I don't know if you guys have heard much about Markbass but all I can say is WOW!!!!!
Markbass is made in Italy, very light weight and can handle anything you throw at it.
I’ve been using the 102p combo on it's own at gig's that in the past I would have used GK 6x10.
It has no problem with the low B at all.
I just got the other 2x10 cab with horn for the really big gigs but I don’t I’ll need to often as the combo does a great job on it’s own.
-Markbass 102p 2x10 combo with piezo tweeter.
The head is rated 300w @ 8ohm and 500w @ 4ohm
The speaker cab is 400w.
-Markbass standard HF, 2x10 with horn, 400w cab.
Only one thing I don't like, no mute button.
Have a look.

Yeah we've got Markbass over

Yeah we've got Markbass over here and I have seen a few at the local shops. Nice tones and good power. The price here is a little less 5000AUD = 4700USD so pretty close.

Reviews need approval and that is why it did not show before. Fixed it.

If you get to the West side of the US let me know but you should have a great time on the East as well.

Hey man, My wife an I just

Hey man,

My wife an I just got back from NY, such a cool place!

I met the boys down at the Fodera and spent heaps of time looking around lots of other
music shops. I didn't find my perfect bass yet though.

Sorry I didn't make it to the west but the west is closer to Aus so I'm sure I'll make it
there sometime soon.

I've hear Markbass gear.

I've heard Markbass gear. It's about the best sounding gear of all. Glad you're happy with yours Jaymie. So how's things with you these days? Got any time to record a BassIAB track? I'd sure love to hear it if you do.

Hey Paul, going well

Hey Paul,

going well man!

I'm still lovin that Markbass rig, I still think that SWR has the best sounding amps but
for makeing the job eas you can't go past Markbass, so light with a big sound.

How's things with you Paul?

Doing good thanks Jaymie.

Doing good thanks Jaymie. Busy at work but that's nothing new. Still struggling to get anything resembling music out of my bass but that's nothing new either. lol

I agree

I agree Jaymie. I have a Markbass 210 combo and extension cab. Sweet sound, that can hang with top notch guitar rigs.
