ABRUZZO ANCIENT MASTER STRING MAKERS HISTORY AND TRADITION CONTINUE!
Markbass Strings are made in our factory in Abruzzo (Italy), using the best selected innovative materials and ultimate quality controls matched with the ancient tradition of master string makers.
The GOUCHÈ strings series has been developed in collaboration with our top-artist Andrew Gouchè, the legendary godfather of gospel bass players and Grammy Award winning producer. With his distinctive bass sound and over 30 years of experience, Andrew has made an indelible mark on the history of Gospel and R&B music, inspiring today’s generation of bassists. These strings series are made of selected high quality stainless steel wire wrapped over a hex high carbon content core with a special semi-exposed section at the bridge, so string rides low and tight in saddle, allowing for a very comfortable low-action and offering extra brilliance, super sustain and definition on the low strings.
|Bassist for many R&B and Gospel legends as Prince and the New Power Generation, Gladys Knight, Andraé Crouch, The Winans and musical director for Chaka Khan, ANDREW GOUCHÈ got regular call for recording sessions across all genres including Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Julio Iglesias, Madonna, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Earth, Wind & Fire, Aretha Franklin, Y’anna, Hidden Beach Unwrapped Series, Jimmy Reid, LA Jazz Syndicate, Smokey Robinson, Patti LaBelle, Judith Hill, Kirk Franklin, Donna Summer...|
