Each amp features two totally independent, footswitchable channels: Classic and Modern (a footswitch is supplied with each model). The Modern channel offers a crispness and crystal clarity that is ideal for slap and other modern styles, as well as a built-in, variable compressor. The Classic channel boasts an ECC83 preamp tube and features a Gain control plus a Boost switch, allowing users to dial in exactly the amount of "grit" desired for their tone. To further enhance the tonal versatility of these two channels, the active 3-band EQ on the Modern channel features semi-parametric Mid controls while the passive 3-band EQ on the Classic channel features an adjustable, 3-way mid Voice control.
Additional features provide advanced functionality for today's bass player: a series FX loop, Passive/Active input selection, XLR DI line out (pre or post), built-in limiter, CD/MP3 input and a headphone jack for silent practice.
The MB450H, MB4210 and MB4410 models also offer a footswitchable channel blend facility that has controls for both Blend and Volume, giving the user three tonal options that areaccessible via the two-way footswitch.
