Rotosound talks to Level 42 frontman, Mark King, about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected his life, why he first picked up the bass, and why he has used Rotosound strings throughout his career. Mark takes questions from fans including how often he changes his strings (it’s a lot!), if he plays double bass, and whether he has any dreams yet to be fulfilled.
Filmed as part of NAMM’s Believe In Music Week 2021.
