"This is where you should look if you want clean, powerful, loud tones that really show off your bass’s natural qualities" Australia's Mixdown magazine has reviewed the CMD 121H combo in their May 2015 issue.
Here are some highlights:
This is where you should look if you want clean, powerful, loud tones that really show off your bass’s natural qualities
The multitude of EQ controls, the VLE and the VPF make sure you can get extremely tweakable
The preamp is definitely able to maintain rather than mask the things that made you love your bass in the first place
If you have an active bass you’ll appreciate just how ‘hi-fi’ your sound can be
If you use passive pickups you’ll love the amount of articulation and dynamic range you’ll be able to coax
This combo is great for those who need really crisp, punchy, bold tones without a hint of unwanted distortion.
It’s great for blues, jazz and cover bands, and it can even do a fine line in vintage style tone minus the tube growl.
- Highly customizable tone.
- Transparent when you want it to be.
- Handy DI output level.
