Markbass TTE 501 Randy Jackson Signature Bass Head Overview :
New and very cool “Modern Vintage” design for the TTE amps!
The TTE 501 Randy Jackson signature is the amp of choice for those who want a warm vintage tone with stadium-rocking power. As with the 500W version, the TTE 501's vintage vibe was carefully engineered with features such as an classic-style tube preamp, a tube compressor, a simple 3-band passive EQ section, a “Colour” filter (a tube adaptation of the famous Markbass VLE control), but gets amplified by a potent 500W power amp that features our innovative Tube Technology Emulator, giving even more tubey warmth.
Current technology is brought together with classic tone concepts in a head that looks and sounds vintage—but features some special adaptations of the Markbass innovations that put the brand on the map! The TUBE HEART of the TTE 501 makes this head an incomparable vintage sounding amp!!!
Randy Jackson is world famous as a TV celebrity—he's been one of the judges on America's most-watched TV series, American Idol, since the beginning of the show in 2002.

His resume is vastand varied, and boasts such names as Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Jean-Luc Ponty, Journey, Zucchero, Billy Cobham, Keith Richards, Aretha Franklin, Steve Lukather, Madonna, Herbie Hancock and many others.
