Christian Olde Wolbers's Basses

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by PanteraFan, Apr 23, 2001.


  1. I know that Christian Olde Wolbers of Fear Factory used to use 5-string ESP's on their records and performances, but on the new album(Digimortal) he uses 5-string Fenders with one(count em, 1) pot on the bass. I wanna know which model Fender this is, and whether that pot is for tone or volume.

    From the pictures I've seen it looks like he plays the Roscoe Beck Model 5 string, most likely custom shop ones. That's what he was playing on the last tour in and in all the studio photo's I've seen. No idea what the 1 knob would be fore though, in most cases when people do this it's a volume know but you never now. Hope this helps.

    Pick up the new issue of Bass Player. There's a big article on him in there, and it explains his basses a little bit.
     
  4. They don't sell Bass Player in any magazine shop I've ever been in round here(Manchester, England). And no, I'm not gonna get a subscription. Why? Because I've never read it, I might hate the format, and there are too many people who have trouble with subscriptions. I see plenty of Guitar Technique, Guitar Magazine, etc.:rolleyes:
