    If you caught the live feed from Markbass HQ on facebook, you saw & heard greatness. Stu has a new signature hybrid Markbass amp & 215 cab. Sounds better than any Markbass rig I've ever heard before. Worth your while.

  3. I had seen from his Facebook page that he had moved over to Markbass cabs but I hadn't seen that he had his own signature kit. It looks very good. I saw a post where he had remarked that he was using 15" cabs and was surprised by the tone. Markbass do a really tight and articulate speaker though, nothing like the 15" flop-monsters of days gone by (I have a Markbass Jeff Berlin CMD151P combo, it's seriously impressive).

    I wonder how his new amps would sound with an Urge II...?

    Yeah it's a brand new 2x15 cabinet. You can find the video on facebook. There's horrible latency on it that wasn't there live, but it's a very good recording so you can really hear the amp very well. He's playing his metallic green Warwick signature bass. Sounds better than any Markbass I've ever heard.

    my bass tone can beat up your dad's bass tone.
    that amp is terribly ugly.

    but the uglier the markbass head the better it sounds generally speaking (example: Rocker 500, classic 300, sd1200, f1 and ninja)

    I'm pretty sure Marcus Miller; Stu Hamm, and Jeff Berlin will all be at the MarkBass booth at NAMM in a few days from now.

    This is everything I've ever wanted from a MB. Graphic EQ and a tube pre. A nice simple layout.

    Any idea when this is going to be available to purchase?
