Tone is typical no real difference from the LMIII. When driven hard distortion is very noticeable. Would not recomend for anything other than the smallest venues with front of house reinforcement. It distorts at 1/2 power. Thats with a 9 volt preamp on a wick
. My Pbass had a little more room, not much. Great tone though. Very versatile.

    Comments about Markbass Blackline Little Mark 250 250W Bass Amp Head:

    This head is great! I hadn't seen any reviews on it or videos that were in english describing how well it works! I took a trip to guitar center and played one for myself and well, now i own it. If your looking for something with a great tone for a low price hit this amp up.
    It is more than enough to gig with at small to medium size venues and if your playing large more than likely you will use the DI on the amp.
    Im playing through the Markbass 1x15 Travel series Cab with a wireless pack.

        Bought this with Fender Rumble 15" 600 watt cab. Great match up. Have just been playing it a few minutes but this amp sounds so clean and it really puts out. Can't wait to try with a group. I believe it will keep up with any medium size venue. Very pleased with this set up.

          Comments about Markbass Blackline Little Mark 250 250W Bass Amp Head:

          this unit replaced the fried amp in my 04 bassman 150 amp. the cabinet is the wedge shape with a 12" speaker. when the amp died I was upset because I really liked it and had been gigging with it for years.
          I removed the old fender amp and lo and behold: the MarkBass slid right in with a perfect tight fit.
          I just hooked up the speaker wire and jammed on. and as a plus the whole thing is a couple pounds lighter. the amp itself dials from a good warm 'thoom' to a sharp biting 'funk' tone very easily. in fact, the combo now produces more on the very bottom than before. I love this amp

            Comments about Markbass Blackline Little Mark 250 250W Bass Amp Head:

            Been playing on this amp for a few years now and it's seen numerous shows in both a metal project and an americana/rock/folky project. This amp is so crystal clear but you can dial in a little growl. It's also very articulate, I'm a busy player and all the notes and nuances come right on through. And talk about head room! Can not believe how loud this amp can get even at 150 watts @ 8ohms. I run it through either one or two Eden 1x12 cabs depending on the venue, well always run it into both 1x12s for my metal band. People are completely blown away how big this little rig sounds and as a plus the DI is squeaky clean and perfect. You can not buy a better amp for the money and even much more money in some cases.

              Comments about Markbass Blackline Little Mark 250 250W Bass Amp Head:

              Can't say enough good things about this little workhorse. I read all the reviews, compared it to just about everything out there (played through a ton of amps) in the same power/price range, and just couldn't find anything I liked better. It is simple to use and sounds awesome. You can easily dial up your sound and get a nice, warm, fat, presence, instantly, using the VLE and VPF knobs. Have already used it regularly in a live band setting into an 8 ohm cabinet and it gets the job done with room to spare. If you are really rocking out, you may consider something with more wattage, but this thing really delivers in a typical band setting in a small to medium sized venue. I travel light anyway and leave it up to the sound guy to lug his back breaking setup for a large venue, and simply DI me through it. The only thing I wish the 250 had was a small mute switch button with LED for low lighting stage applications, but this is not a big deal to me. There are alternative ways to mute if needed via cables, etc.. Having never owned Markbass gear, I cannot vouch for long range durability, but will say I love the 2 yr standard warranty. Overall I am extremely pleased and would highly recommend this item.

              Own a little mark 11...love it.
              Wanted another amp to leave at the weekend cottage.(not be dragging gear back & forth)
              Lil Mark 250 black line is perfect. Same great tone as lil Mar 11.. with 1/2 the power at 1/2 the price.
              Sounds Great... would recommend if you need a second amp for practise or small gigs.

                I'm a drummer who plays reggae and I dabble in the bass every so often. I find it has nice tones for reggae. Since I only use It at home, I can only vouch for it in a studio environment, as far as power and volume, it's more than enough.
