This month, we speak to Level 42’s Mark King about 40 years of remarkable bass playing and the initially-surprising success the band received. We also speak to singer-songwriter Lynda Kay about her friendship with Lemmy, Dimmu Borgir’s Victor Brandt and Cher Bassist Ashley Reeve, as well as look at Mark Rowe’s unbelievable 12-string bass collection.
In our gear section, we test the new Marleaux Contra, the Jackson CBXM X-Series David Ellefson signature models and the Hartke LX8500. Elsewhere, our renowned bass education columns return, with lessons from the great Steve Lawson, Phil Mann and Stuart Clayton. All this and more in this month's essential guide to all things low and lofty.
