The November/January issue of Australian Guitar magazine features a glowing review of the TTE500 head and New York 151RJ cabinet.Here are some of the highlights:
Overall"Both products have features unlike any other products in the Markbass range."
"The price of this head does not reflect the price of an all tube head, but it still has the tone close to what you would expect from an all tube head."
"The amp has enough gain to nail some classic rock and metal tones and does it extremely well."
"The in-built compressor is musical and easy enough to use to be able to tweak between songs making it an extremely versatile feature."
"The tone of the all tube preamp and the reliability of the solid-state power amp make this amp a gigging player’s amp, reliable with a great tone."
"Markbass consistently make bass products of the highest standard, and the TTE 500 is no exception."
"The TTE 500 takes on the ideas that feature in some of their other great amps and takes it one step further."
"If you are in need of an amp that sounds great, has an awesome tone, and the reliability of a solid-state power amp, then the TTE 500 is well worth checking out."
New York 151RJ
"The New York 151 RJ has a high enough power rating to make it extremely crisp and defined when matched with the TTE 500 head."
"The tone is warm and extremely clear for a 15 inch speaker."
"The cabinet not only sounds great, but it has a cool look to it too."
