Maybe not many people know that since the past centuries Abruzzo has been the motherland of almost all string makers.
The art of string making was born in this beautiful part of the world and many great brands in today’s worldwide market can trace their own origins here, it's a history made of skilled hands, hard work, sacrifices and so much genius: typical features of the people from Abruzzo.
I've decided to continue this ancient master strings’ history and tradition by acquiring D'Orazio Strings, one of the historic Abruzzo string producers since 1859 and blend it with all Markbass know-how about production experience, the selection of innovative materials and ultimate quality controls in order to offer a real superior product.
We're about to start selling our strings worldwide and I can't wait for them to be mounted on your instruments offering best intonation and reliability, and exceptional performance with an amazing feeling below your fingers!
