"This is a great all-purpose bass cab which is especially geared towards players who require really deep but really tight bass frequencies and... it’s quite gig-friendly too."
Australia's Mixdown magazine has reviewed the Standard 151HR Black cabinet in their September issue, and they found lots of positive things.
Here are some highlights:
> (Markbass) seems to have grown so strongly and taken such a prominent place in bass players’ hearts over the past few years that they’ve become an aspirational brand.
> The Black Line is a really cool thing for Markbass to do: it’s nice that they’re acknowledging that there are players out there who want Markbass gear but can’t afford the high (but justified) price.
> The Standard 151HR sounded plenty punchy.
> The frequency response gives you a nice range from 45Hz to 20kHz.
> Its rear-ported for a nicely fine-tuned low end response.
> There was plenty of fullness to the midrange too.
> When it’s time to get a bit more modern, the cab really shines because it has that nice solid low end from the 15” speaker along with lots of clear treble courtesy of the tweeter.
> Markbass does a great job of keeping their speaker boxes lightweight.
> This is a great all-purpose bass cab which is especially geared towards players who require really deep but really tight bass frequencies and... it’s quite gig-friendly too.
