Bass Player Magazine Reviews the Bass Multiamp

Bass Player magazine has reviewed the Bass Multiamp in its June 2015 issue.

Below are some highlights:

"The Bass Multiamp was big and ballsy, and even without compression, the Multiamp shied away from hi-fi complexity or "warm" muddiness in favor of pratical, compressed-sounding muscle."

"The flexibility and selection were impressive, however, and each amp model, regardless of wheter it lived up to its namesake, inspired new ideas and fresh approach."

"On a dimly lit stage, the bright light blue panel and red Leds around the EQ knobs were quite welcome."
 
"At soundcheck, the opening band's bassist borrowed the rig, hastily chose a preset, end easily sculpted it to his liking with the 5-band EQ."

"Armed with a bark that might have caused ear fatigue when soloed at high volumes, the Multiamp made sure that neither his passive '70 Fender Precision with roundwounds nor the Elrick were ever buried by bad acoustic, clueless sound techs, or dangerous loud guitarists."

"A boatload of flexible tone packages in a portable, well-designed head."

"If you are looking for a detailed, hi-fi rig that illuminates the subtler aspects of your solo tone and advanced techniques, other amps are probably already on your radar. But when it's time for a portable, powerful bass amp that's packed with an array of flexible tone templates, there's really nothing else like the Markbass Bass Multiamp."
