The Markbass artist of this week is Mark Egan!

June 26, 2017, 6:49 a.m.

His distinctive fretless sound has graced countless jazz and pop albums, as well as award-winning movie and television soundtracks.
A charter member of the Pat Metheny Group, he also played on multi-platinum-selling recordings by Sting, Arcadia and Joan Osborne, and recorded with pop stars like Roger Daltrey, Sophie B. Hawkins, Marianne Faithfull, Judy Collins, Cyndi Lauper and Art Garfunkel, and jazz notables like David Sanborn, John McLaughlin, Gato Barbieri, Freddy Cole, Jim Hall, Mark Murphy and Larry Coryell. A member of the Gil Evans Orchestra for 13 years, Egan has also racked up seven albums as a leader, and ten as a co-leader of Elements, the band he formed in 1982 with Pat Metheny Group bandmate Danny Gottlieb. 

"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!”
