IN 2016 MARKBASS REACHES THE GOAL OF FIFTEEN YEARS OF ACTIVITY, MAINLY MADE BY SUCCESSES... THAT HAVE BEEN VERY FAST, THAT’S THE REASON WHY I’D LIKE TO RECALL A BIT OUR HISTORY....

I’VE EVER ENJOYED WATCHING THE WORLD FROM A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW…

FROM THE BOTTOM END!

Since I was a kid I’ve ever had a passion for imagination. It wasn’t just a passion but a real need to create and design something new, out of normal standards. I attended clarinet classes at the conservatory and I immediately developed a passion for saxophone and I remember when I got my first Selmer Mark VI I used to sleep with it… I realized I had a strong passion for musical instruments and I ever thought anybody buying a musical instrument wasn’t getting just an instrument but a Dream! In the mean time, since I was a kid, I got into electronic and acoustic and my house was full of speakers and amplifiers, even under my bed… These two passions, around my 30’s, drove me to turn my passions into a job; at that point I realized I actually had a third passion: BUSINESS ESTABLISHMENT.


NOTHING HAPPENS BY CHANCE: THE CIRCUMSTANCE Having know-how, desire, experience and being able to suffer is not enough if there’s not a circumstance making the difference; without dwelling too much on this concept, the most important phenomenons of the 60’s, like the Beatles… Besides all their ideas and intuitions, they wouldn’t have been able to do today what they did at that time. That said, let’s move to my story. In 1996, beside my passions, I received another strong boost, I mean the fact I didn’t graduate in electronic engineering. For this reason I didn’t have the chance to build my career inside big companies, but I was noticing big mistakes while I was working as an employed. One day I decided to quit my job to start my own brand. It was exactly the right moment, because there was the right circumstance. The most popular bass amp brand at the time and all the other brands imitating it had all the same characteristic, I mean they sounded great at the store but they didn’t with the band (I actually played with many bands and many bass players). A big revolution was going on around bass conception because it was turning from an accompaniment instrument, most of the time, to what it is now. New playing techniques were coming out and the instrument itself was developing with a lot of 5 and 6 string basses on production; so bass amps had to follow this new evolution. I’VE BEEN ABLE TO INVOLVE INTO MY DREAMS A SMALL NUMBER OF PERSONS WHO SHARED SINCE THE BEGINNING THE ENTHUSIASM IN A MOMENT WHERE IT SEEMED IMPOSSIBLE TO EVEN THINK WE WOULD HAVE BECOME ONE OF THE FIRST BRANDS IN THE WORLD IN JUST 15 YEARS.

I can’t dwell too much on this catalogue, but I wanna say the team power, my bravery and the fire I had inside for what I was doing is something I can’t easily describe. Today we’re around 50 people, but not everybody can understand and totally realize that period where I’ve had a leading role while a dream was turning into reality with huge difficulties. Today it’s hard to explain even to myself how that was possible. Many people don’t know my first brand was named Parsek, but after a few years of experience it turned into Markbass in 2001.

A DREAM COMES TRUE In 2001, after collecting all the experiences that still had to bring me to my success, but realizing the right direction to follow, once again we used all our foolishness and bravery to create Markbass. Since its establishment, in April 2001, it was clear some intuitions made the difference. We’ve been the first using Neodymium when nobody was believing it. Today it looks like there’s only Neodymium! So we also put on the market new cabinets that not only were delivering what the payoff said: “the real sound of your bass”, but they were 50% lighter than our competitors products. I’ve never thought as an artisan, but I ever thought it was possible to create a factory respecting the handcraft quality while the numbers allowed to access more technologies and components choices. A typical example is about Markbass speakers; all the artisans are forced to use “standard” speakers. I was able to have my own speakers since the first project and I’ve chosen every single parameter… That made the difference… and it still does.


YELLOW Since I was a kid I had my favorite color that was sunny and full of energy: Yellow I remember the first time a called my speaker supplier to ask for yellow speaker, his answer was: C’mon, stop kidding! When I received the first prototypes, that were lemon yellow, it was clear to me the idea was right, but I needed to fine tune it… Today I receive yellow pictures and items from all over the world.

In the meantime we were conquering many new markets, but the great thing that I’m really proud of is, since then, we gained a respect and enthusiasm aura that everybody was perceiving from the passion my team was putting on the brand. One of our top-endorsers, Cliff Hugo (Supertramp) said this about us: “YOU TRANSFER THE QUALITY OF YOUR PEOPLE INTO THE PRODUCTS YOU MAKE!”

When we introduced the first yellow series at Namm and then at the Musikmesse… the brand took off… of course it wasn’t just for the color, because that year we introduced the first 2 kilos amps against the average weight of 7/8 kilos of our competitors… It’s rewarding looking to other brands today promoting their amps weight (anyway, they’re still heavier than our products). IN THE MEANTIME THE TEAM GROWS

A DREAM INSIDE THE DREAM While all these events were happening, my company was becoming a leader brand in the bass amp business and a lot of my musical myths that I’ve ever saw inside other brands booths started becoming not only my endorsers, but real friends as well. We always talk about endorsements in this business but I can be proud of myself for perceiving my relationship with artists in a pretty original way. Every single endorser working with Mark World has first of all a human interaction with me and my team, then they all love my instruments and they’re really involved in the products development, because we share experience and knowledge, being them the real stage leading people. Of course in the beginning I had exclusively Italian endorsers and I’ll be thankful forever to all of them for believing in me and in Markbass sound before it was a worldwide phenomenon.

Today Markbass is without any doubt one of the main brands worldwide watching its numbers and market share, but first of all it inspires respect and passion as we can read on all the emails we receive daily… Some excerpts from thousands of nice emails we receive from our customers Worldwide.

This is our big plus, we never lost our artisan spirit and our care on a thousand details that maybe nobody sees but that made our success, starting from the way we live our company.

Great thank you and your products are amazing as good as you say they are I have been playing for 35 years and I’m so glad I found Markbass G.K. (UK) I’m really contacting you to say a few words about your bass amps. I’ve been playing for about 55 years... I’ve been using your amps for about nine years now and I have to say they’re the best amps EVER. So well thought out. The weight, the sound, the compact size all contribute to the perfect amp. I have a CMD 102P and a CMD 121P. I also have a Traveler 151P and a New York 121. And I’m sure I’ll have more on the way. So thank you for making such a wonderful amp. B.G. (USA) ... wanted to say thank you for making gear that sounds so good, that is so reliable. I’ve owned my Little Mark Bass II, 15” traveller, and 2x10 for 6 years. Simply awesome sound. S.D. (Canada) Thanks so much for taking the time to answer me. I will follow your recommendation... The fact that you took your time of day for a relatively unknown musician like me will stay with me, and I’ll remember your act of kindness. May God bless you and it only makes me see Markbass in an even more positive light. All the best. J.F. (UK)

Without losing our focus on two main things as Sterling Ball teached me: Having focus on products and customers. Today Markbass isn’t my only brand anymore as we now have DV Mark… And we have other projects developing on other fields, always keeping that need to imagine something different, the real load bearing axis of the whole story. My emotions are renewed every time I see and hear one of my amps on TV, at the movie, etc…

Thank you... Your customer service and response is second to none in this industry. I greatly appreciate all your help with my questions. It make the purchasing decision very easy. Best regards. J.H. (USA) Thank you very much, the response Time of the MB support is extremely short. This Time it was only seconds. Brillant! M.L. (Germany) I am a semi pro and have gigged this amp on 2 occassions since I purchased it and I have to admit, that it is really everything that is said about, having been an Ampeg user for many years, this little amp certainly has blown me away. Thank you Markbass, I cannot say anymore as there is not much left to say, just THANK YOU MARKBASS. L.R. (UK) Hello Mark, thank you so much for your prompt reply. I love the head - I have owned Trace Elliot, Gallien Krueger, SWR and Ampeg, but none of them can match the quality/light weight/power package that your design offers, especially for the heads. You really have made a huge impact in the music bass industry. Thanks for your ingenuity! Sincerely. A.S. (USA)

Thanks to all our customers, they are very special for us and for our company. Every single customer is like the only one in the world! Anyway, we keep going with our maxim: BORN TO RUN!


MPT MARK PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY

About all the bass amps on the market use the same power amp from different manufacturers, which are not specificically designed for bass. At Markbass, Marco De Virgiliis invested a lot of resouces in R&D to develope a proprietary power amp technology, specifically designed to respect and glorify the tone of your instrument.

MARKBASS EVO 1

EVO EVO COMING SOON

As for the guitar version, the MARKBASS EVO 1 is a rEVOlutionary amp, as a result of the mix between classic and advanced technology evolution to allow bassists to have not only just a ‘gorgeous’ bass sound, but always the ‘right’ sound... no matter which genres and techniques they’re playing!!! The MARKBASS EVO 1 offers six AMPS tone choices for each of the two channels, clean and distorted. One of the most common trick to get a “cutting in the mix” sound or nail a good distorted sound for a bassist is usually to run two signals at the same time: a clean one and a distorted one. The two channels and mix control of the MARKBASS EVO 1 allow to do that, featuring also separate EQ settings for the two different AMPs. Both channels feature classic standard amp controls interface and one effect for each channel (you can update AMPs and effects picking and downloading your favorite ones from our website), MIDI ports, on board tuner, aux in and headphones out, FX loops, XLR Line Outs, and a powerful 500W MPT (Mark Proprietary Technology) power amp.

EFFECT PEDALS

SUPER SYNTH

The SUPER SYNTH turns your bass into a synthesizer— with seriously cool sounds and no tracking delay! It also doubles as a digital octaver, with both octave up and octave down layers. The parameters of the pedal’s presets can be modified using the Markbass Pedal Controller software and downloaded back to your pedal from your computer via the USB connection.

COMPRESSORE COMPRESSORE is no mere stomp box… it’s a state-of-the-art compression tool that allows you to control gain, threshold, ratio, attack and release. Although it’s very easy and practical to use, it may just be the finest tube compressor pedal ever created!


ACCESSORIES

BASS KEEPER Any busy bassist knows that the less trips to and from the car you have to make, the better. If you can carry all your gear in one trip, you’re the envy of the whole band! Bulky things like stands are an inconvenience. But this ingenious little Bass Keeper travels inside your Amp Bag pocket, or the back pocket of your gig bag, and then holds your bass securely to the side of your cabinet whenever you’re not playing. No bassist should be without one of these handy accessories!

MARK STAND When playing on a small stage and standing close to your rig, it can be difficult to hear yourself. This ingenious little accessory shows how well Markbass understands the needs of working bass players. Especially on smaller stages, bassists often need to angle their cabinet upwards (in “monitor” position) in order to hear themselves adequately. This adjustable, folding stand fits anywhere and can support any Markbass cabinet.
