Markbass Standard 210HF

Postby slaine01 on 23 Mar 2010, 22:37

Hi guys,
Anyone use a Markbass Standard 210HFas a stand alone cab?
Looking at running an Eden WTX500 into it ( looking at a 4ohm cab ) and wondering what people think of them.
Already running a Markbass 410HF (4 ohm) for bigger venues, but looking for an easy lug "210" option.

Easy Lug?

The 410HF is hardly a heavy rig......

yeah, but dont need a 410 for my monday - tuesday cafe gig.
Have to carry it up 3 flights of steps and want to do it in one run - Bass and amp in gig bag on back, cable bag (with mics, and assorted XLRs/power) in one hand and cab in the other.

Mark we had a band of youngsters playing a jazz set before us at a wedding gig recently. The bass player had a markbass 210 and at that moderate volume, it was fine. Mind you once we started playing at our normal cover band volume, even he commented that his 210 would have struggled.

I guess it just depends how loud your cafe gig gets?

Hi pete,
Pretty much looking for a stage monitor so volume isnt too much of an issue - a lot of the gigs we are doing at the moment i can get away with a smaller cab.

I worry a little when people say "It's only a stage monitor". Technically my rig (currently 3x12's, previously 6x10's) is a stage monitor too, but it still has to be loud because everything else on stage is loud.

It should be fine as a stage monitor, provided it's not competing with a loud drummer, loud foldback, and a big PA placed nearby.

I've played tons of pub gigs with just a 2x10, competing with 2 guitars, loud drummers and keyboards. As long as the cab is a quality unit and can handle lots of watts being thrown at it, they can be more than adequate in many venues.

However, whenever stage space isn't an issue I'll always bring 2 or 3 cabs just to be on the safe side in terms of pushing enough air to make my flairs flap in the breeze.

I've seen Owen Downie, (from the Simon Wright Elcective/Simon Phillips Band/ Etc), use his LMII and 210 at Espy front bar and Revolver gigs without a problem.

If you are looking at an easier way have a look at the traveler, they are a few kg's lighter again particularly the 2x10 and the newyork 604(a 4x6). At 15kg they were just a little too heavy for me but I found they sounded fine.

not sure if your still looking at this.

I have been using a markbass 210HF for my small to medium gigs for 5 months, It is good.

With the markbass gear it is important to drive the speakers well. The Eden WTX500 will be well matched.

It is quite good at handling bass at high volumes. I think it would handle the gig your describing and you may find yourself using it a bit more just because of how easy it is to move about.
