Soooo, I’m not sure if I mentioned this in a previous post, but my prized Acoustic 150 head, died. I mean, just all life in this amp ceased to exist. I tried to get it fixed and nothing. It’s just…done. And that’s extremely sad, but more so, it was terrifying.
A few weeks after my amp died, I got the amazing opportunity to play with a band that was opening up for Hunter Hayes in Minnesota. I was beyond thrilled! Then I realized that I couldn’t just show up at a huge venue with my 1×15 combo practice amp. So, I needed to buy an amp quickly. I ran to to Guitar Center that weekend, hoping to score a good deal on an Acoustic Amp to go along with my cab. However, I searched and searched and searched and could not find one they had that was 8 ohms. Furthermore, I could not find an amp, any amp, that was 8 ohms and under $1,000. Which, was highly over my price range. But then I met my Guitar Center angel who got me a huge deal on an amazing amp that I didn’t even think I could afford to look at.
This piece of gold was the Markbass Little Mark III. 500 watts, 8 ohms, 4 band EQ, built in direct out, pre/post EQ, variable pre-shape filter (VPF), vintage loudspeaker emulator (VLE), AND it only weighs six pounds! Everything I could have ever wanted in an amp is in this amp. I’ve never met an amp that sounded this good.
I’ve never taken a punch as strong as this amp delivers. The instant you turn the amp on, all you hear is bass. BOOOOOOM! This tone will blow you away the very minute you hit the string. And no matter how loud you turn up the amp, it stays clean. The problem with my last amp, was that it would start to distort as you would turn it up. But this amp is stays crisp and delicious. After purchasing this amp, I have decided that this is my tone.
Overall, I give this product the most favorable of favorable reviews. Go to your local music store and try it out. You won’t be disappointed!
