Demo: Markbass Super Synth

Demo: Markbass Super Synth

The Markbass Super Synth was a craigslist purchase I made after checking out fellow bassist Dennis Owens’ of Free Moral Agents use of his. He used it in a very musical and inspiring way but when I got mine and shot this video, I was clearly not inspired and so the result is a lukewarm review. What I should add is that just because I am not a fan of the Markbass Super Synth, does in no way mean I think it is bad pedal for all musicians. It did not move me but it moved Dennis, and it may move you.

There will be pedal builders and then there will be the ones who build sonic frontiers such as Mantic Effects. As I stated before, this is an exciting time for effects and to have access to inventors like Mantic during such a boom. These guys first hit me up on email and were so excited about what they were building, they would give me heat for not putting up videos of a pedal they sent me. Being an artist myself, I recognize that kind of enthusiasm for our creations and so I told the Mantic crew, I will do you justice.

Demo: Pigtronix Mothership Analog Synthesizer
