Overview

The Markbass Mini CMD 121P is a bass combo amplifier that gives you fat sound with electric or acoustic basses. That makes the Mini CMD 121P amp perfect for rehearsal studios or small club applications. The Markbass Mini CMD 121P comes with a built-in Little Mark II bass head in the top rear area. Bassists will appreciate the Markbass-designed Vintage Loudspeaker Emulator and Variable Pre-shape Filter which help give this Mini CMD a warm natural sound. The Little Mark II also has a Neutrik Speakon combo jack output that accepts both Speakon or 1/4" speaker cable as well as a second 1/4" speaker out jack so you can hook up to another 8 ohm cab for a 500W rig. You'll also find a balanced XLR out, unbalanced tuner out so you can tune as you play without passing your signal through pedals. A Send and Return Effect loop protects you from losing your signal if one of your pedals dies or a cable in the chain gives out.

As I approach my golden years (and continue gigging), the SVT is just not gonna work for me. Heard about Markbass in Bass Player, and bought it on a gamble. It is perfect for club gigs, gyms, even outdoor gigs. Recently a guy came out of the audience and said "Hey man, it kills me to say this 'cause I'm a bass player, but you're too loud!" Although the tone is not as good as a bigger cab, I gladly make the tradeoff for the ridiculous ease of transport - I can go from car to stage with all my gear in one trip. Need more power? Go through the board.

I purchased this amp 3.5 years ago with the procoverage. I bought it for the same reasons you are looking at it (light weight,sounds good,enough power for most of the venues we play). What I didnt know is the class D switch mode amps are less stable and in particular using this amp with the perfectly matched Markbass 1x15 ext cab led to the amp blowing two fuses and never coming on again. In order to service the amp under warranty you have to ship it CA (only one place services warranty claims) out side of warranty only a select few service centers exist and I had to ship from MA to NY. It took 2 months to get it back due to back order of parts. Cost over $300 to fix. The repair center explained it's a common problem due to design flaw and have communicated this to Mark Bass. I have lost confidence in the amp which is not a good thing when your gigging and count on it to work. Do your home work, check the Bass forums, google it as you are likely to encounter an issue eventually. Very disappointed with Mark Bass as a company and will never buy their products again!

A great powerful little bass amp

By Bassman

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 121P 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

This little MarkBass captures the 70's bass sound and sounds like a bass amp should with deep growling lows. I've had an Ampeg, Fender, Eden and Phil Jones - the MarkBass is incredible and blows away the others. For the first time the band can hear the bass. This little amp keeps up with a five piece band.

Little Mega Amp!!

By Paul S.

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 121P 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

I recently bought this amp at the store earlier. I was blown away how this small amp can whip out 300W. Its size is just 2x the volume of a 15W fender rumble. This amp is perfect for a bassist like me starting off playing in small gigs. I'm really impressed because it is lightweight compared to my other choice which is a 300W G-K amp which is probably 2x as big and heavy.

Everything I hoped for

By Jerry R.

from Tennessee

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 121P 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

I shopped a long time looking for a lightweight, powerful combo or head & cabinet. At 30 lbs, we have a winner. My first jam with the Mini CMD 121P and I was convinced. A lot of different tones inside. Easy to haul & plenty of power. If you need more sound, get the ext cab. More than happy with it.

This amp gets a WOW!!!!

By Don

from Indiana

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 121P 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

Traded in a Hartke 3500 head on this little powerhouse combo. It does everything I could want from a combo twice its size. I play a variety of music from classic rock to country and beyond and it obtains all the sounds with its tone and filter controls. It fills the smaller venues by itself and gets direct lined at larger venues. It is a back saver with its light weight and very compact size. Only thing I would add would be a built in compressor. I have had it several months and have NO complaints. I cant believe I am playing thru such a small unit as this coming from the days of Acoustic 360s and Sunn Coliseum Mega amps that were as tall as I am. Great job Markbass for making a great small amp that is easy to carry and sounds great and looks unique!

Five star to say the least

By Bacco The Bassman

from Voorheesville, New York

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 121P 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

Incredible sound and power and oh did I mention it weighs less than 30 lbs. ? I use this combo for most of my gigs (inside,or outside !!!) My bandmates not only get angry to tell me "YOU'RE TOO, LOUD !!! but they also get mad at me when I just pick it up like a lunch pail after the gig is done. The sound though is most impressive while truly and simply amplifying the natural sound of your bass with power and clarity. I also use it in conjunction w/the markbass 2x10 ext. whoa, look out !!! All I can suggest is "get rid of all the other bass amplification" because Markbass is all you will ever need. The price may seem high but it is by far the best value for your money that you could ever invest in musical equipment. I cannot recommend this product strongly enough.

Super Clean, Crisp !! All you need for practice or gigs

By Suicide Driver

from Tolleson Arizona

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 121P 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

I have actually owned this amp for a year now. I wanted to wait for the review so all the new wears off and I can give an honest opinion on how it holds up to being shuffled around from home to gig and back. This this is amazing!! Out of the box ready for practice or gigs. I originally bought this to practive with but as I getting huge complements on it's sound and how powerfull it was I decided to use it at a small gig. It held up perfect on it's own no need to run through house speakers. The sound was loud, crisp and clear cutting through a 5 piece country band. I recommend this for anyone serious about having a very versitily practice / small gig amp. No issues at all with this cutting out or not working. I have never had a problem with this amp at all. WELL WORTH THE 900 PRICE TAG !! Buy with no regrets and enjoy!

The best sounding combo amp on the market!

By Ryan

from newark, nj

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 121P 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

I am using this with a fender jass bass and the tone is amazing. It is also very loud. I am in a band with 2 guitars drums and keyboard and if i want to i can be the loudest. It is very small and light.

This little amp is a total surprise!

By Jimmy Z

from Middletown, IN

Comments about Markbass Mini CMD 121P 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

I can no longer manage the weight of big combo amps or cabs so I wanted something small, lightweight but powerfull. When I received this amp I was very surprised at how light it actually is. When I plugged it in with my P bass I was even more surprised at how good it sounds. When I turned it up, another surprise. This thing will rock! Great growl and good quick attack with the 12" speaker. You can gig with this thing and it's easy to carry. I highly recommend this amp!
