The Markbass CMB 101 Black Line brings the famous Markbass sound to an amazingly affordable price. The CMB 101 combo amp delivers superior tone compared to other practice amps, packing Markbass' signature purity and response into a convenient 1x10 40W package. Designed with students and beginners in mind, it's the perfect amp to start developing your talent and passion for music.

Shape Your Sound With Simple and Effective Tone Controls

Dial in your ideal practice tone with the CMB 101 Black Line's intuitive 4-band EQ, featuring dedicated low and high midrange knobs for shaping your fundamental frequencies. Kick in the Scooped switch to add brilliance and bite to the highs or hit the Boost switch to fatten up the lows with some warm tube-like saturation. Having responsive tone-shaping at your fingertips inspires you to experiment and develop your own signature sound.

Jam Along Silently With Headphone Out

Plug your headphones into the dedicated headphone output and rock out to your heart's content, without disturbing others. The CMB 101 Black Line combo faithfully recreates the Markbass magic right in your headphones, so you can practice unplugged anywhere, anytime. Develop your playing technique and get lost in the music, whether you're in your bedroom, backstage or on the tour bus.

Mix In Media Playback With AUX Input

Connect your smartphone, tablet or MP3 player to the AUX input, and mix in your favorite backing tracks or songs with your bass tone. This makes practice sessions more fun and inspiring. Dial in just the right blend of playback and your own sound via the CMB 101 Black Line's master volume knob.

Connect to PA Systems With Preamp Out

When you're ready to jam with your band or perform live, just connect the combo's preamp out to a PA system or mixer. The CMB 101 Black Line provides the great Markbass sound on stage or in the rehearsal room. The unbalanced preamp out captures the preamp tone, allowing you to send a strong signal to the front of house.
