This Signature Markbass Amp Head not only delivers Marcus’s specific needs and taste, but covers all the different tones you need for the ultimate performance. Its amazing clear definition, punch, and dynamics suits a wide selection of playing style, while respecting the priority of tone for the perfect playing feel. The addition of an FX loop lets players connect their favourite stompboxes to expand its tonal possibilities, while the footswitch input provides external control over the amp’s functions. The Little Marcus also features a Speakon/1/4’’ Jack combo speaker output, allowing you to connect the amp head to a wide range of speaker cabinets, while its XLR line out offers direct recording into your chosen device.
The Little Marcus Amp Head is equipped with two powerful EQ sections, offering incredible tone shaping capabilities to accommodate any kind of musical genre and playing style. EQ1 features a 5-band EQ section, allowing players to adjust everything from the ultralow frequencies all the way to the high frequencies. The EQ2 section features two controls for the Old School and Millerizer filters, allowing players to tailor their tone with either a vintage or an amazing slap tonality. Experiment with the Old School control to bypass the low-frequencies and create a bright, Motown-like sound, or play with the Millerizer control to add a nice mid-range focus ideal for solos to cut through dense mixes.
