I would be most grateful if anyone were to know what his rig is.
I'd be shocked if it wasn't SVT all the way...
The only thing I'm aware of him ever using other than the SVTs was the crappy little amp he had just as the Clash were starting out. Other than that it's pretty much bass--> amp.
Basses were mostly Precisions, one of which he's had since 1978, though the first record was done with a Rickenbacker, an Epiphone Rivoli hollowbody was used on some of Sandinista and London Calling, and a Wal was used for part of Give 'Em Enough Rope (their second album).
Cool. Figured it'd be pretty basic. I should've known SVT, though.
Oh and rather than start a new thread, does anyone know what amp Peter Hook used during Unknown Pleasures?
Pretty sure Hiwatt for Hooky.
FWIW I seem to recall Paul used 2x15's under his SVT head. Dunno where I saw that but it's stuck in my head.
One of my fave bassists. Every time I go back and listen to The Clash I hear some new little subtlety in his parts.
2X15 was pretty standard at the time.
He uses an Ampeg SVT and 810 with Gorillaz. In The Clash he used one as well. Earlier in the band's career he used Acoustics, but I have no idea exactly which model.

Paul simonon's sound mostly comes from his coolness hahaha. but you can get close to with an old p bass with old roundwounds on it. for peter hook, he used a rickenbacker copy on the 1st album, and yamaha p bass (dont know what model it is) on the second. both are great records
Sorry to resurrct. Hooky used a sunburst Hondo Rickenbacker 4001 copy into a Marshall 100 Watt head.
