> BEATING THE 2X15” COMPETITORS
There are not many 2x15” cabs on the market, partly because of the typical 15” drivers lack of definition limiting their range of application. But with the CLASSIC 152 SH, this configuration is now an available choice for a wider population of bass players, not only rock-reggae-dub bassists but even for slap lovers. Not for nothing, Stu has chosen this speaker configuration for his complex and articulate technique.
> 1” COMPRESSION DRIVER WITH CUSTOM HORN
If you turn off the tweeter level control you’ll get an astounding vintage, 60s/70s sound, or just turn it on to extend the high end of the frequency response from 5KHz to 20KHz adding a modern high-end sheen to your sound!
> WEIGHT/POWER RATIO
The lightness and power of this cabinet put it in a new league compared to the 2x15” cabinets of the past, which tended to be way heavier and lacking in power, making them unpractical.
With 72.75lbs/33kg and reasonable dimensions, transportation is a breeze. And 800W of power handling makes it suitable for any big rock stage.
“Markbass has finally given me the sound that I have been looking for! The S.T.U. Amp 1000 has beautiful solid state and tube sounds that can also be blended together to create the sound that I need, according to the musical situation. And the cabinet is a ground breaking (and lightweight) 2x15 cabinet, that had more clarity and punch than any 4x10 or 8x10 I’ve played.”
