But since it's so often the choice of Rock bass players, MarkBass decided to make a more aggressive version, adding custom-designed tube-drive circuitry to the bass head for a wide range of onboard overdrive and distortion sounds.

rocker 500

By Dylan McAlister

from Jonesboro, AR

Comments about Markbass Little Mark Rocker 500 500W Bass Amp Head:

i purchased this amp over an orange, and the orange sounded really good. this amp has great tone shaping features, nothing too fancy but it creates great tone. tone is what matters and this amp has it.
nice basic eq section, the mute switch is great, the tube drive breaks up perfectly, the VLE and VPF filters really help shape whatever tone your after
amp is constructed well, and the tone is really good.
for the price, really a great buy, id say im perfectly satisfied

      Comments about Markbass Little Mark Rocker 500 500W Bass Amp Head:

      I paired this head with two Markbass 102p 2x10 cabs and it pushes them really well. Plenty of power and the EQ gives me a choice of clean or distorted. No need for pedals. Very lightweight, high quality Markbass head.

          Comments about Markbass Little Mark Rocker 500 500W Bass Amp Head:

          i have been using ampeg and peavey heads for about 8 years and i wanted to keep with the tradition by buying my next head from one of the two; but then i tried the little rocker 500w and felt in love with it. the build-in drive is crazy, i don't use anything else but this amp since the moment i saw it. it's definitely worth every penny.
