“I use Markbass amplifiers exclusively,” confirms Frank. “Since the first time I plugged into one at a music festival in Perugia, Italy, in 2001, I was astounded by the amplifier’s power and presence, as well as the absolute no-compromise sound quality. It made my bass sound the way it’s supposed to sound. I felt that way then, and I feel that way now even more. Markbass amplifiers make my bass sound the way I hear it in my mind’s ear. I can’t ask for more. Bravo, Markbass!”
