Mixdown reviews the Big Bang

Nov. 14, 2012, midnight
Australia's Mixdown magazine has sized up the Big Bang, and they found lots to love. Here are some highlights:

"Great to see a company listening to their users and taking some ideas onboard."

"500 watts is a great starting point meaning the Big Bang should be able to cover most gigs. Thanks to its size and weight it won’t be overkill for smaller shows either as it’s basically no effort to carry around, easily slipping into a
leads/accessories bag. Moving onto the EQ and you get Markbass’ typically dynamic range with a balancing of the Gain and Master controls allowing you to keep things clean with plenty of headroom or really grind it up."

"In this age of MP3 players, iPods, Smartphones and the like nearly everyone has some source of music close to hand. The ability to then plug a device into the front of the amp be it for jamming/practicing or backing tracks for performance means you get added fl exibility plus a dedicated headphones out and level control for practicing or monitoring. I’d think this will defi nitely appeal to those fed up with using their el cheapo type practice amps for
jamming/writing/new ideas/learning/practicing!"

"Like all of the Markbass gear I’ve played the Big Bang provides good clean headroom and lots of dynamic range. They’re certainly a company taking it to the next level, ensuring their products will be the next big thing."
