So, I go into Guitar Center to buy a 3u rack, which they did not have, and I spy this tiny MarkBass combo. The Micromark 801. 8" speaker and 45 watts. I just had to try it out, so I grab an AM standard Fender Jazz, and start rocking. It sounded pretty good, and had a surprising amount of volume. I ran the volume up to about3/4, and tried to get it to fart out, but it just sounded pretty good. So I get to thinking... First off, I have no illusions that this tiny rig can handle much or keep up with a drummer, but I do a weekly gig in a hotel lobby that is very quiet. Two acoustic guitars and me. Guitars and singers run thur a tiny pa system, and we play quiet. Currently using a TH350 and an Ampeg SVT210 cab. With gain on 9:00 and master on 9:00 on the TH, I have more than enough volume, and sometimes have to roll the vol down on my bass. Kind of thinking the MM801 would be a cool addition to the stable and would actually get a lot of use at that weekly 3hr gig. Also been rehearsing with a new band that is pretty quiet. Has a drummer, but he is playing brushes. Thinking I might make use of it there as well. Pretty cool little amp.
