Markbass Pedals

Post by nzsimon » Wed Oct 28, 2009 9:26 am

While I was in Italy I discovered they are completely redesigning the Pedals . They purchased one of every pedal available on the market and then set out to make theirs not only better but vastly better
They have combined some of the pedals into one like the Octaver and the Synth are now one pedal and invented new ones like the Booster with the VLF and VPF control with a DI built in .

BUT they have also added an RJ45 computer port on the pedals and included software to enable you to fine tune the sounds and store presets and name them in your PC and download them into the pedal at will
The Chourus pedal left me simply amazed these will sell to both Bass and Guitarists

dont get me wrong. but wasn't stuff like the booster with VLF and VPF with a DI built in on their original announcement anyway.

so was the computer port for the synth pedal. no idea why you would need a port for a boost =)

no wonder its gonna be so pricey. they have to cover the purchases of some stupidly expensive pedals if they are buying one of everything on the market. :roll:

Usually when things start don't get me wrong it is a good time to stop right at that point :-)

The Synth and the Octaver are now one pedal

As the prices have come down 30% Pricey isn't a word that applies anymore
Top of the line or cheap pick one

"While I was in Italy I discovered they are completely redesigning the Pedals"

that was the only part i was questioning. as you made it seem that they are doing over the pedals that they have in their line. =)
