The GV5 Gloxy Val MP 5-string electric bass is part of Markbass’ GV Series—their range of bass guitars that demonstrate their ability to produce a high-quality instrument at an incredible price. This achievement is a direct result of their tireless work to compare the quality and price of parts and materials from a wide range of suppliers. Markbass chose only the best components for their Gloxy series, maintaining their focus on excellent value for money.

Playability, Comfort and Quality Assurance
The bass neck has the same characteristics as the Markbass JP series of
instruments—inherent playability and comfort. The balance of each string is accurate and defined, without any “boomy” resonant frequencies, even across the fifth string's range. Each instrument is inspected for quality against Markbass’ strict requirements at their headquarters in Italy. Gloxy series bass guitars receive the same standard of care and attention as their higher end instruments.

MB Instrument Pre

The Gloxy series is equipped with the same MB Instrument Pre that is featured on Markbass’ premium range of instruments. This onboard preamp is designed from the ground up by Markbass to faithfully reproduce the sound of your instrument. Changes in the volume level when switching from Active to Passive and back again are almost imperceptible—a unique feature of the exceptional circuitry inside. Simple and ergonomic controls allow you to richly boost or cut your EQ without clipping or distorting the signal—even at the maximum settings—allowing the MB Instrument Pre to work with you in any environment.

Gig Bag Included
All instruments in the Markbass GV Series come with the MB Bass Bag Universal to keep your new purchase safe. Like all Markbass products, this case is made to their precise quality standards, without compromise.
