Markbass has announced its new lineup of bass amplification products for 2010, recently showcased at the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California.

Amp Heads
The MoMark SA 500 is a 500W solid-state/analog head with the same features as its predecessor, the SA 450. The MoMark SD 800 is a modular version of the SD 800 (solid-state head with an 800W digital power amp), the MoMark TA 500 has a tube preamp with a mute switch and a 500W analog power amp, and the MoMark LMK replaces the two-channel, 500W LMK head.

The Little Mark II (and now Little Mark III) has always been a popular choice for rock bassists. So, joining the Little Mark family this year is the Little Mark Rocker 500.

MoMark Modules
This year there are two new modules that give MoMark users some great new options. The Acoustic In preamp module is designed especially for acoustic instruments, and features two inputs with separate gain controls (one 1/4", one combo XLR/1/4") and switchable 48V phantom power. Sliding one of these preamps into any MoMark head transforms it into an acoustic amplifier.

The EQ 44S-HE module features four bands of semi-parametric EQ, top-end internal components and gold connectors.

Alain Caron Signature Model Stereo Preamp and Powered Cabinet
Markbass artist and bass player Alain Caron has teamed up with Marco De Virgiliis to design a signature model stereo preamp and powered cabinet. The BAS 121 is a 700W powered cabinet with a custom 12" woofer, a 6" mid-range speaker and a 1.25" compression driver and custom horn. The cab is designed to produce a very flat response, the company says.

Alain uses stereo effects, so he uses two cabinets and needs a stereo preamp to use stereo effects. So the Ground Stereo Pre has been designed as a stereo preamp in foot pedal form, with several ins and outs, and four-band EQ for each channel. The pedal can also store EQ presets created with the cabinet software, allowing you to change your cabinet tunings on the fly without a computer, Markbass says.

Accessories
Four new Markbass accessories are designed to improve the lives of bass players:
  • The Bass Bag 24 is like a gig bag and overnight bag in one—it has room for either two basses, or one bass and clothing, accessories, laptop computer, etc.
  • Since Little Mark heads are small and it doesn't make sense to put them in a traditional-sized rack case, there is now a little-sized Hard case for the Little Mark Series
  • The Super MoMark Bag is a knapsack-style amp bag with enough storage room for two heads, or a head and a laptop, charts, cables, effects, extra modules, and more
  • The Super DI Transformer is designed to allow you to upgrade a Little Mark DI output with a DI—it's essentially like putting a Super Pro DI Box inside your amp, Markbass says
