"As bassists, we all know that good tone starts in our hands. But once we start seeking out the gear to best amplify it, we have almost unlimited options for our sound. Between our choices of instrument, strings, and cabinet, it can get a bit overwhelming. Marco and I wanted to create an amplifier that makes things simple, one that makes you feel at home with an old-school versatility that can suit practically any genre of music. The great amps of the past have all share the same qualities: rich and deep lows, a warm and punchy midrange, and the ability to get a great sound the second you plug in. The Markbass CASA has all of these. Out of curiosity, I ran a blind listening test for four professionals- two recording engineers and two musicians, using five different amplifiers and over a dozen different basses. On almost every single pass, the Markbass CASA was unanimously chosen alongside the classic amps as the favorite sound for each instrument." —Michael League—
