Product# J27517

Randy Jackson's signature tone, in a cool “Modern Vintage” design.

The TTE 501/TTE 801 looks and sounds vintage—but features some special adaptations of the Markbass innovations like the Tube Technology Emulator (TTE), giving the amp even more tubey warmth.

Your sound comes into this beauty through an old-style tube preamp, is fed through a professional tube compressor, then a simple 3-band passive EQ section, a “Colour” filter (a tube adaptation of the famous Markbass VLE control), and then finally gets amplified by an innovative Tube Technology Emulator power amp. But there's no better way to understand “Modern Vintage” than to plug in the amps and let the tone explains itself!

Comments about Markbass TTE 501 500W Randy Jackson Signature Tube Bass Amp Head:

Love how easy it is to get a great sound from this amp. It really lets the true tone of your bass shine through. The tube compressor and preamp are amazing. The only drawback is there isn't an effects loop on the back panel of the amp. It does however, look amazing and will give you everything from an overdriven SVT sound to warm, thumpy, Motown soul.
