TC Electronic & Level 42
One of the world’s most influential bass players uses TC Electronic’s award-winning bass rig on the Level 42 30th Anniversary tour.
British thumb wizard Mark King chose a TC Electronic Bass Amp 2.0 rig for Level 42’s 30th Anniversary tour. The tour had dates across the UK and Germany with Mark’s impressive bass rig bolstered by a TC Electronic RH450 bass amp as well as two RS410 cabinets – the ideal combination to fire up his razor-sharp, thumbing lines.
Level 42 formed back in 1980 and quickly hit the top of the charts with melodic, rhythmically advanced pop hits, such as Running In The Family and Lessons In Love, that were characterized by Mark King’s very percussive slap bass lines. Mark King brought this unique bass playing style to the masses and has been a huge inspiration to the next generation of slapping masters. Today he is widely regarded as one of the ‘thumb’ masters along with luminaries such as Larry Graham, Bootsy Collins, Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller.
“Having been a long-time user and fan of TC Electronic effects both on the road and in the studio, it is a real pleasure to be using the RH450 bass amp and RS cabs. The high fidelity I’d come to expect from TC Electronic is right there in the sound from the punchy bass to the snappy highs, and the programmability is spot on. Nice one TC!”
