The Marcus Limited 250 is a smart, inexpensive option with great value for those who want the wide range of tones and portability of the Marcus Limited heads but don't need the full power of a 500W head. It's great for practicing, rehearsing, and small/medium gigs.

Key Features

  • NEW tone setting - The Marcus Limited has simple, intuitive and effective controls as on the Little Marcus heads, with best tone choices thanks to the five bands on EQ1, from ULTRALOW to HIGH. An improved versatility is provided by a new tone setting tuned to offer a more defined, rich and dynamic sound that easily cuts in the mix.

  • NEW EQ2 with PARAMETRIC EQ - A parametric EQ control has been added to the Old School filter on EQ2, allowing to get a wider range of tone. The two EQ sections can give you ANY TONE you need, no limits! EQ1 and EQ2 are footswitchable, plus the Little Marcus features a MUTE switch on the front panel.

  • Gold Line Top Features - As in the Gold Line series, the Marcus Limited features gold plated circuits and top quality selected components, providing the purest and cleanest sound you can imagine.

  • Size/Weight - The Marcus Limited features the same compact SIZE and light WEIGHT of all the Little Marcus family heads.

  • Mark Proprietary Technology (MPT) - About all the bass amps on the market use the same power amp from different manufacturers, which are not specificically designed for bass. At Markbass, Marco De Virgiliis invested a lot on R&D to create a proprietary power amp technology, specifically designed to respect and glorify the tone of your instrument.
