Best Amp I ever owned!

By

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

Seriously, if you're thinking about this Combo 15, don't wait! Man, everyone in your band is going to love the sound. My Ampeg went out (still got the Speaker Cabinet) so I decided to spend the extra money and I havent regretted it yet. My band loves It! The VLE Button makes it better than any other amp I've owned. I am also thinking of the 2x8 rig for my Upright Bass.

WHOA!!

By 

from Boston, Ma.

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

Thanks Markbass!! Let me start by saying WHOA! Got this the other day and had my first practice with it and it blew us away. I was asked to turn down for being to loud. We are a 4 piece cover/orig band, with 2 guitars drums and me. I have a 410 cab w 500 watt ampeg head thats seen better days, and this little, lightweight, 115 blows it out of the water. Not only is the sound fantastic, with a few adjustments you can get a classic smooth bass sound and feel. The best part is I can carry it in one hand and my bass in the other, no more 2 people to carry just my cab! And if I need more, I just plug into my 410 and BOOM! Check out Markbass people, you won't be disappointed! I'm not!

massive sound - little package

By 

from Seekonk MA

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

I've had just about every serious bass amp out there from a real B15 PortaFlex a Kustom (tuck & roll) 200, an Acoustic 371 Randalls , Traynors, Yorks and Bassmans. Now I can save my back and still get heard! I recently played a fusion gig with 9 piece drums, percussionist, guitar through a large Line6, piano and sax blowin' thru the 600W PA. Someone in the back asked if I was taxing the the PA with my bass. Answer? "what PA?" I'm just going thru my MarkBass mini 15. Serious kick per pound!

Incredible!

By 

from The Hamptons, NY

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

This amp is amazing! It is a relatively small cube and very, very powerful! It uses an unconventional lightweight speaker which makes it very light and easy to carry. It also has a small tweeter mounted next to the main 12" speaker for excellent added high frequency clarity. Many sound adjustment features on this baby as well to shape the sound to your particular need. I honestly don't know how they did it but IT IS VERY, VERY, VERY POWERFUL! I tried all the bass amps this size at Guitar Center and this by far blew them all away! If you're looking for compact size with TONS OF POWER then this is a must buy. It is definitely more expensive then the others but if you have the cash it is well worth it and you will love this amp. I had a GK before this one which I thought was powerful but this one makes the GK sound like a clock radio. Try it out at GC you will love it!

Best Bass Amp I've Ever Had!

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

My partner in the Hillbilly Hellcats purchased the 12" Markbass model after a recommendation by a standup bass Jazz player. I tried it out and also we have used it for "fly-in" tours. The 12" model weighs 21 pounds and is not considered overweight or oversize luggage. I decided to try out the 15" model and A/B'd the two. I discovered that the 15" model was even better, and it still only weighs 41 lbs. (Still Flyable). I bought the 15" model and it sounds great with all of my standup slap basses (3). Plenty of power and sounds very good with all dials (EQ) at 12 o'clock. I believe that because these amps are made in Italy, and because there is more interest in standup bass in Europe that these amps are perfect for Jazz, Rockabilly slap and Roots Rock styles. I also have a 1969 Ampeg all tube SVT and a late 1990's SWR that I use with 2 4x10 Ampeg speaker cabs. I am convinced that the 15" Markbass sounds just as good if not better. No more having to get help from the drummer or a fan to carry my 15" Markbass amp in the club!

Versatile, Loud, and Fits in the Trunk

By 

from Texas

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

I coveted this amp for a long time before pulling the trigger. My only regret is that I waited so long. It's plenty of volume for most settings and where I might need more volume there's a built-in line out. There's plenty of punch when I need it and it can get really warm, too. I can't get over the size! The Jeff Berlin is a little cheaper and the controls are little more accessible on the front, but I'm glad I went with the smaller size of this one.

Excellent Amp!

By 

from Manahawkin, NJ

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

After being on the internet for over 3 hours searching for an amp that was ligtweight with a lot of power, we ordered the Markbass Mini.It has turned out to be an excellent choice! The band sounds even better because the bass comes through more powerful than before.Definitely get your hands on one if you can!
