Australian Mixdown magazine has reviewed the Combo 121 Lite Alain Caron signature and they say it's "Plenty of volume, headroom and tone" and "Portable, light, smallish"... they found NONE misses!
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 Combo 121 Lite. Continuing with their portable and lightweight amps that push some serious volume, Markbass seems to be onto another winner.
Somewhat similar in stature to the popular CMD 121H and CMD 151P, the new 121 Lite is taller and skinnier with some added cabinet depth, and measures approximately 38.5 x 46 x 49cm making it still pretty small.
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.
"This is so sweet. Markbass, the amplifier company whose products I use and love, asked us endorsers to submit a backing track for folks to play on top of. There have been many lovey interpretations of mine and I'm really enjoying this one."
