The Markbass STU1000 head Stu Hamm is a real rocker and he wanted an amp dedicated to his articulated style but with simple/intuitive controls and with a “rock” size to fit the taste of loud guys like him on stage. The Markbass Stu Hamm signature amp features both a solid state and a tube preamp with separate level controls offering the clean attack of a solid state and the warmth and grit of a tube in a single unit with the mix option, plus a 7-band graphic EQ to tailor bass tone to perfection. The massive real power of 1,000W from the MPT power amp allows to handle any kind of gigs, no matter how big the stage or how loud the band — this amp is always ready to rock hard! From a small club to Joe Satriani’s big stage: Rock sound with the MB STU AMP 1000! About the cabinet > BEATING THE 2X15” COMPETITORS There are not many 2x15” cabs on the market, partly because of the typical 15” drivers lack of definition limiting their range of application. But with the CLASSIC 152 SH, this configuration is now an available choice for a wider population of bass players, not only rock-reggae-dub bassists but even for slap lovers. Not for nothing, Stu has chosen this speaker configuration for his complex and articulate technique. > 1” COMPRESSION DRIVER WITH CUSTOM HORN If you turn off the tweeter level control you’ll get an astounding vintage, 60s/70s sound, or just turn it on to extend the high end of the frequency response from 5KHz to 20KHz adding a modern high-end sheen to your sound! > WEIGHT/POWER RATIO The lightness and power of this cabinet put it in a new league compared to the 2x15” cabinets of the past, which tended to be way heavier and lacking in power, making them unpractical. With 72.75lbs/33kg and reasonable dimensions, transportation is a breeze. And 800W of power handling makes it suitable for any big rock stage.
