A Markbass Nano Mark 300.
In collaboration with importer Voerman Amersfoort and Markbass in Italy, we get to give away a beautiful little thing: a Markbass Nano Mark 300 with a value of over 400 euros. A small device but with big power: Markbass’ smallest is a serious amplifier top that weighs only 3.2 kilos yet delivers 300 watts. That should be enough for almost any gig.
Many amplifier manufacturers use a standard power amplifier that was not intended specifically for bass. Marco De Virgiliis, also known as ‘Mr. Markbass’, spent a lot of resources into developing a power amplifier specifically for our instrument, that delivers a warm, punchy, clear, honest and when necessary aggressive sound. This is called Mark Proprietary Technology, or MPT.
Do you want a shot at winning this amazing amplifier top? This time we don’t want to hear about massive hooks, aggressive fuzzlines, distorted licks or solid slaps. We care about the little ones too. We all have that favorite track with that small, subtle bass line somewhere at the tail of the last verse.
What is your favorite subtle little bass line?

NEWS from NAMM 2017.
Maybe the most extraordinary news is the CASA, the classically designed amplifier for Snark Puppy’s Michael League.
The looks of this Markbass suggest tubes, but no, not at all.
We ran into Michael and he told us that what he wanted was an old-fashioned transistor amplifier, like they were made in the seventies as quality ‘replacement’ for the tube amp.
Michael and his technicians performed many blindfolded tests many other tube amps, vintage and modern.
League insists that the Casa won every single time.
