The Little Mark II has a 4-band EQ, as well as two exclusive Markbass' filters for rounding out your tone to perfection. A handle on top makes Markbass CMD 151P amp easy to transport too.

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

THIS AMP IS AMAZING I've played many combos and amp/cab combinations throughout my 25+ years playing bass. I play both electric and upright bass in all styles: rock, jazz, swing, metal, funk, and even ska/reggae bands.

After years of using a gk800rb and hartke 4x10 cab, I had enough of lugging the heavy gear. Sure, it sounded good, but my back was aching after every gig. I needed something portable that sounded GOOD. I'd tried the amp 1x15 combo and it sounded nice (not bad, not amazing), but it's still kinda heavy.

I settled on the Markbass after testing one out at a local shop. The sound is amazing.

I finally got my markbass 1x15 last week and had a gig over this weekend at a pier down by Buffalo's Canalside. Outdoor gigs usually test an amp. This thing passed with flying colors. The sound was huge (never turned it up past 2 on the master) and full. Several other musicians actually came up during my set to compliment the bass tone.

This is the best amp you're gonna own. Get a Markbass amp.

    Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

    Being a Non-Headliner musician means no roadies to haul your equipment, Having used an 80 lb Ampeg combo for the last couple of years takes a toll on my back, and switching over to a 41 lb rig with almost twice the power as the old one is a win-win situation, I had the opportunity to gig test this amp last weekend, and with the volume level at around 1 1/2 was all the volume I needed, I do have a couple of issues, no mute switch, and downloadable users manual isn't very helpful. Could use a built in tuner for the price.

    Best Bass Combo Ive ever played

    By tim cannetti

    from babylon ny

    Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 151P 300/500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

    If I had the money I'd buy 4 of them
    I think it has everything you need.
    Great quaility, but I dont understand why any company uses carpet on thier products.
    It is very expensive, but also the clearest, rumbling, shake your organs bass Ive ever heard come out of a combo. With the extention cab, it prob rivals the big boys.
