The monster bass player, singer and songwriter, Mark King of Level 42 fame, has recently joined the Markbass family. Here is how the Italian bass amp wizards describe the whole situation:
“Another MARK in our History!
We knew that Mark had a Markbass head for many years and that he would usually take it with him as a spare during festivals. We never mentioned this publicly due to a form of respect and the style of business that distinguishes us but now we can announce our honor and pleasure to have him part of our family! When you have always been a fan of Level 42 and you receive an email from Mark King, and if he actually asks to become part of our Markbass family, it is a real special feeling. We immediately exchanged some e-mails while he was traveling back from Quebec, then, followed up with a nice telephone conversation. We had sent him our new Little Mark Vintage with a Standard 104HR [cabinet]. We were confident that he would appreciate our last Markbass jewel but receiving this feedback is even more exciting:
‘Say hello to my new studio rig. It’s the new Little Mark Vintage Gold Line head, and it sounds amazing. Loads of punch, and bags of tone. I’m a very happy boy, and can’t wait to get it out on the road. Thank you Marco.‘
Markbass is no doubt one of the most important brands in the world and there are some that may believe that our collaborations with top-players are based on strong marketing strategies, negotiations, contracts, etc… but these are very simply driven by emotions and passion.
It appeared to be a normal weekend… but it turned into something special… Welcome Mark!”
