The NANO MARK II has evolved from our Nano Mark 300 amplifier, adding many useful features. It keeps the same powerful sound in an ultra-compact size and same lightweight package of its famous predecessor (only 3.20lbs/1.45 kg). The new bi-band limiter featured on this amp responds faster and more dynamically to your playing, giving a more natural sound. Plus, thanks to an optional single footswitch you can easily have access to a scooped-mid EQ setting and quickly get a tight tone for slap or pick bass!
> Power-to-weight ratio / ultra-portable amp
NANO MARK II is a professional grade amp weighing only 3.20 lbs / 1.45 kg and has an unbelievable power-to-weight ratio with 300W from its MPT power amp in a remarkably small and lightweight package. This amp is perfect for bassists searching for portability without sacrificing the rich and warm tones unique to Markbass.
> Simple design
This amp is ideal or those who need a myriad of tone shaping on the go. Thanks to its simple and effective controls you can get a clear, loud, defined EQ resulting in an authentic reproduction of your bass guitar's sound. Scooped-mid EQ ideal for slap and pick bass tones are available using an optional single footswitch connected to the dedicated input on the rear panel.
> Bi-band limiter
Our new bi-band limiter responds faster and more dynamically to your playing than traditional limiters do and lets your high end "breathe" for a more natural sound. It makes our amp heads the best choice for anyone who enjoys a quick, punchy attack at high volumes.
> MPT - MARK PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY
Many other bass amps on the market use power amps that are not specifically designed for bass. At Markbass, Marco De Virgiliis invested heavily in R&D to develop a proprietary power amp technology in house. When compared against the competition, all Markbass amps feel unique, with a more defined sound and more power. Our MPT power amp was built from the ground up to respect and elevate the inherent tone of your instrument.
