Markbass TA503 - now £400

As far as I know, this is the precursor to the current Little Mark series, and made in Italy unlike its modern contemporaries. It has a dual tube preamp and SS power amp with semi parametric EQ (one knob selects the specific frequency within a given band(bass, low mid, high mid, highs) and the other boasts or cuts it). Great sounding head, bucket loads of headroom and a really warm, natural sound. Two Speakon outputs, DI out and level, tuner, effects loop etc. These are currently out of production and don't come by too often. Used to be £1k+ when new and I'm asking for 500 Comes with case and I will be willing to ship.

Markbass NY122 - £450 SOLD



I'll post the head but I'd much prefer for the cab to be collected. It's currently based in Wrexham, North Wales but I can get it up to Leeds if necessary, and I'll travel a short distance of you want to meet me for it.

Can you advise what year the TA503 was made please. The month and year of manufacture are on a label on the rear face. Many thanks.

Is that an Italian-built 2x12 cab?
Thanks

No, as far as I can remember it's one of the newer models, and as of late most of their amps are produced in the Far East.

Certainly is a great amp, sounds fantastic. Just doesn’t really suit what I’m doing at the moment and I can’t justify have more than one amp at a time.
