Little Marcus 500
When Markbass’ Top-Artist MARCUS MILLER announced at NAMM 17 he was joining forces with Markbass, he said him and Marco De Virgiliis were looking forward to doing some very cool things together the same year… they kept their promise!
Marcus Miller is renowned for his groundbreaking style and trademark sound, and Marco De Virgiliis is considered an innovator being the first pioneer introducing lightweight, portable, powerful and great sounding bass heads and cabinets. The Marcus Miller signature series is the result of the meeting of these groundbreaking roads.
It has been really exciting for Marco working and developing a series of products with Marcus, as since the moment he started building his very first amp he has been thinking about him. It’s not just an endorsement but a dream coming true.
Markbass have 100% satisfied him and everyone will immediately recognize his sound in every product of his signature lineup!
“I can immediately get my sound from my “Little Marcus” signature heads. But these amps not only let you sound like me, thanks to the five band EQ and the new “Old School” and “Millerizer” filters, you can get ANY tone you need, no limits!!!”
The LITTLE MARCUS infact only suits Marcus needs and taste, but is a great choice for every bassist who needs a head amp with an amazing clear definition, punch and dynamic, respecting the priority of tone like all the Little Mark heads.
It offers simple and very effective controls on EQ1 to taylor your sound for any kind of genres and styles, and the two new Old School and Millerizer filters featured on EQ2 taylored together with Marcus allows to quick obtain a vintage tone or an amazing slap sound.
