Current issue of Australian Guitar magazine includes a very positive review of the Ninja 102 500 - Richard Bona signature combo.
Here some excerpts:
In less than 20 years, Markbass has become the premiere, got-to-have-it amp/cab builder for bass professionals and amateurs alike, pushing aside more established brands and continuing to refine the line with innovative ideas and no-nonsense products.
The Markbass Ninja 102 500 is virtually the perfect product: simple to use, easy to lug and satisfying to hear.
The Ninja can present four-string bass chords without any grind or clash. Harmonics sit sweetly through a couple of octaves above the fundamentals, and those ten-inch speakers effortlessly handle the complexity of the overtones so that they don’t rub up against each other. There’s no distortion of fuzziness – just clarity and harmonic depth.
With the Ninja 102 500, Markbass have really nailed the power and tone versus portability issue.
One of the most complete pieces of gear I’ve ever seen, the Ninja is gig-ready and studio quality; the sound is audiophile without the sterility; the attitude is hi-fi with heart.
