Big-time, fat output from a bass combo weighing less than 30 lb!

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.

  • Perfect for Geezers!

    As reviewed by Uh, the name is Peetsie, baby. on 10/6/2008

    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.

  • A great powerful little bass amp

    As reviewed by Bassman on 9/16/2008

    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!!

    As reviewed by Paul S. on 6/12/2008

    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.
