Markbass has announced that Reggie Washington has joined their growing list of endorsing bassists. Reggie’s choice of gear is the MoMark amplifier (800W amp frame, S2 preamp, EQ4S EQ module, and M0 master module), a Little Mark Tube 800 amplifier, and two Standard 104HR cabinets. For upright, he has a Markacoustic AC 121 combo.
“My first time really checking out Markbass equipment was at Bass Day UK ’07, and talking with Jeff Berlin,” says Reggie. “I could hear and feel my entire Woody bass. That’s special from an amp!”
Over the last 20 years, Washington has performed with a wide variety of musicians, including Cassandra Wilson, Don Byron, Oliver Lake, Ronnie Cuber, Buddy Williams, Lester Bowie, World Saxophone Quartet, Steps Ahead, Will Smith, Arthur Blythe, M-Base Collective, Meshell N’degeocello, Ute Lemper, Jean-Paul Bourelly, Uri Caine and Cheick-Tidiane Seck. He has performed at almost every jazz and music festival worldwide with award winning artists such as Roy Hargrove, Branford Marsalis, Steve Coleman and Chico Hamilton. His debut CD, A Lot of Love, LIVE!, was released in 2005.
