Excellent sound controls, quality speakers, and a solid design.

The Markbass CMD 102P is a tilt-back bass combo amplifier that has a built-in Little Mark II solid state preamp to give you more power. To help shape your sound, the CMD 102P bass amp gives you a 4-band EQ, as well as VLE (Vintage Loudspeaker Emulator) and VPF (Variable Pre-shape Filter) filters for control.

The Markbass CMD 102P amp's I/O includes an input that can handle both passive and active basses, and extra XLR balanced input for double bass pickups, Neutrik Speakon Combo out jacks for use with 1/4" or Speakon speaker cables, a tuner out jack for sending unbalanced signals to a tuner, amp, or other recording equipment, and Send and Return Effect jacks to ensure your main signal continues even if something dies in your effects chain. This versatile bass combo has an angled cabinet so that you can use it as a floor model or in the more traditional vertical position. Either way, you're going to get a warm, natural sound from the 2 B&C 10" speakers and the piezo tweeter. And if you add an external cab via the outputs, the CMD 102P combo amp will give you enough sound to fill a large venue with headroom to spare.

  • Great amp best sound

    As reviewed by Ron Mead on 2/20/2010

    I needed a cabinet that I could move without breaking my back. Moving this amp is a dream. I have played through many amps including 60's amps in the 60's. The tube emulator sounds a lot like the sound we use to get from the tube amps. Lots of different sounds. Great punch and low end.

  • Tight sound

    As reviewed by Steve Watkins on 4/4/2010

    I looked at the amp and compared it to alot of other brands. There are a lot of reviews but most either mention the Mark Bass Combo or say this is going to be the last amp they buy. I have found that the sound enhances the whole band. It's harmonic spectrum flows in with the other instruments perfect.When there is an accent you not only feel it in the bass but in the whole group of instruments. The thing is that the corners are not fully protected and this will cause unwanted wear and tear on the cosmetics. Also just plugging in the power cord is difficult. I tried and asked my fellow band member to plug the cord in the back. I of course can be done but it is a knuckle buster......Love the sound! 40 years as a bass player...

  • Awesome sound

    As reviewed by Wayne on 9/23/2010

    I just purchased this amp last weekend, and WOW ! This little monster really sings. The power is great, the tone is sweet. I think if you are playing in a Med to Large venue, you will need an extension cab unless you go through the board. My son usually stays upstairs in his room while we practice, and after Sundays practice he came down and told me he could hear a big difference in my tone. He said he could hear every note I hit. Whereas before, it sounded more muddy. Try one out, you will love it !
