"As a producer and a session musician, i need access to “real” and “reliable” tones at the snap of the fingers, and Markbass is the only Amplifier i know that allows me to paint all the colors, and tones i need for every bass situation without compromising dynamic , quality and feel....cuz the bass doesn’t only need to be heard; it needs to be felt!"—says Fabrizio—"And when it comes to lay it down for my own band : Supersonic Blues Machine , my Markbass stack switches from bass amp to Russian Tank mode , and i wouldn’t want it any other way!!! One day, they might bury me in a Markbass enclosure....hopefully it’ll be an 8x10!"
