That GWAR sound...

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by wicked mr happy, Feb 24, 2002.

  1. :confused: what type of pick up does Casey Orr (Beefcake The Mighty) of GWAR use on tracks such as "Happy Death Day," "Immortal Corruptor," and "Anti-Anti-Christ?" I'm looking to start playin bass and I want a bass with similar pickups to his.

    Thanks, and Gwar kicks ass

    I know this has been discussed before, but I couldn't find it when I searched, so here's what I know:

    Beef used a Fernandes APB-4 on Carnival of Chaos. I am not sure what he used on Violence Has Arrived, but when they play live, he uses a Washburn (I'm not sure of the model, but it has a sort of an X shape to it). I have also seen him use an Ibanez ICB (Iceman) bass and he recently sold a Fernandes Vertigo model and an Ibanez ATK that he played on the Ragnarok tour.

    He uses a pick and I believe he incorporates a bit of distortion into his sound as well.
