Amplifiers & Effects
When Markbass founder Marco De Virgiliis started to assemble his dream team back in 1996, there was no telling just how favored his amplifiers would become throughout the music industry. By the time the company took off in 2001, it didn't take long before Markbass amps were the go-to choice of many top-recording artists. From Behemoth's Tomasz "Orion" Wroblewski to Supertramp's Cliff Hugo, Markbass amps are used by everyone who craves a powerful and punchy tone when they're keeping the groove.
Whether you're a veteran of the stage or a hobbyist who enjoys weekend jams with friends, Markbass has an amplifier for every application and budget. For a killer combo that's compact yet still packs a wallop, check out the CMD 121H 300/500W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp. A best seller, this amp boasts pro-quality sound from a unit that weighs under 40 pounds and stands at under 2 feet. Of course, you don't need to worry about volume, for this little monster's 12" B&C woofer and 1" compress driver with custom horn will deliver more than enough oomph.
In addition to bass combos, heads and cabinets, Markbass also specializes in acoustic amplifiers. Incorporating several features that are in high-demand amongst professional musicians, the Markacoustic AC601 Acoustic Combo Amp was designed to amplify a wide range of instruments, including guitars, mandolins, violins, cellos and banjos. Featuring anti-feedback and phase reverse controls, this amp's clear and defined tone makes it ideal for pub and coffee house performances.
And to say that this catalog stretches far beyond these two examples would be an understatement. Markbass has so many top-rated amplifiers, you owe it to yourself to spend some time in this section and explore every one of their options. After all, Markbass is one of the most trusted amplifier manufacturers in the world today, and playing through one of their models will have your musical talents recognized in no time.
