PbassPod's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Failure to twitter, service non existent!"

Markbass CMD 102P
Characteristics are known, transistor amp, 300w / 8 ohms for about 20 kg, two 10-inch speakers. Power to weight ratio very attractive!


Simple and effective equalization, manual not very detailed and exclusively in English. But now, the first day that I receive, my bass is not even plugged on, I turn it on, the fan starts up, HP and snap ... and a great blast from the twitter!
I say, no bowl, factory default, I their referrals. No news for 1 ½ months. Then I get an email like what my product is waiting for me at the store, I go home with, I plug and ... Exactly the same! It's good from the firm whose slogan is "Bass at its Best!"
Yet I have not plugged my bass, not plugged my stuff, I tried to change the outlet, always the same ...


Well I still tried to connect my bass over to see what was in the belly. I must admit that the equalizer is very effective, both VPE and VPF knobs allow a wide variety of sound, it is slap, fingers or a pick. But good for the price I was expecting a perfect amp.


I turned to Markbass because I played several occasion on several of their products and you would understand I am very disappointed. The disappointment is all the greater because I saved a whole year to pay me and I waited with great anticipation.

Markbass CMD 102P
Bass combo transistor.
280W into 8 ohms (thus with the original cabinet)
450W into 4 ohms (if we add an 8 ohm speaker)
HP 400 watt bass reflex ... Really big infra bass.
HP Output jack and speak it. Sorites XLR ... all it takes.
Very large power.
20 Kg


Setup could not be more simple. Put all knob equalization in neutral and play. The key is to have a good bass for this amp transcribed what comes out of the jack. You can not cheat ... Manual in English even though the amp is Italian.


Perfect for all styles ... Funk for me.
My bass is an Alembic with a very good sound but I also tried it with a Jazz bass ... I WANT A result JAZZ BASS.


What I like most was the sound and weight. 20 kg 280W for real ... I like the look but not the opinion of everyone (my ex guitarist).
The finish is not too bad no more ... a few drips of glue if you look in the vents (but I Motes). Amp handmade in Italy ... Was almost an amp maker
This is not seen in the pictures he has a form of return (cutaway) and it is tilting. Super convenient!
If I have one criticism: the tweeter can be a blast.

For me good value for money power to weight, even if one is expensive ... But the amp has high-end so you have to compare it with the ampeg, SWR, Eden ... This choice I would do without hesitation.

Grenouillère's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" "Yes !!"... But NO!"

Markbass CMD 102P
Characteristics are known (see below avir ...)
This is a combo of 19/20 kgs of 300 W / 8 ohms and 500 W into 4 ohms.
It is equipped with two 10 HP. "Transistor amplifier. There are settings, but I will come back later! It seems at full connection.


For configuration, it is more plug and play. Manual: ever had. Tested beef only. It is for this similar to lots of other combos bass!

Does it get good sound? So it's hard to say! But after I talk!


So I tried it for two hours as part of a "beef" tested with a jazz bass and a G & L US (active).

My verdict was clear: "What the hell ??!!". In fact two back Hauris before. Before I had an idea of ​​Markbass gear as very good (expensive too) but the quality and weight / power ratio unbeatable. And in a beef, bassist had this combo. I thought: "Cool, I'll see what it's worth".

After two hours, I quickly became disenchanted! Sound course "Péchu" (we feel that there is power behind ...). But that's it! With my jazz or a G & L had its "soft", not defined, very rough ... It seemed that there was a boom ... boom bcp but no definition of mids and highs! I first started with the G & L bass that was the guy: the active electronics of its low going pretty good. While I thought the sound was a little rough or bcp. Fan and his own set, I thought it must have its régages? And at a time I plug my JB! And knowing my bass, I did not recognize her! A dull sound, totally undefined! It seemed they had put in my bass subwoofer (sub) asset! Very deaf ... Yet with 2 X 10 "... so I tried to solve the equation ... and even lowering the bass, treble increasing ... No way! Always this impression of" draft "sound. ..

Filters?! Well I must say (it personal) the sound is not processed. It looks like the color COUTOUR and other amps. So nothing special!

I admit that sounds like "powerful" low ... But set! While there was really this feeling of something heavy, indigestible ...** I say after the fact, which must be an active bass with a large output level to have really good sound ... But with a low passive: Ouch!


I have tested it once! Well I would not buy Markbass (some have to say I'm crazy ??!!). No! I do not like it at all ... For info, or try Genz Benz Aguilar! And after we'll talk!

The pros: weight (to 500 w and bluffing is very nice to have a combo of 19 kgs). / Colour: I confess that this yellow / black is a very nice effect ... While it looks very solid and well finished.

The -: The sound (I do not consider that this combo, having a box 12 "from the same brand that I loved ...) which seems really missed something in my taste! / The lack of definition (bis )! / The price (when the guy told me he had bought € 1300!) / Try adding a box to see if it comes out a sound "correct".

No offense to the fans ... About this product (I said that I tested!) I find it overpriced! I think the brand plays on side "with all our equipment is perfect." No, I do not believe in perfection! Markbass is probably very good product, but there! Manufacturing air-serious, high quality materials ... But for the rest! Sound "insculpta" VLE and VLF effects that serve little point I think. In short, a product for those who can afford it and want to say "I have the Markbass guys !"... A bit like the driver that says "I guys I have a Porsche".

I would not buy it, and of course I recommend trying other brands: Genz Benz, Trace Elliot, Aguilar.

Tibo1987's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Markbass CMD 102P
Transistor amplifier
280 W into 8 Ohms
500 W into 4 Ohms (with a REALLY sends a 2X15 timber)
Connectivity between TRS complte between XLR jack effects loop, tuner out, XLR DI out (Gnial) 2 HP a normal Jack, and Jack / Speakon that accepts two conections.
Gain between Del Rglages with Clip, equalo bass mid bass, mid high, high, two filters markbass (1 that cuts the treble and one that cuts mdium and boost the high and low ex: Slap her)
No deffets.

We have an AIM adjustable effects loop.
We have an AIM rglage on the tweeter. bzz that just a low volume dailleurs.

We love the XLR DI output with the sound that kills. With a you become the best friend of sound engineers concert halls! : D: D
We love the 20 pounds and the real power comes out of two small 10 inches.


Simple configuration, but we can tweak what's good is that, leaving everything flat on adjacent sound crazy. I use it with a Jazzbass Marcus Miller, I cut a little treble to bass and Lampl, a lightweight on low boost and mdium hop sounds.

Better a good bass for this amp, bass crap has made a terrible.

Its not very hot I must admit, but hey I was looking for a very funk and got exactly what I wanted. Note that I never reached my sound to another amp and I tried the Fender, Ampeg, Gallien Kruger, trace elliot, Epiphany, etc ...

I have not tried eden / nemesis so I could not compare. Otherwise this little combo jpense overshadows has many config in the competition. Report Qualit Price was very good although still quite expensive. Try doccaz Toper (aa lair fawn all pretty indestructible as long as it takes a little care)


Funk: Gnial

Rock: All right, can be lacking a bit of vintage and filthy in her (if you like the ampeg sound, go your way)

Dub reggae: Should do well even if I am not too adept.

I prcise again it is the only amp or I could get my sound (which made me buy it)


I would do the purchase, of course! I got a 850 euros OCCAZ in state nickel. I play with from four months. He saw a dozen concerts, many rpeter, never flinched. Nothing to report since no portard that crackles, the carpet is much dust, transport conditions not always top ... etc. Good investment.

20 pound, ultra portable, very powerful, reliable, 200% guaranteed to have the sound RPET, in concert, and at home if one has comprhensifs neighbors.

Excellent price to quality ratio OCCAZ, only nine very good; D
I put 9 because if it had GPS and grill bread would best t:
No adjustable tweeter (VLE but the filter is a bit the same job that attnuation tweeter)
Not adjustable effects loop (but it's rare I must admit)
