Breaking NAMM News – Snarky Puppy’s Michael League Signature Amp, The MARKBASS CASA

Markbass top-artist MICHAEL LEAGUE from Snarky Puppy has partnered with Marco De Virgiliis and Markbass team to develop a signature amp with classic tone and impeccable sonic integrity.

The MARKBASS CASA adds to the very cool vintage design the benefit of new modern standard.

Its solid-state preamp has a very natural sound and faithfully reproduces the true tone of your instrument, the Treble and Bass EQ basic controls are easy and effective and the rich 5 band EQ section gives a wide range of tones, allowing to taylor the sound of your bass for any kind of music style.


A 500W MPT (Mark Proprietary Technology) power amp supplies great attack and definition with impeccable bass frequency reproduction and astounding warm tone!

“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 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 Casa was unanimously chosen alongside other classic amps as the favorite sound for each instrument.”
