It’s a big year for innovation in the world
of Markbass cabinets. For starters, there’s
a whole new line called the Club Series.
Actually a revival of Marco De Virgiliis’
first cabinet line, it’s the most lightweight
Markbass cabinet series, using slightly thinner Italian poplar, the latest generation of
Markbass/B&C custom speakers, and top-grade custom Tolex covering. All but one of
them (the 600 F32) can sit back in wedge
monitor position for better onstage sound.
The Club 600 F32 is a re-issue of one of
Marco’s first products—a front-ported
2x12 with a new 1.25” compression driver
and a gloriously full-range sound that
takes Markbass fidelity to a new level. The
Club 102 is an ultralight 2x10 with lots of
punch, the Club 151 is a highly portable
cab with unusually defined tone for a 1x15,
and the Club 121 1x12 is now the lightest
Markbass cabinet but also benefits from the
smooth highs of a 1” compression driver
and custom horn.
There are two new additions to the New
York Series in 2010. Hot on the heels of the
great success of the New York 604 (4x6”)
is the New York 804, which features four
8” speakers and has the sound and power
handling (1000W) to pose a threat to just
about any 4x10 on the market!
In response to many requests for a Mark-bass 2x12 cabinet, there is the New York
122, a rear-ported alternative to the Club
Now Markbass is offering a rear-ported
8x10 with its trademark yellow speakers,
the Standard 108HR. It’s got the celebrated
true-to-the-source tone expected from
Markbass, and the aggressive tone and
power expected from an 8x10, but it only
weighs 89 lbs!
