A highly-portable amp with dual power sections and a wealth of tone-shaping features.

This innovative signature combo, designed with bass legend Alain Caron, uses state-of-the-art technology for maximum power and fidelity. The Alain Caron Signature Combo 121 Lite Bass Combo Amp has features that include a mute switch, aux in, headphone out, pre/post EQ and pre/post master switches for the XLR DI out, and footswitch connections for mute and FX loop bypass.

Canadian bassist Alain Caron’s musical career began at the early age of 11 when he won an amateur bass playing contest. He soon joined top 40 bands performing American, South-American and French standards. At the age of 14 he discovered the music that would become his life’s passion - Jazz. Today he is admired for his amazing slap technique and the generosity that he shows in sharing his approach and musical philosophy through the many clinics he offers.

  • A very portable amp w flexible EQ choices and a big sound

    As reviewed by Nathaniel Ranney on 10/17/2013

    I use the Markbass Alain Caron bass amp for both upright and electric bass. At 40 lbs its very portable yet delivers a real lush fat sound (I love ported cabinets) with plenty of capability to deliver funk or thump tonality (or both simultaneously). This bi-amp (500 for lows, 100 for the horn) really has a nice punch and plenty of outputs for a mixing console, another amp, and effects too. The mute button is real handy when I change basses. The only drawbacks I see is the lack of a balanced instrument input (I use my Fishman Platinum ProEQ's balanced output for the upright), and the lights for on/off, footpedal (which I don't use), and mute are blindingly bright so in a dark environment you can read the dials. And it's a bit pricey but still a good value if you have the bucks. All in all, I would give this amp 4.5 stars.

  • This amp is really nice!

    As reviewed by Dave Arasim on 3/27/2012

    I've played on several bass combos and also through the house with a SansAmp in the past. I was looking for my own rig when I got the Alain Caron signature Markbass combo, and I'm very impressed! I was honestly looking for something with a tube preamp. I really liked the classic SWR Redhead combo and was looking for one of those when I found this one. But those SWR combos weigh a ton, so wanted something lighter. At only 40 lbs. this Markbass is the answer. It has a bi-amp set up with 100W analog for the horn. I was expecting it to be a bit tinny, but the horn through the crossover is set up to be just a right amount of high end presence without being obvious. The amp is very flexible, and I'm still getting dialed in. I also wanted a balanced XLR out for the PA. However, at my first gig with this amp, the sound guy said it sounded great and I didn't need to go through the house at all. It was a small room, so great for small to medium gigs, but flexible for big rooms if you go through the house too. I dinged it a star in my rating, because it came with a scuff on the back and a scratch across the signature name plate. It also didn't come shipped with a power cord, so had to scrounge one up. Just minor stuff, the amp is built very well. Go get one and have fun!
