TA 501
This popular head helps smooth out your sound with a high-quality onboard tube compressor, featuring a JJ Electronics ECC81 tube. Tone-wise, your sound is warmed up nicely by the tube even when the compressor is off. Bonus features include foot-switchable mute-to-tune and EQ bypass!
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.

Rack ear kit included.
