Bass Player magazine reviews the Little Mark Tube 800.

Feb. 24, 2017, 3:02 a.m.

Here some excerpts:

The Tube 800’s construction is solid and up to the same standard set by the company’s other heads. I have a good amount of experience with the brand, and a Markbass amp has never failed on me at a gig. 

Interior construction is orderly and dense, and the hardware on offer is not luxurious, but it’s rugged and skillfully assembled. 

One cool feature: The Markbass has two inputs, each with an associated gain control. While the amp does not have a two-channel preamp, it does allow a player to plug into each input and use them simultaneously. One of the inputs is a Neutrik Combo jack with switchable phantom power—perfect for a condenser mic or some upright pickups. 

In fine Markbass tradition, the Little Mark Tube 800 proved itself a value-packed, versatile, and portable companion that did everything well. Check it out—less for the negligible tube preamp, and more because it’s voiced slightly outside the Markbass midrangey norm. Regardless, for the price, it’s deserving of a close look for a do-it-all, gig-bag-portable head.
