Designed by legendary bass soloist Jeff Berlin.
Jeff Berlin teamed up with Markbass to create this sweet signature bass combo amp, the CMD 151P. Jeff is a master bass soloist who has been playing with some of the greats for the past 30 years, including Isaac Hayes, Bill Buford, John Mclaughlin, and the Brecker Brothers, just to name a few.
Like the other CMD amp models, the 151 combo has a built-in Little Mark II preamp to help you achieve your own signature sound. The Markbass CMD 151 also has 4-band EQ and VLE (Vintage Loudspeaker Emulator) and VPF (Variable Pre-shape Filter) filters. Unlike other bass amplifiers, the Markbass CMD 151 has no tweeter. Jeff doesn't believe in them. And if you listen to any of his performances, you'll notice there's nothing missing in his sound. The 400W 15" B&C speaker will give you all the sound you need with a tone you'll find impeccably unique and warm. Just like Jeff Berlin's playing.

I must admit I'm a bit of a skeptic. To get past all the popular buzz and hype surrounding this brand, I had to play this equipment for myself. Surprisingly in the first few minutes, I found the claims to be completely justified. Without a doubt, this amp is the cleanest and most faithful bass reproduction of any bass amplifier I've experienced. Like most pro players, I have tried and probably owned about every high-end bass amp out there -- GK, Ampeg, SWR, Acoustic Image, etc. In my opinion, the Markbass CMD 151P is among the most accurate and pure bass amps on the market. As a jazz musician, I play both upright and electric bass. My upright bass with a Shadow pickup and onboard preamp sounds exactly the same as played acoustically... just louder when going through this amp. It's like plugging into my home stereo system. To date, no other amp has offered such purity of sound. When using this amp with my electric bass, the diversity of possible tones is amazing. It also works fantastic on slap & pop funk styles. There is absolutely no need for an added high-frequency horn to achieve a great percussive sound (Jeff Berlin is correct on this point). This is one of those rare pieces of gear that puts a smile on my face every time I use it. I could not be more pleased with my purchase... and it will probably be the last bass amp I ever buy. For a huge improvement in your sound, do your playing a big favor and check out Markbass gear for yourself. Although it is a bit pricey, this Markbass amp is truly professional equipment with an exceptional sound in a very transportable package.
The Jeff Berlin 300W 15 inch bass combo is incredible. Look no more, yes you can add a cabinet "if" you need to. EQ for your sound, and go to town. No other amplifier comes close. I have been playing bass for 30 years, and I still can't believe I can easily load it into my car, and make heads turn when I play. Recently played with a six piece horn band, and never went ove 5 on the master.
