Australia's Mixdown mag has reviewed the Little Mark Tube 800

May 12, 2015, midnight
Australia's Mixdown magazine has reviewed the LITTLE MARK TUBE 800 head in their May 2015 issue. 

Here some excerpts: 
  • Some bass players need the crisp and detailed sound of a solid state preamp to give them the most high-fidelity sound possible. Others need the warmth and fatness of a tube preamp to give them those growly, slightly smeared vintage textures. while others need it all wrapped up in a nice little bundle. That’s where the Markbass LM Tube 800 comes in. It’s a tiny little amp head designed to handle all of these sounds and to do it with grace and style.
     
  • I got the kind of deep, rounded, slightly fuzzy tones I was looking for pretty much instantly, perfect for vintage rock.
  • I dialled back the Mix control a little to introduce some of the solid state sound into the mix for more of a modern rock attack
  • There was a magic zone here where with careful dialling of the high mid control I could summon a whole bunch of Geddy Lee tone
  • This is a really flexible amp that can do it all, whether you just want one really great, finely customized set-and-forget sound for a whole set or whether you need to continually adjust your tone between songs for a covers gig
  • It’s also capable of getting plenty loud, which is great news if you play big stages or hate your neighbours.
