However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Revered as a six string bass playing virtuoso, Alain has taught masterclasses in the worlds major cities. To this day Alan has released more than 20 records and won numerous prizes, including 'Best Bass Player for 10 Years' in the magazine The Jazz Report.

The Mark Bass Combo 121 Lite has been manufcatured to deliver a sound specific to Alain Caron's jazz requirements, but still has the same warm, smooth tone that MarkBass are renowned for.

You can use either the BLE or Vintage Loudspeaker Emulator in order to achieve a more vintage tube amp sound which then in turn dials back on the response from the tweeter. A unique amp that pays testament to a unique player, the 121 Lite Combo is sure to add heaps of classic tone to your sound.
