The Markbass EVO1 head is the result of the mix between classic and advanced technology evolution to allow bassists to have not only just a 'gorgeous' bass sound, but always the 'right' sound... no matter which genres and techniques you're playing!!! It offers six AMPS tone choices for each of the two channels, clean and distorted.
Bass players have always been inspired by the possibility to mix two amplifiers tones and to blend clean and distorted sounds as Jaco Pastorius did back in the years. With the Markbass EVO 1 that's possible, opening many more sound options experimenting two amps playing simultaneously.
Both channels feature classic standard amp controls interface and one effect each (you can update AMPs and effects picking and downloading your favorite ones from our website), MIDI In port, on board tuner, aux in and headphones out, FX loops, XLR Line Outs, and a powerful 500W MPT (Mark Proprietary Technology) power amp.
EVO 1 Software
You can update AMPs choices on each channel at your preference thanks to the MARKBASS EVO 1 SOFTWARE, that also allows to update FX choices for each channel and customize their parameters, plus you can set the Boost level that can be switched on/off via MIDI.
The optional Markbass EVO 1 CONTROLLER allows to engage CH1 / CH2 or MIX both, turn on/off the FX1, FX2 and BOOST, plus accessing the TUNER with MUTE function pressing and holding the boost switch. The Markbass EVO 1 can be controlled also via programmable MIDI pedalboard.
