Markbass 1x12 Amplifiers & Effects
It takes a lot for an amp manufacturer to be as renowned and celebrated as Markbass. Their steady dedication to all things bass guitar has made them a favorite of musicians all over the world, and they're known for bringing in the best talent to contribute to designing and building their gear. That's why Cliff Hugo of Supertramp told Markbass' founder, Marco De Virgiliis, "You transfer the quality of your people into the products you make!" If you want to see that quality in action, you've come to the right place - this selection of Markbass amplifiers and effects has a wide range of options to accommodate any bassist's needs with world-class performance.
Is it an amp you're after? In that case, the first and most important decision to make is whether to go for a combo amplifier or an amp head and cabinets. Combo units like the Markbass CMD 102P 300/500W 2x10 Tilt-Back Bass Combo Amp are excellent for small to medium-sized venues since setup time is minimal - plus, this particular model features a tilt-back cabinet that allows it to double as a monitor in larger venues, working in tandem with a house sound system. If an amp head is more your style, whether it's to feed front-end speakers, your own cabinets or a recording rig, Markbass has lots of fantastic units to choose from, as well as the speakers to plug into them.
Of course, bassists don't live by amps alone, and to shape the finer details of your signature bass tone, you'll probably want a few effects units in your stage setup as well. These can vary quite a lot, and there are even some exotic options, like the tube-powered Markbass Compressore Tube Bass Compressor Pedal and the high-tech Markbass Super Synth Bass Pedal. You'll find plenty more where those came from, too, including EQ, boost, distortion and more.
No matter what level of performance you want to get out of your bass, this lineup of Markbass amplifiers and effects has all the equipment you need to achieve it (short of the bass itself, of course). From the compact Markbass Micromark 801 60W 1x8 Bass Combo Amp to the gargantuan Markbass Standard 108HR 1200W 8x10 Bass Speaker Cabinet and an assortment of heads to power it and effects to spice things up, the configuration of your dreams is well within your reach here.
