In 2001, Markbass decided to make it their top priority to cater to the needs and desires of bass players. Musicians wanted gear that delivered a clear and honest representation of their instrument while also having enough power to give them headroom. And if it was lightweight and easily portable, even better! Markbass listened and developed amps with an exceptional power-to-weight ratio that accurately magnified bass frequencies. It didn't take long for bassists to take notice of this state of the art technology, launching Markbass into one of the top amplifier brands in the world. Their product line has since expanded to include effects pedals of the same high caliber that are compact, offer fast tracking and provide a super clean sound.
So if you're in the market for an amp or effects pedal, you've come to the right place. Markbass offers an impressive catalog of products for bass players of all levels. Choosing which amplifier or effects pedal that is right for you comes down to what you'll be using the equipment for and of course, personal preferences.
For example, if you're looking for a lightweight combo amp that accommodates large outdoor settings or a local bar, the Markbass CMD 102P 300/500W 2x10 Tilt-Back Bass Combo Amp is a top-notch choice. Its compact size makes it easily portable, a built-in Little Mark II preamp offers more power when needed, plus VLE and VPF controls provide amazing tonal range. Are you looking for more head room?
