Affordable but loaded with quality materials, components and craftsmanship, the Action Series basses define value for the aspiring bass player with versatile features as PJ, JJ and soapbar pickup options and active EQ electronics.
MARKBASS MB-1 EQ
The Markbass MB-1 EQ provides a very natural and transparent boost that does not color the organic nature or resonance of the instrument’s woods. The crystal clarity and natural warmth combined exude a passive feel with smooth lows, full-bodied mids, and bell-like highs. The Markbass 3-Band EQ brings out the best acoustic nature of the bass instrument.
PDX PICKUPS (DUAL SOAPBAR)
Developed with tonal flexibility in mind, the PDX soapbar pickups deliver a strong fundamental low-end that is ideal for classic and traditional bass sounds. The front pickup exhibits a firm midrange ideal for fingerpicking classic rock sounds while the rear pickup provides more power and focus for aggressive music as well as for slapping with greater force than J-type pickups.
FIGURED MAPLE TOP
A new and significant upgrade of figured maple top rarely found on value-priced instruments, the highly figured top adds a dimension of luxury and class in Faded Grey Burst and Cherry Red Sunburst.
