Markbass CMD 102P
300 W transistor amp on 2x10 ", 500 W into 8 ohm speaker Additional
an effects loop send / return
output tuner
DI output
the connection is simple but sufficient
it is actually the Little Mark head in a box 2x10 "


equalization is very effective, the VLE works very well and gives an interesting color to the sounds that you get fast enough.
I did not get manual with since I bought it secondhand but frankly you plug you turn the knobs you play ... it sounds.


I play a bit of everything with this amp, pop prog rock, large rock that spot ... it's an amp that meets the instrument although still plugged in, it is relatively transparent are saying when ... Just as it is more comfortable in the sounds pop / rock / jazz in the very large bourrinage, but with the proper equipment before it does it anyway well (10 strips connected to a multidrive EBS and it sends the block) ...
it is rather "pedal friendly" globally but especially do not return to pre-amp simulation in, it does not.
coupled to a baffle 104 is obtained by HF against a wall of sound foolproof able to knock out any scene! it's quite surprising ...
I play the machine with a music man stingray and an Ibanez ATK legacy japan made ... a treat.


I use the baby, then 4 years and I do not see myself changing at all except perhaps for something with All Tube 8x10 fridge "but intransportable ... so my combo suits me well actually.
the only thing that pissed me off is that the tweeter was a bit too trend buzzer ... I turned without further ado ... and without it we can still send very very good sessions Slap:)

Markbass CMD 102P
Amp transistor.


It's really very easy to use. It is too soon to touch the EQ knobs. Both filters are effective trs. And again ... I do not use hardly any.


I use it with my bass and my squier 5 string. Again: we let the rglage as neutral as possible and is good for me.


I use it for 3 months. The only small BMOL is the breath. Nothing too serious, but ...

Here is an excerpt from a mail or I tell my buddy to CMD102 Seb, we have just two Quatum a Modulus 5, low to which it is referenced in the mail ... the syntax is flawed and mistakes legions, but it's a pretty good snapshot of my combo

vwalà the beast ...

on paper, it is impressive ...
in the ears too ...

If you got a good bass (it's not a possibility, I know you got a good bass o )))... all settings of the amp flat, you got a full, with Zulas Zarmoniques across the spectrum, as if there were lights in it ... This is not the case!

The sound is clear and confo in the mess of repeating sound or scene, with deep bass (and wi, even SIgrave is great made ​​with two 10 "is amazing), good crisp treble but never intrusive
(Still to be careful with super low dynamic as ours: my CMD102 is back to the store for now, to repair the tweeter, but it's my fault ... is better to use a limiter / compressor does not get there, (too bad it was not "embedded original")

Speaking of "embedded stuff", there is a very interesting dual function: the last two knobs of the front adds to your sound,
over the first "TraceElliotSound"
and the second more "AmpegSound ".... (Or otherwise ... remember!)
Finally, mwa, that's how I explain the concept.

Well, OK, yellow and black, is getting used to, and you risk not to shoot in on stage without meaning to, even if like me you use it in "foot bath" next to sono return
(There is a cutout in the back that allows the switch ... and it remains stable on its toes in p'tits caoutcouc) ...
that's something very cool this provision there, you always hear you, as the drummer and the sound engineer does not have a double bass signal front
y z'aiment's right, it is nice to them, push buttons and after, as they have become friends with you, they will promote in the mix because you're facades become the coolest band
(Excerpt from "The Good Tips Mononkl Sniive. VOL XXXIV)

But the thing that really makes the difference:


wiwi ... it all fits in a small volume (to look at the sheet, but it's not very big) and weighs 19kilos!
What happiness for my back (... and the handles are not too bad damn for once)

I bought in the wake a little devil (yellow and black, too, have not done on purpose: o))) in a hardware store for 45 Euros ... A trio with my van or ...
It was a lot of dates this year my group and I have not had a single wake-up "painful" back side.

Both (the devil and MarkBass o) cost me a total of 1100Euros ...
Even expensive po ...
In any case, and you know that I'm broke a chronic, a quality / price / performance amazing!
