Project Description

Mark Kroos, Guitar Wizard

Songwriter, Producer, Session Guitarist, Recording Artist

Mark Kroos is a touring and recording 2-neck guitarist, one of only a few in the world. In 2013, his video of “Dueling Banjos” exploded on YouTube, garnering over 1.1 million views. Mark has also competed in Guitar Player Magazine’s 2011 International Guitar Superstar Competition in Nashville for host Larry Carlton and renowned judges Muriel Anderson, Reeves Gabrels and Carl Verheyen, taking 1st place out of 5 invited competitors and thousands of others who had submitted online.
Mark had been looking for a portable, flexible system to take on the road that still sounded fantastic. His unique guitar and style requires a unique sound, and we recommended the Vanguard V1S+LOLLI Matched Pair Multi-Capsule Pencil Condenser System (serial #s 34-104). He quickly adopted his V1S+LOLLI as his go-to for guitar. From Mark:
I really did love the sound of these microphones. Definitely the best I’ve ever gotten my guitar to sound acoustically….I like these microphones about 10 times better than my old Neumann KM184.”
