Each MB Series bass amplifier features two channels: Classic and Modern. The Classic channel has independent controls for Volume and Gain, allowing the users to dial in exactly the amount of â€œgritâ€� desired for their tone. The Modern channel offers a crispness and crystal clarity that is ideal for slap and other modern styles. Both channels share a 3-band EQ. For increased tonal flexibility, the MB30 includes a three-position Voice Shift switch which accentuates/attenuates carefully selected frequencies.
In addition to a built-in limiter which works on both channels, the Modern channel of each amp boasts a built-in, variable Compressor. This features an LED indicator that glows green when the Compressor is switched on and red when the user-determined threshold is reached and the bass signal is being compressed.
Also included is Marshallâ€™s critically acclaimed Emulated Line Out, which provides an emulated line-level signal thatâ€™s ideal for live performance or direct recording. This highly accurate speaker emulation is also present on the headphone output of both MB combos.
