed.

    Thanks. For now, one of the other two will do. Cheers.

    I believe Markbass products to be solidly made. I previously owned a LMIII and it never failed me. I own the 250 now and it is solid and loud.

    I can't comment on the 250, but my Nano has held up very impressively when subbing for my usual LMT800.
    Even powering an 8x10 cab. I was rather shocked.

    Went with the 250, to pair it with the New York 121 cab. Very happy. Thanks to everybody for the responses.

    By the way, what do I have to do when plugging my bass in active mode to the head? Lower the gain?
    Cheers

    Not necessarily. Not all active basses are louder than passive basses. Adjust the gain until you see the clip light then back it down until the clip light doesn't flash. Then adjust your volume accordingly.
