"Markbass amps and cabinets have the sound that I've been looking for,” says Mark. “Warm and punchy with great bottom, mid and top. They really let you shape your sound. The setup I am drawn to is the Mini CMD 121P in combination with the New York 121. It has a deep, full, punchy sound and is very portable for carrying around town. Great amplification of your sound!”
