The Brand

Abruzzo has a long tradition of stringed-instrument making, and is home to some of the great names in string manufacturing. After founding Markbass in this region, Marco De Virgiliis decided to perpetuate it by acquiring D’Orazio Strings and benefiting from the knowledge of string master Alessandro Ciavattone,

Combining D’Orazio’s tradition and experience with Markbass’ own drive for innovation, Mark Strings was born, offering a complete range of strings for acoustic and electric guitars, bass and double bass, from traditional nickel plating to the modern nanotechnological coatings of the Longevo range. A new adventure, joined by renowned musicians such as Andrew Gouchè, Jeff Berlin and Richard Bona.
