  1. What kind of bass does the Interpol bass player use??~?? I love how it sounds, low and tight with a growl. Anyone know what it is or have a pic??~??

    It sounds very much like a growling vintage fender Jazz Bass to me.

  4. He was using a Jazz when I saw them in January. Pretty ass stage sound, I gotta say, but maybe that was the room.
     
  5. he uses a pick right??~??

  6. Yep. I think part of what makes people draw the spurious comparison between Interpol and Joy Division is that Interpol's bassist sounds kinda like Peter Hook, to the untrained ear.
