East Marcus Retro 01 – Without Plate

£237.00 Incl. VAT

Only 2 left in stock

Product Description

The MARCUS RETRO 01 electronics is based on that of the J-Retro, except that the bass & treble contours are voiced to be similar to the preamp that Marcus uses.

This unit can be supplied as electronics only, since Fender have ceased production of the Marcus plate.

Its high quality circuit uses three stacked knobs plus a single knob. It includes an active blend circuit plus 3 band equaliser with bass, variable frequency mid, treble plus bright function. A passive tone circuit is also included which operates in both active and passive modes.

A very gentle built in contour gives immediate lift and colour without detracting from the basic sound of ??the bass. The active blend circuit prevents the loss associated with many passive basses where, when both pickups are up full, the signal from one pickup cross-feeds into the other and vice versa.

However, a switch is included to allow a passive equal mix of both pickups which gives a different tone to an equal passive mix. A second switch – basic “get-you-out-of-trouble” passive mode is included in case the battery dies in crucial circumstances, but this mode allows some useful settings too.
