From Jim Marshall
I would like to thank you personally for selecting
one of our Bass-State™ combos.
Pages 9 - 15
As my company has grown, over the years I have
come into contact with literally thousands of different
types of musicians from all over the world.
ESPANOL
Though Marshall Amplification is known primarily
as a manufacturer of guitar amplification, we
successfully answered the pleas of the professional bass
players with whom I had come into contact, by releasing
our critically acclaimed Dynamic Bass Systems.
As part of our long term commitment to bass
amplification the same team that designed the acclaimed
DBS have now created Bass-State™. By combining the
highest quality tone control with useful and innovative
features, plus the now renowned Marshall Valvestate™
power amp technology, Bass-State presents a formidable
range of amplification for every bass playing situation.
Pages 16 - 22
To take full advantage of the possibilities offered by
your Bass-State™ combo I would suggest that you take
the time to read this handbook carefully.

Pages 23 - 29
JAPANESE
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you
every success with your Bass-State™ combo which I am
sure you will find a joy to play for many years to come.

blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The
wide blade or the third prong is provided for your safety. When the provided plug does not fit into your outlet,
consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.
Follow all instructions and heed all warnings - KEEP THESE INSTRUCTIONS !
5. Treble
Another tip, for those of you who have got active basses
who want a distorted tone, try plugging your bass into the
Passive Input. This will cause no harm and may provide the
sound you are looking for.
By adjusting the Treble control you can add or take
away the higher frequencies in your bass tone. By
increasing the amount of treble you will make your tone
brighter, ideal for more percussive playing styles.
4. Bass
Effects Loop
The effects loop is used for connecting an external
effects processor or floor pedal. The effects loop on the
Marshall B30 is sensitive enough to suit the level of either
type (processor or floor pedal) to ensure that a perfect match
is made.
Turning the Bass control will effect the amount of low
frequencies or bottom end in your bass guitar tone. Rotating
this clockwise will increase the amount of lower tones
generally making your bass sound deeper. Turning this
control anti-clockwise will reduce the bass frequencies in
your tone producing a reduction in bottom end thud.

8. 5 Band Graphic Equaliser
To allow you to further tailor your sound, with the
Graphic EQ it is possible to cut or boost 5 specific
frequency bands fundamental to the projection and shaping
of bass guitar tone.
10. Power Switch
Switches the mains power to the combo on/off.
9. Limiter
B 65
Our latest SLS Limiter allows you to switch the built-in
Limiter circuitry in or out. With the Limiter switched on
you are ‘limiting’ the power amp to keep distortion to a
minimum at high overall volume levels - without unduly
affecting the amp’s natural tonal performance. At lower
volume levels the Limiter will have no effect.
65 Watt Combo
The concept behind Marshalls’ revolutionary Valvestate™ technology was to emulate the performance of a
Marshall valve power stage without actually using power valves. By providing the warmth, feel, responsiveness and
sheer musicality of a valve amp without involving the cost and weight, Valvestate™ has placed this classic valvelike sound in the hands of thousands of musicians the world over.
SPANISH
By harnessing the technology used in Valvestate and adapting it for use with bass guitar we have created BassState™ - a revolutionary new concept in bass amplification. Bass-State power actually delivers that fat, smooth,
more rounded bottom end with full bodied middle and vibrant treble - just like an all-valve amp, but with none of the
drawbacks. From private practice up to full stage performance, Bass-State combos have the flexibility, features and
power ratings to suit any type of bass and any type of bass player.

The middle frequencies tend to effect the fatness or
body of the tone. Turning this control up will make your
bass sound fatter, turning it down will hollow out the sound
and make it thinner.

WARNING! - Important safety instructions
Each bass displays certain tonal characteristics,
some for example will sound brighter than others
while others may sound bassier.
Before we look at some suggested settings there
are a couple of points that you should remember;
1- Taste in sound is a very personal thing. What
might sound great to one bass player might not appeal
to another bassist. Therefore these suggested settings
may need some alterations to suit your own personal
taste.
For this reason again you may find that these
suggested settings need some alteration to give the
required sound.
Here then follows three simple settings for both
the B30 and the B65 suitable for Slap, Fingers and
Plectrum styles.
2- One of the main influences on your sound will
be your bass.
We hope that these settings provide you with a
useful starting point to develop your own killer bass
tones.

This controls the amount of input from your bass
and the amount of input from the pre-amp to the
power amp. If you require a clean bass sound turn
this control up until your bass just starts to distort and
then back it off slightly. If on the other hand you
would like a distorted sound, simply turn up the Gain
control until the required amount of distortion is
achieved. Another tip, for those of you who have got
active basses who want a distorted tone, is to try
plugging your bass into the Passive Input. This will
cause no harm and may provide the sound you are

With the B150 it is possible to blend your signal
between a valve and/or solid-state input pre-amp
section. Each type of pre-amp produces a different
character of sound, valve pre-amps for example tend
to give a very warm tone while solid-state pre-amps
give a harder, snappier response, ideal for more
percussive styles of bass playing. As these circuits
are blendable, it is possible to have degrees of both
types of pre-amp in your signal, to combine the best
of both worlds.
