> PRACTICAL SOLUTION FOR GIGGING BASSISTS
This rear-ported 2x10 combo is a great option for gigging bassists who love the attack and tone of 10” speakers, and the 300W@8ohm of its Ninja IV head are the perfect power to cover any kind of gigs by just with this combo without a big rig. But, for more volume and headroom, it does also match with any 8 ohm Markbass cabinet... giving you 500W@4ohm power!
> UPDATED 4 BAND EQ, OLD SCHOOL FILTER, 3 WAY SWITCH
Our updated 4 band EQ section features very effective controls allowing you to easily find the sound you want, boosting or cutting up to 16dB for each of the 4 bands to cover all the tonal nuances needed in any genre of music. Additionally the Old School filter cuts your high frequencies and gives a round and smooth tone. The 3 way rotary-switch allows you to choose between a super-balanced flat tone, a scooped preset that drops the mids while boosting the lows and highs - giving a superb slap sound, or lastly the 'FSW' option to control both mute and the Scooped EQ on demand by connecting an optional dual footswitch.
> 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.
The CMD NINJA 102P - 500 IV combo has a high-portable SIZE, and it weights only 36.15 lbs (16.4 Kg). Its sound is a professional sound, with amazing depth and great definition.
