Bass Player reviews the Big Bang

Aug. 31, 2012, midnight
Bass Player magazine has reviewed the Big Bang in its October 2012 issue.
Here are some highlights:

"A compact amp that takes the company's popular recipe--500 watts, a 4-band EQ, and signature VLE and VPF filters--and adds to it such goodies as front panel AUX IN and headphone jacks."

"Even if I weren't familiar with the Big Bang's predecessors, the now-discontinued F1 and F500 heads, I'd have an easy go getting the sounds I want out of it."

"The Big Bang had everything I've come to appreciate about the Markbass sound--a quick, dynamic response; ample headroom for any mid-sized stage; flexible tone control."

"The Big Bang's front-panel AUX IN and headphone jacks are definitely welcome additions. Plugging a bass, an iPhone and headphones into the front panel turns the Big Bang into a mobile practice pad, allowing you to play along with tracks and blend the levels of the two inputs."

"With its headroom, tone controls, and extra features, the Big Bang is sure to make a lot of noise when it hits. If you're looking for all that in a lightweight, compact package, the Big Bang is definitely worth serious thought."
