  2. the bass player (Chris Wolstenholme) seems to use a different bass every time I see them play live- Bass Collection 4's, and on TOTP last night he was using a Pedulla Rapture with a single p/up.
    it could be a Stingray on the records.

    a constant factor is that he does use distortion in most of the songs.

    I quite like his style. What effects does he use? The sound i like in particular is the one used on 'Plug in baby'
