Mark Shoebottom working at Aristides Instruments

Mark Shoebottom recently graduated Southampton Solent in (BA) Hons Popular Music Performance. But he hasn’t rested on his laurels and has landed himself a job at Aristides Instruments.

Aristides Instruments was formed in 1995, a team of Dutch scientists, working in collaboration with Technical University Delft, started work on a unique mission: develop a material with perfect acoustic properties. The primary emphasis being on resonance and sustain. With huge artists using their revolutionary design for sessions and live performances.

“From the first moment that I saw the futuristic design of Aristides Instruments, I was fascinated to learn how they sounded and felt. Upon receiving my first guitar from them, I knew that no other instrument would compare in both play-ability and sonic properties.

“Through regular communication with the Aristides team and after the release of my debut EP, If Not Now, I was put on their artist roster and became an official endorser for the company. I now use and represent Aristides Instruments in all aspects of my musical career – from videos on my social media, to live performances and of course recordings. It is an honour to be a part of such a wonderful list of artists and to have been welcomed into the Aristides family.”
