Rating and Reviews: Marshall MB30 Bass Combo

Two channels let you select between a classic and contemporary tone while 30 Watts of power course through two 10 inch speakers for a clear and present sound.

Sound: Well, I bought this amp solely for studio work and of course to practise with at home. Not for stage use, 30 watts for bass is not enough for stage. Feature: Yes, great features. The modern channel which gives you a clear tone and the classic channel which is supposed to give a valve kind of sound. Although I am not a friend of distorted bass sounds, I must say that I do like the classic channel with the gain on 0 setting (fully counterclockwise) so I dont get too much distortion.I suggest to use the modern channel with an already "growly" Fender Precision and use the modern channel with a modern bass, for example a Warwick. The equalizer pots do what they say, great. Also the 3 voice shift settings make it easy to quickly find a sound you like, a sound you are looking for. I do not use the build in compressor. For home practise I don´t need it and in the studio...well... the are better options to compress the bass track. At the rear of the amp you find a send/return, a line out and a footswitch socket. The fact that these are jack sockets, not XLR´s does not disturb me. Ease of Use: Due to its extensive features and great sound possibilities this amp is easy to use, erg, makes it very easy to find the sound you are looking for. Quality: I have the amp since about 3 months, it still works, sounds good. Quality, well, time will tell but I think its a very good quality amp. Marshall usually does not produce rubbish. Value: I think this amp is of great value for home practise and in the studio. Manufacturer Support: Never needed Marshall support but I heard Marshall support is very good indeed. The Wow Factor: I wanted it - I have got it - I will keep it Overall: Overall.. I was really informing myself prior to the purchase of this amp. Besides the Marshall MB30 I had in mind to get one of these modeling amps .. but then .. I wanted an authentic analogue, not digital, bass sound, especially in the studio. So therefore I decided to get this Marshall. I think I made a good decision.
