Product code: MBB148022

The Gloxy family welcomes another fantastic instrument - the MB GLOXYKIMANDU 5 which enriches the range of models in this series, maintaining the same design, charm and main features of the original version while using our Glocalization philosophy to offer it an incredible price.
We live in a global world, however the only global concept is the overall market. Legislation disparities and core differences between continents drive significant differences in production costs. Customer sentiment for low prices followed due to these global market dynamics - and in response, we created our Gloxy series. I decided to blend the supply of raw materials and production, leading to a no compromise approach. This let me harness the advantages of living in Italy, with our “Italian Style” and building on Glocalization to win in globalisation. Glocalization means leveraging our local world with our enviable lifestyle surrounded by our universally acknowledged creativity, blending perfectly and harmoniously with the relationships we have forged worldwide. This isn't just my product, it's a project, a rethinking of production and business. A new philosophy that lets us merge the synergy of this unique time in the world.
We build unique instruments, valued by industry professional and emerging talent who can find the perfect equipment to build their artistic future - without settling for second best - while offering unbeatable value for money.
The result is consistently superior products at competitive prices, while keeping our dealers in mind - along with my passion and respect for music, musicians and their instruments!

Designing such a pleasant shaped instrument wasn't without challenges. While far from a traditional design bassist are familiar with, it retains balance and ergonomics. Designed step by step with Richard Bona himself, we started with the KIMANDU body shape, added a smooth back for those who play seated using the classical position (a trending style between bassists), with a lower cutaway designed to offer maximum access to the highest fret, along with the ultra finished and comfortable neck that allows super low action, and finally the innovative headstock
design crowning this instrument.
GLOXY series is our range of bass guitars that demonstrate our ability to produce a high quality instrument at an incredible price. This achievement is a direct result of our tireless work to compare the quality and price of parts and materials from a wide range of suppliers. We chose only the best components for our Gloxy series, maintaining our focus on excellent value for money.
Each instrument is inspected for quality against our strict requirements at our headquarters in Italy. Gloxy series bass guitars receive the same standard of care and attention as our higher end instruments.
The MB Gloxy Kimandu 5 is equipped with the same MB Instrument Pre that is featured on our premium range of instruments. This onboard preamp is designed from the ground up by Markbass to faithfully reproduce the sound of your instrument. Changes in the volume level when switching from Active to Passive and back again are almost imperceptible - a unique feature of the exceptional circuitry inside. Simple & ergonomic controls allow you to richly boost or cut your EQ without clipping or distorting the signal - even at the maximum settings - allowing the MB Instrument Pre to work with you in any environment.
In addition to the great value already offered by our Gloxy basses, all instruments in this series come with our fantastic MB BASS BAG UNIVERSAL to keep your new purchase safe. Like all Markbass products, this case is made to our precise quality standards without exception. We offer more, with no compromises.
