    Does anyone know precisely for the amp? What amp Adam Duce is using? :bassist:
  5. He uses Zon Sonus Basses and Ampeg SVT Classic amps with SVT 8 X10 cabs according to bass guitar magazine...

    Yep...I'll tell ya for sure when I see them next month!
  7. I think his best bass tone was The More Things Change, that's some seriously dirty growl goin on there. :hyper:

    The opening to Take My Scars, when played at high volume, has the power to re-arrange your insides.

    He shows his bass and his amp and rack stuff on a machine dvd, free with the special edition album ..
  9. He's using a Sansamp PSA-1 together with his Ampeg SVT Classic.

    If it's a stock Zon... Bartolini's.
  12. I saw them live with Trivium and Chimeara about 2 years ago now.

    He was using his Orange Zon Sonus with the one bartolini (MK1?) in the bridge with the one volume knob and switch or tone know (cant remember). From what I could make out of his amps, it was definitely Ampeg. He sounds really good live, even though I don't care much for MH's music.
