The amp manufacturer Markbass seemed to come out of nowhere about a decade ago, ascending from an Italian upstart remarkable for its ubiquitous use of yellow to a multifaceted major player on big stages and in big-box music stores.

Besides its aggressive R&D, torrent of new models, and relationships with top players, Markbass earned its success the right way, designing a broad range of heads and cabs that made good use of the latest in weight-saving technology, coupled with a commitment to utility in a wide range of musical settings.
