Bass Vador's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Great for work at home"

Markbass Micromark
Class D amp
Preamp transistor
No gain or standard equalizer
Only 1 knob (FFT) that acts as an enhancer (hollow mediums)
4.5 kg
50 W 8 ohms / 4 ohms 100 w
1 XLR, 1 headphone (minijack), 1 entry to (mini jack), 1 extra power output
HP 6p


Ultra simple, the sound will reflect the sound of the bass.


The fact that there is a correction (FFT) is not a problem, since the bowl 6p makes a lot of mediums, VPF will correct this trend and brings a softer sound.
Warning, there is no gain, high level (3/4) can overload the HP, we must play with the volume low.
Very convenient to work at home, the headphone also can connect a laptop or PC to work on tracks or programmed tracks, big advantage.
additional HP output makes it pretty amazing, I remember having used 4 ohms coupled with a 2x10 of the same brand by typing beef with percussion (congas) and guitars, it sends the block severely.


I have this machine since 2007, very convenient to work at home when my wife yells a little (yes), ideal for going to type the beef in small groups and great for a holiday.
In addition, he found a second interest to amplify music Holiday (like a job wholesale).
Probably the best in its class, even if it is a little expensive to buy.

Grenouillère's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"Just fabulous!"

Markbass Micromark
For all the features it has been included in the previous review.
I'll take the main points:
- Combo transistor to "low" 50 w equipped with an HP 6 ".
- There is a "low" input, volume, an equation knob "VPF" the famous (Variable Preshape filter) audio input and a headphone jack.
- Back: DI output an HP external output (denoted "tweeter") and food fan ... Adds a switch to turn off the internal hp and a switch to ground.
- Dimensions: 27 cubic cm and weighs 4.2 kg.

So much for the purely technical features ... simplistic? Yes but in the end this amp full of surprises!


If the config is simple! This is a joke?
With a button for the volume and the other for the FFT? I do not see how "more" easy!
Sound: it is obtained by adjusting the level (volume) and then depending on the "type" of sound you want. If you want the sound of his low VPF is left at 0. The more you go, the more it cuts mids! So the sound is more modern (if JB or PB is used)!
The very good thing is that I hesitated to choose this amp because of the lack of "standard" EQ bass / med / high. But finally it works best! I was really impressed with the build quality and the efficiency of the system!

What I like most: the weight! (A blessing!) Congestion (it takes so little space you can move very easily), the explosive power that can not be repeated play house concert ...


For the style, it's markbass! So the opposite of "vintage". It is a modern sound that can play in lots of styles (reggae to rock, blues, funk, soul ...) wholesale from the edgy metal, it provides!
I only tested on Jazz bass and precision bass: RAS!
What I really like is how the sound "Markbass" lets you drill the mix without having to be ultra strong! The sound is clean clear defined. The distinct sound of the bass. It is a pleasure to play on this listbox!

I thought the HP 6 "would have trouble with the bass ... Well the first test by connecting:! Wow ... What the hell is that rich sound, clean, flexible ... Anyway very surprising! I first tested alone. For the home work oxen apart, of the titles work sessions or play "soft" is really the "perfect! Low on the back, the receiver in one hand! And presto! It is a pleasure to carry ... And the first time you show it by saying: "This is my new bass amp!" people are genuinely surprised!

It should be clear, without being dubbed the amp is limited by its 50w announced. Besides this topic is clearly safer than the 50 watts at Markbass worth of 150/200 w advertised elsewhere ...

At the same time the sensitivity is 100 dB which is this great feeling of sound diffusion!
Only it is already prepared for a lot of situations!

Comes the second step: connect an external cab. And here we go into another dimension ... I first tested on a 2 x 10. "And then I took a slap! It was just" awesome "... I could not believe my ears!

So I took the challenge of the coupling to a speaker and a repeated attempt (with two guitars, drums, harmonica ...).
I played 4/6 which leaves plenty of room yet! And frankly mounted really became too much! (And we are talking about a combo of 50 w!). I tested some time by cutting the internal hp. This is very good even if it loses more acute with the internal hp tuned!


I use it for quite some time. But I do not regret choosing this system before! for the back, the transport is just awesome!
I wanted to get a smaller body than a 3 to play at home, possibly repeat, and also supply various cattle system. not as bad I was tired of lugging my battery hp, amp ... who often make huge weight ...

This thing is top! More as I find myself in an apartment, I wanted something "compact". This is the height thing with MicroMark! It moves like a pen, it's so compact that was almost afraid to forget ... In short, a treat for those who are often (or not for that matter) "nomadic".
It will almost daily situations ... For repeated / concerts provide a cab more! For concerts I intend to use it with a cab and go back in the sound!
The Q / P ratio: hard to say because it's ultra-expensive even for a combo Cygnus 50 w. Now when you realize the quality, power, sound ... It can only be bleuffé! Like any quality has a price!

What I like: almost everything!
I love ... is going to be a few watts more leaves to add a few grams!

9.26 lbs / 4.2 kg

8.62 in. / 21.9 cm

Connection level:
An auxiliary input, headphone output, DI output, a tweeter output, a switch "ground lift".

Two knobs:
_VLE (Vintage low emulator: it acts like a tone, it reduces the treble / high mids)


I do not think you can do more easily and efficiently.
The manual is of no use, if one has already played on an amp at least once in his life.
The sound is superb, very well defined. I do not even serve me VLE.


This amp suits both my style of music (Jazz, Swing), it allows me to jamer, anywhere, anytime, as long as I can plug it in, of course.
A guitar (Ibanez af 85 vls), it produces a fabulous jazz, although it is a bass amp. A bass is a great support to play with acoustic musicians on bass, for bosser, make intimate sessions, it's great. There is a lack of serious, of course, but it is inherent in the fact that, yes, it is a HP 6'' there in the creature, not a 15''.
But precisely this format can take it everywhere, unfortunately, I have not yet found a backpack that can hold it. I have not really tried to be honest.
The sound of the instrument is very well respected. My Streamer Stage II sounds great in it.
It must still do not ask the impossible: 50W, 50W it's still playing with a drummer is in the field of illusion. Unless someone says drummer is sensitive and full of sweetness, which is in fact very rare in drummers.


I use it for about 6 months. I already tried a lot of amps, and I have been sawn.
I owned the MINIMARK few years, and I thought it was a bastard size: too heavy to be transported 2km without feeling badly effects, not powerful enough to play electrified group, unless making music " gently. " It is not impossible, but will have to try to convince a musician to play more softly, you will soon understand that doing the same thing with a group is purely illusory.
So this full stack amp wonder my Markbass 500, I sometimes reluctant to get off the top of my 3 floors.
What I like the most is its size and weight. The sound it delivers is beautiful.
What I like least ... My three floors without elevator! : (((
on the other hand, as new, it's amp is expensive. And Phil Jones offers the interesting things that look for less. In nine, at least.
But I do not care, I bought OCCAZ. And I think I do it again this choice, unless Phil Jones ...

lvmax's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Small and surprisingly powerful for its size"

Markbass Micromark
Everything has already been said about the Features.
It is really pokey in size (that's what surprised me the most), and is lightweight.
The FFT filter is really nice.
Input and output to headphones.
Excellent manufacturing quality ... what the Markbass.


Very easy to use.
Have the connectors on the top instead of the front, makes it easy.
I used to carry me home, but now I will not hesitate to bring to rehearsals.


I play Washburn XB400 Bantam with a force that already has a pre-amp thunder of God and placed with the couple Micromark, it takes a sound decanted. That said, do not expect to do a concert, volume up on the bass and the amp does not follow the Micromark (breath and distortion), at least that's what I noticed with my Washburn .
The FFT filter is not a useless gadget, it contributes greatly to the sound search.


It is easy to store, it is handy, transportable with a retractable handle.
It is true that there is a fan running and it perceives (like PC running), but personally it does not bother me.

Again, do not expect to "rock the house" with, there are physical limits as the size of the speaker and subwoofer, for against the "small box" will surprise many.

I got a nice price (275 €), I would not deprive myself :)
