Key points

The Little Mark Vintage features a 12AX7 Tube Preamp, for a rich and warm tone full of harmonics.

The new Limiter Control offers a modern reaction when you set it all the way up, put it down to zero to create that old school gritty drive, and everything in between!

The new EQ settings and filter Switch. The 4 Bands EQ of the Little Mark Vintage have a new setting on frequencies centre, all tuned to offer a balanced tone that easily sits in the mix, plus a switch with three EQ preset options to give you a FLAT setting, a CUT one with scooped Mids and enhanced Low and High and an OLD one with scooped High to get an old vintage style tone.

A Real DI box! The Balanced DI Out with transformer is optimized to give pure, full, rich, linear sound on all frequencies. Although Little Mark amp heads already feature high-quality DI circuitry, the transformer upgrades the DI performance offering a real DI box inside the head, handling extreme transients without introducing any distortion or coloration.

Foot-switchable Mute has been one of the most requested features in order to tune or switch an instrument in a silent way. The optional Dual Footswitch also allows to turn the EQ section on and off.

MPT - Mark Proprietary Technology. Nearly all the other bass amps on the market use the same power amps from different manufacturers, which have not been specifically designed for bass. At Markbass, Marco De Virgiliis invested a lot on R&D to create their own proprietary power amp technology, specifically designed to respect and glorify the tone of your instrument.
