    I have a Markbass 104HR that says it was designed in Italy, assembled in Malaysia. Just bought a Markbass 102HR and on the back it says made in Italy. Where is Markbass making their equipment? I also have a Markbass SD1200 that says made in Italy.
    Can anyone shed some light?
    Thanks

    The blackline products are supposedly made in Indonesia.

    This isn't the Black Line. I have a Markbass 104HR.

    Well, they are making some stuff in Italy and some in Malaysia, it seems. I guess I don't get the question, because it seems you already have the answer.

    Okay.... Again. I have a Markbass SD1200 head, 102P cabinet. On the back it says made in Italy.
    I also have a Markbass 104HR cab (not the Blackline series). On the back it says Designed in Italy and assembled in Malaysia.
    Is Markbass making their equipment in Malaysia now?

    AlexanderB, if you don't know the answer fully, why did you respond?

    It sounds like your cabinet was assembled in Malaysia... so apparently yes.

    Certainly looks like it.
