We are proud to announce that the MB Mini Boost and MB Mini Dist effect pedals had been reviewed on the December issue of the TopGuitar magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors' award for that month.
“The MB Mini series of effect pedals was designed to give bassists some very practical tools that are compact enough to fit on any pedal board. A clean boost is useful to have in many live situations, not just for solos but whenever the bass needs extra volume; and the VPF is great for slap breaks or simply a variety in tone. The Mini Dist provides a variety of distortion options, from a subtle overdrive that emulates a fully-cranked stack, to more extreme distortion effects. We are very pleased that these pedals have been honoured with the Top Gear award, and hope that everyone will get a chance to try them for themselves!”
Below are some excerpts from a successful review by Maciek Warda, TopGuitar's gear department editor:
“The smallest of Markbass effects hide power and fury that we can unleash with just one stomp and tame with proper settings or our own articulation. I guess it's time to reorganize your floor board!”
“MB Mini Boost is a pure booster, amplifying the signal from your bass guitar and offering a buffer function that lowers the impedance to a safe level with no noise.”
“Due to its different function, the MB Mini Dist has more expanded controls. It's a bass overdrive that's meant to bring some dirt to low frequencies and based on a construction of Markbass Bass Tube Marker, renowned for high quality of sound and its own way when it comes to the distortion character.”
