Australian Magazine MIXDOWN has reviewed the Little Marcus 800 head.
Here some excerpts:
It doesn’t get much bigger than Marcus Miller in the world of bass playing. His career boasts Grammy awards, platinum records, film scores, and playing/writing/producing/recording with the likes of Miles Davis, Luther Vandross, Bill Withers, Chaka Khan, Herbie Hancock and so many more. He has an identifiable sound, serious chops and groove, and has been hugely influential as a musician (and not just for bass players). So when someone with his status joins forces with a bass amp company, it really must be something they believe in.
As a Markbass head, it’s got all the punch, headroom and EQ possibilities the amps are known for. At 800 watts there’s a lot of juice on tap, and the extension of this Miller line sees 250, 500 and 1000 watt versions giving you quite the selection depending on your tastes and requirements.
Marcus Miller has basically done it all in the bass world, and it’s cool to see him hook up with Markbass with this line of amps. Of course, MM has the funk/jazz/fusion/pop/R&B package down (amongst other things), but this 800 watter could easily work for rock, pop, heavier styles or whatever you want to try.
