SNAMM08: More Marshall Bass Amps
MB150

Marshall Amplification is displaying its MB Series of bass amplifiers with eight featured models – four combos, one head and three extension cabinets. These new units join the MB15 and MB30 models. Developed and engineered by the company’s R&D department, the MB series is the result of end user feedback, plus stringent design, construction and quality control testing.
The new models are:
  • MB60 60-Watt, hybrid 1x12" combo
  • MB150 150-Watt, hybrid 1x15" combo
  • MB450H 450-Watt, hybrid head
  • MB4210 450-Watt, hybrid 2x10" combo
  • MB4410 450-Watt, hybrid 4x10" combo
  • MBC115 300-Watt, 1x15" bass reflex cabinet with H.F. horn
  • MBC410 600-Watt, 4x10" bass reflex cabinet with H.F. horn
  • MBC810 1200-Watt, 8x10" bass reflex cabinet with H.F. horn
Each new amp features two totally independent, footswitchable channels: Classic and Modern (a footswitch is supplied with each new 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 unique tonal options that are instantly accessible via the two-way footswitch. Combined Speakon/ jack sockets further add to the professional feature set of these three units.
