OVERVIEW

The Markbass Little Mark tube amp head gives the warmth and richness of a tube preamp, the clean attack of a solid state preamp, or a mix of both. The bass amp head features a mix control for mixing between a solid state preamp and tube preamp. The result offers a range of sounds, from the crisp, Markbass sound in the solid state, to a heavy tube sound in the tube state, and anything in between. On the front panel there are 2 inputs with separate gain controls: one 1/4" jack, and one combo jack that accepts either an XLR or 1/4". The Vintage Loudspeaker Emulator (VLE) and Variable Preshape Filter (VPF) allow access to a wide array of timbres, from classic tones to modern hi-fi sound. A phantom power switch accompanies the XLR input, for using a microphone on a double bass. Mute control is as simple as a push and a pull on the master volume switch. The Markbass Little Mark has 4 bands of equalization, line out control, and pre/post EQ switch for the XLR out (on the rear panel). Rack ears not included. The bass amp head features a single 6205 miniature tube.

Tube or solid state? This head's got 'em both.

      Great EQ, easy to get whatever sound you need. Tube helps warm it up a bit.

      My second favorite amp ever

      By 

      from San Diego

      Comments about Markbass Little Mark Tube Bass Amp Head:

      Why did I title this my "Second Favorite Amp Ever", because I just got the MarkBass Little Mark Tube 800 and with the extra power for my Schroeder cab, it is my #1. These amps are amazing. I have owned Mesa Boogie Big Blocks, Ampegs, SWRs, GKs... and even though the Mesa and Ampegs sound sweet, these amps sound great and are LIGHT!!! I truck mine around in a laptop bag and at 7 lbs, there is no comparison. It is so much nicer than the 55 lb rack I used to carry. The "Tube" sound isn't very noticeable, so going with a LMII or LMIII would work just fine as well.

      Tone Monster

      By 

      from Trenton, Tx

      Comments about Markbass Little Mark Tube Bass Amp Head:

      Great tone, very flexible. It sounds like you and nothing less. The option of the tube preamp probably isn't necessary for most players though it does add a little warmth when blended 100% tube. The VLE and VPF are much more useful than I initially thought. Build quality is top notch. bottom line: Tone Monster.

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Markbass Little Mark Tube Bass Amp Head:

      after 15 years of pro playing and 10 more as a novice , i have to say the LM tube blew me away right out of the box. i play spector basses into a boss me50b into the LM tube thenn into a swr henry the 8th. with all set flat it was incredible. like a 800rb on juice!!! awesome tube creamy smooth sound that really sounds way better than most all tube heads (and ive owned a ton of em) and still maintains the cut in the mix that solids are known for ... all i can say is so far im blown away with the looks, quality, workmanship, design, and sound .... i give it two thumbs up ....
