Markbass CMD 102P
Transistor combo amp for bass 400W into 8 ohms, with the distinction of having the speakers with neodymium magnetic mass much lighter than ordinary magnetic masses.

Connectors: 1 Input Jack 6.35, 1 XLR input for mic bass Acoustic (ingénieux!)
1 Line output XLR, 1 Output Jack Speakers 6.35 per additional.

Adjustment: Gain (preamp volume) with LED peak signal, Eq: Low, Mid Low, Mid, Hi, Treeble, 2 filter (1 typed "vintage" and other "modern"), 1 master volume. All very effective ...


The configuration is simple, the only parameter which must be respected is to preset the gain of the preamp and verify that even in cases of violent attack on your instrument preamp does not saturate. (Thank the little blue LED). Mount the master and that you use this setting sparingly! Set your equation to your tastes, and drive small cars ...


I play mainly Rock (Melvins), I use an Ibanez bass Active 5cordes (elec Bartolini) and a Pod XT Live Pro for color and boost the sound, even with this configuration guitarist plugged Messa Boogie Triple correct one, do not question the evil power, high-volume repetition with a real punch to the battery I rarely exceeds 10H with knobs.
The sound is very warm with powerful bass and midrange and treble to the tweeter through property restitution incorporate


It is now more of a I use an Ampeg I tried in the same range and although I was not Ashanti. And it's incredible weight issue, while bassists know the issue of adequate weight / power amplifier for low MarkBass can claim to have redefined the standard in this area (my back thank them) and value price has not even been assigned, then why not?! Go ahead ...

Markbass CMD 102P
Transistor amplifier

280wat in 400 in 8ohm 4ohm

rglage: gain bass mid low mid, treble, master and two filters. Between one quarter and balanced input


Trs simple configuration
Having a sound? Pressing ON and you will see, is to have a good low round is played. bass, a little adjustment but easier than many other

The manual résumé everything you read about the amp


My style of music is rather large: jazz, rock, latin, pop, funk and this bte should know and accommodate all these styles.

I play with a Peavey Cirrus 5 string


I have this amp for a week. I used the pro-svt4 with 4x10 before but ouch, it's too big and too heavy for what it intends. Markbass, I think, won the Palme d'Or for the quality of their amps and like anything, the quality has a price! I strongly recommends this amplifier.

Markbass CMD 102P
Combo 2x10 "+ tweeter piezo, and 280W/8ohms 450W/4ohms. Pramp. And amp transistor. The bottom of the table is brushed see all the other opinions of this amp or those of the t te Little Mark II is the same thing. They put the head in a cabinet in fact.

Note 10 for me who likes the simplicity and efficiency.


Config. simple cry of (jack + XLR) / EQ / VLE / VPF / Master volume.

This gives a sound in two milliseconds, this means that the base is put all potarts EQ noon, the VLE and VPF 0 (if they start working, since they are filters 0 100%).

The manual is succinct but clear. He announced the obviousness that the EQ of the amp is not an absolute that correct the default of a pice o sound is played, not to tamper with the sound excessive (even if it can be done, no one allowed). The worst is that it works.

Note 10 for re-simplicity.


Suitable styles and moult moult low.

I saw a guy playing with LMII + + 104HF 115HF. It is standard: large, feed, consisting, Defines, powerful. But never harsh.

I saw another guy playing with F1 + 2x112. It pulsates in a serious void of local rpt 12m. It can also make your ears bleed.

I also saw myself playing this same combo with the 104HF of the same brand. b as a pulse, even if has lacked a little fat, too many 10 "kills 10", ultra-parcontre mga Submitted Dfine and held with a serious high, had really push for the HP tailgating.

I play with a 5-string Sandberg California JassBass-like force in Delano, and a Warwick Thumb LTD2001.

This amp reproduces all CHARACTERISTICS instruments that branch into it. If you plug in a stew, you'll have a beautiful sound ... of stew. If you plug the right, you'll have a good sound from your trs good bass. Markbass 2x10 color the sound a bit in that mdiums "projtent" a little, but it does not affect the quality of the sound that emerges. Mix in a group there are 0 default. Can not told me as well every time and with all groups in which I have with jou.

I love the sounds all come out of this amp, and those I do not like are those when it is dyed.


Used for about a year. Default 0, 0 problem. What I like most about this amp is the concept of the maximum weight for mini, mini to maxi rglage versatility.

The trick rdibhitoire according to some, the color can not please everyone (ayaaaa it's true: it is neither clear nor dark gray black!). But hey it's not a painting or a jacket, it's an amp, it is used with the ears what ... not with the eyes.

Other models tested before the purchase: Trace Elliot (bifbof), Roland (bifbof), Fender (I understand why they make bass amps), Warwick, Hartke (bifbofbifbof), SWR (dpend of range of test and what amp cabinet).

Report quality price: I would say price-performance ratio: each (beautiful) watt that comes out of this amp MRIT the euro put into it. Pricing not abusive or assumes. I prcise that I bought new in-store Marseille with a small% of rduction (nothing to break a duck legs).

I do not have that choice would do dj because I have this amp, and two amps is such a thing. But j'achterais an extension cabinet for combos is Markbass sr, or I will pass a config. more manly in this brand why not, if one day I'm in tune pt.

Markbass CMD 102P
Transistor amplifier
280 W into 8 Ohms
500 W into 4 Ohms (with a REALLY sends a 2X15 timber)
Connectivity between TRS complte between XLR jack effects loop, tuner out, XLR DI out (Gnial) 2 HP a normal Jack, and Jack / Speakon that accepts two conections.
Gain between Del Rglages with Clip, equalo bass mid bass, mid high, high, two filters markbass (1 that cuts the treble and one that cuts mdium and boost the high and low ex: Slap her)
No deffets.

We have an AIM adjustable effects loop.
We have an AIM rglage on the tweeter. bzz that just a low volume dailleurs.

We love the XLR DI output with the sound that kills. With a you become the best friend of sound engineers concert halls! : D: D
We love the 20 pounds and the real power comes out of two small 10 inches.


Simple configuration, but we can tweak what's good is that, leaving everything flat on adjacent sound crazy. I use it with a Jazzbass Marcus Miller, I cut a little treble to bass and Lampl, a lightweight on low boost and mdium hop sounds.

Better a good bass for this amp, bass crap has made a terrible.

Its not very hot I must admit, but hey I was looking for a very funk and got exactly what I wanted. Note that I never reached my sound to another amp and I tried the Fender, Ampeg, Gallien Kruger, trace elliot, Epiphany, etc ...

I have not tried eden / nemesis so I could not compare. Otherwise this little combo jpense overshadows has many config in the competition. Report Qualit Price was very good although still quite expensive. Try doccaz Toper (aa lair fawn all pretty indestructible as long as it takes a little care)


Funk: Gnial

Rock: All right, can be lacking a bit of vintage and filthy in her (if you like the ampeg sound, go your way)

Dub reggae: Should do well even if I am not too adept.

I prcise again it is the only amp or I could get my sound (which made me buy it)


I would do the purchase, of course! I got a 850 euros OCCAZ in state nickel. I play with from four months. He saw a dozen concerts, many rpeter, never flinched. Nothing to report since no portard that crackles, the carpet is much dust, transport conditions not always top ... etc. Good investment.

20 pound, ultra portable, very powerful, reliable, 200% guaranteed to have the sound RPET, in concert, and at home if one has comprhensifs neighbors.

Excellent price to quality ratio OCCAZ, only nine very good; D
I put 9 because if it had GPS and grill bread would best t:
No adjustable tweeter (VLE but the filter is a bit the same job that attnuation tweeter)
Not adjustable effects loop (but it's rare I must admit)

vinie31's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Markbass CMD 102P
Bass combo transistor.
280W into 8 ohms (thus with the original cabinet)
450W into 4 ohms (if we add an 8 ohm speaker)
HP 400 watt bass reflex ... Really big infra bass.
HP Output jack and speak it. Sorites XLR ... all it takes.
Very large power.
20 Kg


Setup could not be more simple. Put all knob equalization in neutral and play. The key is to have a good bass for this amp transcribed what comes out of the jack. You can not cheat ... Manual in English even though the amp is Italian.


Perfect for all styles ... Funk for me.
My bass is an Alembic with a very good sound but I also tried it with a Jazz bass ... I WANT A result JAZZ BASS.


What I like most was the sound and weight. 20 kg 280W for real ... I like the look but not the opinion of everyone (my ex guitarist).
The finish is not too bad no more ... a few drips of glue if you look in the vents (but I Motes). Amp handmade in Italy ... Was almost an amp maker
This is not seen in the pictures he has a form of return (cutaway) and it is tilting. Super convenient!
If I have one criticism: the tweeter can be a blast.

For me good value for money power to weight, even if one is expensive ... But the amp has high-end so you have to compare it with the ampeg, SWR, Eden ... This choice I would do without hesitation.
