His resume is vastand varied, and boasts such names as Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Jean-Luc Ponty, Journey, Zucchero, Billy Cobham, Keith Richards, Aretha Franklin, Steve Lukather, Madonna, Herbie Hancock and many others. Randy has collaborated with Markbass to create this exceptional 1x15” cabinet.
TTE amps have now a new and very cool “Modern Vintage” design!
In the new TTE 501 Randy Jackson signature the current technology is brought together with classic tone concepts ito have an head that looks and sounds vintage—but features some special adaptations of the Markbass innovations like the Tube Technology Emulator (TTE), giving to the 500W amp power even more tubey warmth.
The TUBE HEART of the TTE 501 makes this head an incomparable vintage sounding amp!!!
Your sound comes into this beauty through an old-style tube preamp, is fed through a professional tube compressor, then a simple 3-band passive EQ section, a “Colour” filter (a tube adaptation of the famous Markbass VLE control), and then finally gets amplified by an innovative Tube Technology Emulator power amp.
But there's no better way to understand “Modern Vintage” than to plug in the amps and let the tone explains itself!
Minimum ohm load for all Markbass heads is 4 ohms.
Markbass amps/combos are manufactured to be sold and used in the country of purchase, and they are factory preset to that country’s voltage. Due to homologation issues, the voltage may not be changed.
