Small in size, but large in sound and shaping options.

The Markbass CMD 151P is a bass combo amplifier equipped with Markbass' flagship solid state preamp, the Little Mark II. Despite being a Mini model, the CMD 151P amp gives you maximum power and sound. The amp provides plenty of power to blow through the high-quality 15" B&C woofer and piezo tweeter. The CMD 151P also has 2 speaker outs which allow you to hook up to another 8 ohm extension cab, giving you a 500W rig! 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.

  • Best Bass Amp I've Ever Had!

    As reviewed by Lance Bakemeyer - Hillbilly Hellcats on 5/30/2010

    My partner in the Hillbilly Hellcats purchased the 12" Markbass model after a recommendation by a standup bass Jazz player. I tried it out and also we have used it for "fly-in" tours. The 12" model weighs 21 pounds and is not considered overweight or oversize luggage. I decided to try out the 15" model and A/B'd the two. I discovered that the 15" model was even better, and it still only weighs 41 lbs. (Still Flyable). I bought the 15" model and it sounds great with all of my standup slap basses (3). Plenty of power and sounds very good with all dials (EQ) at 12 o'clock. I believe that because these amps are made in Italy, and because there is more interest in standup bass in Europe that these amps are perfect for Jazz, Rockabilly slap and Roots Rock styles. I also have a 1969 Ampeg all tube SVT and a late 1990's SWR that I use with 2 4x10 Ampeg speaker cabs. I am convinced that the 15" Markbass sounds just as good if not better. No more having to get help from the drummer or a fan to carry my 15" Markbass amp in the club!

  • Versatile, Loud, and Fits in the Trunk

    As reviewed by Patrick on 9/12/2009

    I coveted this amp for a long time before pulling the trigger. My only regret is that I waited so long. It's plenty of volume for most settings and where I might need more volume there's a built-in line out. There's plenty of punch when I need it and it can get really warm, too. I can't get over the size! The Jeff Berlin is a little cheaper and the controls are little more accessible on the front, but I'm glad I went with the smaller size of this one.

  • massive sound - little package

    As reviewed by Paul Amaral on 3/29/2011

    I've had just about every serious bass amp out there from a real B15 PortaFlex a Kustom (tuck & roll) 200, an Acoustic 371 Randalls , Traynors, Yorks and Bassmans. Now I can save my back and still get heard! I recently played a fusion gig with 9 piece drums, percussionist, guitar through a large Line6, piano and sax blowin' thru the 600W PA. Someone in the back asked if I was taxing the the PA with my bass. Answer? "what PA?" I'm just going thru my MarkBass mini 15. Serious kick per pound!
