Markbass announces MoMark.it - a new website allowing bassists to design their own bass amp
The interactive site guides customers through the process, helping them choose the right amp frame and modules to best suit their needs. The system begins with a powered amp frame and ends with the selection of preamp, EQ and master modules. Customers have the ability to choose their amp's power and features, and can modify or upgrade their design at any time.
The amps are in production and shipping now. Select dealers will have MoMark Testers that will allow customers to compare available amp frames and modules, and try them with various Markbass cabinets and other Markbass amps.
The company has also launched a YouTube contest for Markbass users to win a MoMark amplifier of their choice.
Entrants are asked to upload a video of them or their band in a live performance, using Markbass gear. Entries will be judged on the quality of the musical performance, the quality of the picture and sound of the video, the energy of the audience, and the visibility of the rig. All videos entered must be at least three minutes long, and must include the words “Markbass Contest” in the video tags. Markbass endorsers, staff, distributors and retailers (or their employees) are not eligible to win.
The contest is now on, and the deadline for submissions is October 1, 2009. On October 2, 2009, Markbass will check the top 10 YouTube search results for “Markbass Contest”, in both view count and viewer rating. Out of those top finalists, the winner will be selected in a vote by Markbass staff and top artists. The winner will be announced on October 3, 2009, and will be notified by email to his or her YouTube account, to make sure the video is in fact theirs. The winner will reply with their address and choice of MoMark frame and modules, and on October 31, 2009, they will be sent their amp!

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.

Mojotone will manufacture and market over 60 of their speaker cabinets and amp kits as “Licensed by Fender.”
This partnership marks Fender's recognition of Mojotone’s dedication to its craft, quality of products, and dependability of knowledge. Beginning November 29th and ranging from $327 - $1,016.
Amplifiers were among the first products to wear the official Fender seal. A qualified electronics technician by trade, Leo Fender developed his iconic amplifiers during the mid-1940s putting innovation at the forefront. To this day, Leo’s influence and innovative spirit can still be heard in today’s amps, as that same iconic, clean Fender tone continues to color new music around the world. As a result, the process for completing the exclusive licensing deal required Fender to carefully audit Mojotone’s amplifier kits, wiring diagrams, electronics, hardware, construction methods, and more to ensure this innovation carried on through the partnership. Mojotone’s many years of intense research, quality production, and favorable reputation solidified the deal.
Mojotone has always been determined to provide its customer base with the most sought-after parts with their insider industry-knowledge. They have spent the last 25 years helping musicians recreate what they deem to be the most famous and easily-recognized tones and aesthetics in the music industry. When purchasing Mojotone products, like Fender products, customers can be assured of unmatched quality and craftsmanship.
