Mixdown Magazine reviewed the LITTLE MARK VINTAGE.

Feb. 12, 2020, 10:47 a.m.

Here are some highlights from the review by Will Brewster:

  • the Markbass Little Mark Vintage is fully loaded with just about everything a modern bassist could want in an amplifier.
  • For those who like it loud, there’s plenty of gain on tap with the Little Mark Vintage, and gritty low-end tones are easy to achieve when you crank up that Gain knob. This is where the tube preamp really sings, too.
  • Another feature which I found myself lingering on was the secondary EQ control, which offers three unique presets to suit different applications – Flat, Cut and Old. If you’re not too savvy with your tone knobs, or just want an easy way to dial into a reliable tone, you’ll find this to be an incredibly nifty feature.
  • And if you want to bypass the entire EQ section of the Little Mark Vintage and solely use the true grit of the amplifier and its balanced DI output (which also sounds superb due having its own transformer), there’s an option to do so via an external footswitch on the back of the unit.
  • Look, I’m really racking my brains to find a fault in this amp. The Little Mark Vintage churns out everything a gigging bassist should ever want in a bass head, and does it all without asking too many pennies from your pocket.

HITS:
- Tube-driven tones!
- Practical EQ controls and very usable limiter
- Extremely compact
MISSES:
- I don’t own one yet
