"This is a great all-purpose bass cab which is especially geared towards players who require really deep but really tight bass frequencies and... it’s quite gig-friendly too."
Australia's Mixdown magazine has reviewed the Standard 151HR Black cabinet in their September issue, and they found lots of positive things.
Here are some highlights:
> (Markbass) seems to have grown so strongly and taken such a prominent place in bass players’ hearts over the past few years that they’ve become an aspirational brand.
> The Black Line is a really cool thing for Markbass to do: it’s nice that they’re acknowledging that there are players out there who want Markbass gear but can’t afford the high (but justified) price.
> The Standard 151HR sounded plenty punchy.
> The frequency response gives you a nice range from 45Hz to 20kHz.
> Its rear-ported for a nicely fine-tuned low end response.
> There was plenty of fullness to the midrange too.
> When it’s time to get a bit more modern, the cab really shines because it has that nice solid low end from the 15” speaker along with lots of clear treble courtesy of the tweeter.
> Markbass does a great job of keeping their speaker boxes lightweight.
> This is a great all-purpose bass cab which is especially geared towards players who require really deep but really tight bass frequencies and... it’s quite gig-friendly too.
I've been working on a killer bass amp with Marco De Virgiliis and his team in Pescara, Italy. Hung out with them this past June and went over EVERYTHING to make sure we got this just right...woofers, tweeters, EQ. I think you're gonna love it. Check this out. MM
