Marshall Amplification displays its MB Series of bass amplifiers with eight featured models - four combos, one head and three extension cabinets. These units join the MB15 and MB30 models to provide bass players with Marshall's legendary power, sound and reliability. Developed and engineered by the company's world-renowned 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.
