Looks like Marcus Miller is getting a signature MB amp.

Looks like 5 band EQ, VLE and a "Millerizer" control, which I'm guessing is exactly the same as the VPF.

LED backlit input?

The usual nasty Markbass graphics...... (and this from someone with MB stuff!)

If Marcus is looking to get his signature sound out MB... he'll need them to revisit the cabs too...

Looks like there are signature cabs too. Look closely from 50 seconds in. The 210 on the top of the cab stack has offset drivers and a yellow Marcus Miller silhouette graphic on the bottom right corner.

Indeed - looks like they've changed the tweeter too... which should help them get closer to the signature Marcus sound...

Good spot. Back panel of the amp looks like 800 watts, and a sticker says "hard limiter" too. it also says "Little Mark III"....

Basically a tweaked and upgraded LM3, which should have been done years ago!

I suspect he'd sound like Marcus Miller regardless of what he played through.

+1. I once saw Mike Stern play on two Yamaha amps and a brand new Mike Stern signature Yamaha guitar at a (you guessed it) Yamaha clinic. Sounded just like he always sounds. It isn't all in the hands but a lot of it is!

And a tilt back side (at right side facing front). See it at 1:33. The 410 is a tilt back too: https://www.facebook...1823632/?type=3
