This week in Pescara, Italy, Markbass founder Marco De Virgiliis and his team unveiled their latest in amplification innovation with the release of their MB58R series of amps, cabinets, and combos. Made of 100% recyclable materials, these amps look to the future in sustainability, while also listening to what gigging bass players want, as the entire series only weighs an amazing 20-30 lbs. In not compromising portability for power, these cabinets can handle between 400-800W of pure bass tone.

The new line includes the Pure, Energy, and P cabinets, along with two new incarnations of Little Mark heads, as well as eight new combo selections. The MB58R series offers a lot of options and configurations for the desires of any bass player, but can all be summed up in six main points: 1. Unmistakable tone 2. Amazing power-to-weight ratio 3. Made in Italy 4. Best quality for the price 5. A modern classic aesthetic and 6. They are eco-friendly  

The MB58R series is a further example of how Markbass is always one step ahead in innovating using state-of-the-art technologies. Once again Marco De Virgiliis with his pioneering soul has managed to create this new series of products which, with the use of custom components born thanks to years of experience and research Markbass and the use of revolutionary materials with an eye to the future and the environment, has nailed the tone and power versus portability issue.
