Australian Guitar Magazine has reviewed the Ninja 102-500 Richard Bona signature combo, saying it is virtually the perfect product: simple to use, easy to lug and satisfying to hear.
Here some excerpts from the review:
In less than 20 years, Markbass has become the premiere, got-to-have-it amp/cab builder for bass professionals and amateurs alike, pushing aside more established brands and continuing to refine the line with innovative ideas and no-nonsense products.
The Ninja delivers like no other compact bass combo I’ve heard.
This is a rock’n’roll tone that fits into almost any style of the genre, from emo to blues.
The Ninja has a level of subtleness to its delivery that is not immediately noticeable. This is where the touch-sensitivity of the Ninja kicks in: play brashly – maybe with a pick – and you’ll find a plethora of great rock tones. But play dynamically with fingers and there’s loads of nuance to be found.
With the Ninja 102 500, Markbass have really nailed the power and tone versus portability issue. Unless you’re after that whole heavy metal subsonic thing, the Ninja will deliver a sweet and even tone across the frequency spectrum without breaking your back or bank account.
One of the most complete pieces of gear I’ve ever seen, the Ninja is gig-ready and studio quality; the sound is audiophile without the sterility; the attitude is hi-fi with heart.
"This is so sweet. Markbass, the amplifier company whose products I use and love, asked us endorsers to submit a backing track for folks to play on top of. There have been many lovey interpretations of mine and I'm really enjoying this one."
Here the latest video from Markbass top-artist Evan Marien, where he's playing the bass part that he recorded on the new Tigran Hamasyan song 'Levitation 21', using the direct out of his Nano Mark 300!
Enjoy and share!

This video is worth to be watched entirely as it features all the kind words and thoughts we received from our artists during this tough period.
That gives us the strenght to go through it, thank you!
Music is our life, the universal way to express ourselves!
