      Markbass amp F500 review

      Comments about Markbass F 500 Bass Amp Head:

      The sound of this amp is sweet and it fits in a gig bag. The other bass player asked me if he could start using my amp, because he likes it so much. Markbass has got a great product and the hype/buzz is in this case is very deserving.
      Great features. Love the Mute option-just pull the volume knob out and I can tune using the tuner out jack w/out being heard. The DI has a level control which helps the soundguy. Good eq. section as well. Plenty of power in a small frame-- Bye Bye big amps.
      I have used this amp for about 4 months and it performs wonderfully. The knobs feel solid and the amp stays cool w/mini fan on side.
      I wanted to buy an amp that I would not have regrets afterwards. I spent more than the average price of other amps w/same power rating and it was/is a wise decision.
