Matéo U-Bass's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" electric sound!"

Markbass Little Mark III
see supplier!
Good manufacturing seems reliable.


The config is simple. we find the usual settings. EQ-4 knobs / gain / master / line out / two effects
The knobs are accurate.


I use to amplify my bass. (Cell + cabinet full circle phil jones piranha c4).
The reproduced sound is very distinctive "mark bass". Low imprecise.
is typed rock and perfect for an electric bass but not top retituer for an acoustic sound. On stage sound engineers through a di upstream because its taken on DI head are unmanageable ... especially in the low Hz
The knobs are accurate!
The two effects are their taf!


I use it for 2 years. I bought primarily for its rappord power / weight.
For my return or small jam is more than enough. I accommodates a sound that I put long enough to find. I tried other models (eg ashdown mag 300h evo; bulkier)
I think it will still accompany me for a while!

Deufos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Disappointed"

Markbass Little Mark III
See the features of the supplier, I would not say better.
The construction quality


Easy to use, with two knobs usual equalization effect more.

Basic Instructions


tested for 6 months with a baffle MarkBass 121H traveler Ibanez BTB670, and Peavy.

I think the sound is colored, not really so obvious, but the more we played with, the more we find that the sound is cardboard. He uen Mark Bass presence that can be enjoyed at the beginning, but it quickly becomes disappointing.
I can say that I had with proper sounds, but nothing transcandant. This is especially the mediums that I did not like.

The two effects are well their taff, easy to implement


Although the fact that I do not really like the sound is a matter of taste, I do not understand the infatuation for these amps ... Everyone praised and I do not understand why. It's okay okay, but for that price, I think you can easily find better.

The pros:
manufacturing quality

The -:
sound cartonisé

Duge's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Little Big Mark!"

Markbass Little Mark III
Everything has already said or written.


Configuration a breeze.
He lacks the foot switch, the input of an mp3 and headphone jack.
Roll on Big Bang seen on the NAMM 2012.
For my part between the head of LMIII without problem in my gig bag.
The DI output (with post / pre and ground lift) is very effective in the studio in PA.


I play blues-rock and fusion.
The advice I would give is to put everything at noon.
The versatile sound obtained is accurate even with instruments of average quality (bass and guitars).
I use it on a Markbass Standard 104hrs and sometimes I Assistant (500w at that time) or substitutes a Warwick 411 Pro.
I push the tweeter back!
The volume never exceeded 5 (outdoors).
Otherwise it is constantly at 9am for rehearsals or cafes.
Now you can have fun with the preamp:
The sound "Pasto" is obtained with two filters at 9am, we push the low mids a bit and voila.
I play with a Fender Jazz Bass Fretless (passive) and with a Sadowsky (mapple neck) in liabilities as assets.
The sound "Marcus" is obtained with the VLE and VPF off at maximum and the medium at 11am.
It's with a Yamaha TRB 5 and P2 piezzos open is close to a guitar with a gloss-art (stereo).
One could say that it is comparable to an Eden without the breath, but not so hot!
For vintage sounds, I'm not an expert nor big fan of "distortion" on the bass.
So this amp does not match what we can get with Ampeg, Hartke Sunn ...


I played with for almost 2 years.
It is a treat for everyone.
Personally I find the power "intolerable" because of the dynamic mind-blowing!

With experience, you do again this choice?

Not only I would do, but I expect the Big Bang.

Ben WDCK's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A little gem"

Markbass Little Mark III
As t is, it's a bass amp head of transistor.
The connectors:
Front: Between line between jack and XLR line.
Rear:-DI output, XLR
Between-and output effects loop.
-1 HP Output Jack / Speakon
-1 HP Output Jack
-1 Output jack for a tuner.
Power 300 Watts into 8 dlivr Hom and 500 W at 4 Hom
-4 Equalizer knobs (Low, Mid Low, Mid High, High)
-2 Knobs for filters (VLE and VPF)
-1 Master knob (HP Output)
-1 Knob line-out (DI)


The configuration is very simple and efficient trs.
the manual is very explicit trs, better use your ear.
The sound is excellent, and this same low volume!
The filters are fulfilling their RLES, we have a palette ranging from the funky bass to the most soft and round with no problem.


I play punk with reggae passages, a Premire seen this head is too punk style to the sounds, but not being like other things I prfre bass less "dirty" as Most bass players of this style ... but reggae is the ultimate!
This gives a range of sounds trs variable, thanks to the filters that are more open, the lower become pure ... and vice versa can be achieved with a clear treble trs trs Submitted.
I use a fender jaguar and in between I put a compressor markbass for the hottest fat lgrement the lamp of the compressor.
I use it with a 2x12 cab MarkBass NY 122 '.


I use it for one month and I fell in love!
I used a Hartke VX before 2515, are deeper but less styl.
What I like most is the purity of sound achieved, not a breath, and a palette of his tight rev.
The tuner out is a plus, to agree not unplug the bass.
I also like its small size only 2.9 Kg with a reserve of power Exceeds largely away from other amp heads heavier and more expensive!
The report qualitprix is ​​unbeatable for me other brands should review all their stratgies!

I would do this election eyes closed!
