For 2021 we are excited to announce the godfather of gospel bass players, the
legendary Andrew Gouché has joined the Markbass family! A Grammy Award winning
producer with over 30 years of experience as the bassist for many R&B and Gospel
legends as Prince and the New Power Generation, Gladys Knight, Andraé Crouch, The
Winans and musical director for Chaka Khan, he got regular call for recording
sessions across all genres including Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Julio Iglesias,
Madonna, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Earth, Wind & Fire, Aretha Franklin, Yanna, Hidden
Beach Unwrapped Series, Jimmy Reid, LA Jazz Syndicate, Smokey Robinson, Patti LaBelle,
Judith Hill, Kirk Franklin, Donna Summer ... with his distintive bass sound Andrew has
made an indelible mark on the history of Gospel and R&B music, inspiring todays
generation of bassists.
Having played our amplifiers at several events, Andrew fell in love with Markbass
tone and character. So in partnership with Andrew, weve been working together over
the past year to make an amplifier head that has his own unique sound - instinctively.
Were proud to introduce the amazing Little AG 1000,
designed with Andrew - built by Markbass.
Andrew Gouché signature sound
We created this amplifier to suit Andrews individual requirements for both sound,
and playing style. Thanks to his exceptional music production experience and finely
tuned musical ear, the development process was rapid and precise. With Andrews deep
knowledge of what makes a great bass sound, we customised frequency choices based on
his direction and he stamped it with his seal of approval Finally I have MY sound!.
1000W high-power / ultimate dynamics
This ultra high-power head is underpinned by our powerful 1000W MPT power amp delivering
extraordinary power and headroom, with accurate dynamics and amazing definition.
This dedicated limiter control enables a modern amp response when fully dialled in. In
contrast when set to zero it creates that old generation behavior along with the typical
distortion you can get when the limiter effect is really low. Of course you can also select
everything in between to create your own individual amplifier characteristic response.
FSW MUTE / EQ ON/OFF
Featured on the front panel of the Little AG 1000 amplifier is a convenient mute switch.
In addition with an optional dual footswitch (FSW) you can remotely trigger the mute function,
and also turn the EQ section on/off.
MPT - MARK PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY
Many other bass amps on the market use power amps that are not specifically designed for bass.
At Markbass, Marco De Virgiliis invested heavily in R&D to develop proprietary power amp
technology in house. Our MPT power amp was built from the ground up to respect and elevate
the inherent tone of your instrument.
