Premier Guitar reviews the Big Bang

Nov. 8, 2012, midnight
Premier Guitar magazine has reviewed the Big Bang in its December 2012 issue.

Here are some highlights:

"This amp has an analog quality that coats the highs and attack—almost as if there’s a post-EQ “warmth” circuit that processes the tone."

"Sporting a very smart design, everything on the Big Bang’s front control panel is laid out in an easy to use and accessible fashion. And each control is voiced to have plenty of effect within its specified range, which is great considering the challenge of packing in a lot of knobs and switches on an amp head of this tiny size."

"The VPF control in particular was incredibly useful for digging out mids for slap and pop techniques. Even at its highest settings, the boosted presence of the highs was never too grating or harsh, and the boosted lows, while very full, were never overbearing on the rest of the sound."

"A standout quality of the Big Bang is its transparency. It allowed the signature aspects of both basses to shine through with hardly any coloration, doing a fantastic job of letting the guttural nature of the P bass punch through in the midrange and the characteristically smooth lows of the Jazz to expand and carry throughout the room."

"Plucked notes sustained extremely evenly, and the lows never died out before the mids and highs stopped ringing."

"Not only does the Big Bang sound warm and full, it feels and reacts to playing in a very tube-like manner."

"The Big Bang is a perfect example of why Markbass continues to be an industry leader when it comes to quality bass amplification with a diminutive footprint. This is one seriously cool amp with fantastic tone, versatility, and a reasonable price to boot."

"The Big Bang is an excellent choice for the player who demands great tone with power, definition, and portability."
