Update: Markbass Momark, tc electronic rs212

Mark bass momark with tube preamp module, 4 band eq module and master with vlf and vfe module in 500w analog power frame, had it a few months and I brought it New, but I just prefer my markbass tte500 and wouldn't mind another head, these are now pretty rare and Italian made, some of the new markbass stuff isn't made in Italy anymore.

So looking for a sale, $1000ono or trade for something gk, ampeg, Aguilar, ebs or something that tickles my fancy

It doesn't do overdrive, it's more just to add a a little character to the tone, not quite like a little mark tube, but it's not as bland as a little mark

The modules in that configuration are basically a Little Mark, so a great warmish sounding tone, but not "tubey" in the way that the TTE500 is.

"Still" compared to what? The gain stage does go into a little overdrive but not early that I know of.

in my experience i cannot find a little mark series amp (besides the rocker 500) that doesn't clip to early with my current set up.

The Markbass amp does not have the common pad switch for the input stage. They leave it up to you to check that you set the gain accordingly using the clip led as an indicator. When I do this then clipping is not a problem for me. The volume is controlled by the master. I have a momark too and it sounds great.

id dare say the warwick has a pretty hot output, but thats why the input gains adjustable, to get the right level for each instrument :thumbup:

Yep; I've got a $$ Fretless Corvette, & the output of that thing is radioactive! You could fly a Plane between the strings & the pickups I've got them set so low; yet even in passive mode it still has as much (if not more) output level as the other active Basses I have.
8/

On some occasions when I've gigged just with that Bass alone, I've forgotten what it's like & started off with the volume wide open. As the night progresses & things get louder, I end up having to back it off & bring the gain on the Amp up; I find I get more clean level out of the Amp overall when the input stage isn't being loaded up so much.

I just happen to own both a MoMark and a Warwick $$. No problems with any preamp overloading or clipping. Sounds great. :)
