NAD: Mark Bass AG 1000

Recommended Posts

Finally here.


Only had 5 mins with it so far but it sounds good and has that warmth MB amps usually have.


Quite different to the RM800 but that's a good thing as I like a bit of variety.


Bit of fan noise (not as quiet as the Ashdown) but no louder than a pretty quiet PC that isn't doing anything taxing. 

Might take it to rehearsal on Saturday to see what happens in the mix.

Having tried soooo many different amp brands and configurations over the years, I’ve found that Markbass simply ‘work’ for me better than any other. 

In fact, so much so that I currently have an order in for no less than 3 new heads (matching gig head and a studio one plus a Nano backup for gigging), a pair of cabs (both 4 ohms for different situations) and a small rehearsal/acoustic combo. 

All are replacements for existing MB gear, which I’ve put up for sale. I’ve now worked out exactly which combinations I want and am excited to settle in with them. 

The AG, and MM, heads were both on my list but I settled on the warmer tones of a small valve pre head instead. Also don’t need more than 500w into the 4ohm cabs. 

I bet the AG sounds monstrous at full whack!
