Know as the highest peak in Africa, the Kilimanjaro was designed and improved step by step with Richard Bona until we came to the final result that satisfied at 100% Richard, Marco and any bass player who had the chance to try the very first samples we made.
We’re really proud of this amazing instrument, a lute manufactured bass that includes all our passion and experience.

All Marco’s and Markbass experience on bass TONE has been condensed on this outstanding electronic circuit, simple, intuitive and effective even on extreme settings. Controls are VOLUME/VOLUME/TONE (with an active/passive switch on Tone) letting an incredible pickups blending capability compared to a regular Blend control and with active BASS/MID/TREBLE…so you’re not gonna have resounding bass or blowing treble. The frequency values have been chosen to offer a wide range of tones that you can use on any setting. The TONE control (working also in the passive mode) has been defined by Richard as the “G Point” because of its accurate efficacy letting to move from smooth and warm tones to bright and hi-fi ones, everything in a one of a kind “sensual” way.
