Marcus Miller is renowned for his groundbreaking style and trademark sound, and Marco De Virgiliis is considered an innovator for introducing lightweight, portable, powerful and great-sounding bass heads and cabinets. The Markbass Little Marcus amps are the result of the meeting of these groundbreaking roads.
For Marco, it was exciting working and developing an amp for 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 it is dream coming true. And as Marcus says, "A lot of people have ideas, but being able to achieve the idea it's a whole another thing."
Marcus has close partnered with Marco to develop his amazing signature amps that not let you just sound like him, but they are able to cover all the different tones in your need, without limits.
The Little Marcus in fact not only suits Marcus' needs and taste, but is a great choice for every bassist who needs an 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 tailor your sound for any kind of genres and styles, and the two new Old School and Millerizer filters featured on EQ2 tailored together with Marcus allows to quick obtain a vintage tone or an amazing slap sound.
The Little Marcus 800 from Markbass features the same tone and controls as the 500W version, but houses its increased power level in a brushed aluminum housing. It boasts 800W of power output at 4 ohms (400 at 8 ohms), with two EQ channels. Channel 1 features controls for ultralow, low, mid, high mid and high, while Channel 2 is more streamlined with controls for Old School and Millerizer.
