The B4 Plus offers uncompromising quality for the discriminating musician with high value and performance. Featuring a Swamp Ash body, bolt-on construction for a warm open sound with great sonic dispersion. The B4 is fitted with Bartolini MK1-4 pickups and electronics.
The Swamp Ash body is a livelier and more resonant wood than poplar, Swamp Ash is characterized by a scooped-mids sound with a bigger low-end and clear highs for a more balanced tone. The open-pore finish enhances the resonance even further and the wood’s natural light weight and good-looking grain patterns are other positives of swamp ash. An ideal match for the Markbass 3-Band EQ system.
The Markbass MB-1 EQ provides a very natural and transparent boost that does not color the organic nature or resonance of the instrument’s woods. The crystal clarity and natural warmth combined exude a passive feel with smooth lows, full-bodied mids, and bell-like highs. The Markbass 3-Band EQ brings out the best acoustic nature of the bass instrument.
