Mixdown reviews the Combo 121 Lite Alain Caron.

Feb. 17, 2016, midnight

Here are some highlights:


> Having played with the likes of Frank Gambale, Mike Stern and Billy Cobham, Alain Caron is a highly respected player in the music community. Likewise, Markbass is one of the most well-known bass amp manufacturers on the planet. It’s then understandable why the two parties would collaborate on the 121 Lite Bass combo.Continuing with their portable and lightweight amps that push some serious volume, Markbass seem to be onto another winner.

> Great for fitting into small stages or carrying around town, the 121 Lite can sit right on the back seat of your car and the combo weighs in at just over 16kgs.

> In terms of power, the 121 Lite runs 500 watts through the 12” woofer and 300 watts into the 1.25” tweeter, allowing for some serious dynamics and volume.

> The combination of the 12” and 1.25” driver also gives you a wide EQ spectrum to handle plenty of players and styles of music.

> Great for a range of basses and tones, the 121 Lite definitely has that Markbass vibe and offers so much as it’s portable and efficient, yet can handle anything from small quiet rehearsals to big gigs.
