    A la this thread :

    Unfortunately, I don't have any info to start with, but I am really curious and couldn't find this all in one place. Lots of "XXXX's live amp" threads, but I was hoping for something more consolidated with lots of pictures. Thanks if you can help!
  2. Brian Cook (These Arms Are Snakes, Russian Circles, Botch):


    Bass> Pedalboard> SVT-4 (run totally flat)> Emperor 4x12 and Emperor 1x18.

    Nick Harmer (Death Cab For Cutie):


    Bass> Pedalboard> Ashdown ABM 900 EVO II> (2) Ashdown NEO 2x15 Cabinets.

    Tim Ward (formerly of The Fall Of Troy):


    Bass> Pedalboard> Ampeg SVT-1000/SVT-3> Ampeg 810e

    More to come later.
  3. Randy Brabury - Pennywise


    Bass> possibly rack effects> SVT 2Pro> (2) Ampeg 8x10's.. He also has a Fender bassman 1200 in his rack and this year he has been using an Ampeg SVT VR (or vintage) or saw a few photos with a CL..

    Ben Kenney (Incubus) has used several rigs since he has been in Incubus. However, all of them have been Mesa Boogie rigs.

    Lakland basses -> pedalboard -> Mesa Boogie Walkabout Scout 1x12 (x2) -> Mesa Boogie Scout Bass Radiator 1x12 (x2)



    Lakland basses -> pedalboard -> Mesa Boogie Big Block 750 -> Mesa Boogie Powerhouse 8x10

    He used an ampeg SVT-1000. Solid state with the EQ sliders. You can see it better in some of their other pictures.
  7. My mistake. He also has used SVT-3s on some occasions. Editing original post now.

    I can't find the pictures, but if I do, I have some good shots of Cory from Minus the Bear's rig.

    I think the best pics I have are when he still had the Mesa 400+ and Mesa 8x10. He then moved to an Ampeg SVT-CL/810e, and most recently he had an ashdown EVO series.

    Manny Carrero of Glassjaw/Saves the Day (not my pic):


    92 Fender Precision Plus, Ampeg SVT-II Pro, Ampeg 810e. Uses a boss tu2, fulltone bass drive, what looks like a morely wah, and another boss pedal I couldn't make out. Dark color, three knobs, maybe a trem?
  9. looks like and SVT II non pro..

    Brian Kienlen - Bouncing Souls

    saw the souls last night (the picture is not form last night)

    this what i could tell from what he had on stage

    he had his 60 something jazz ---> svt 4 pro ---> 2 ampeg 8x10s

    his tone was a whole lot cleaner than it usually is, the only disappointment of their set.

    he did have a much older looking ampeg tube amp (looked like a CL) sitting on top of his racked svt4pro but it was on standby the entire time and didnt have anything plugged into the front inputs.
  15. Cory has also been recording with a Verellen Meat Smoke:


    And here's another pick of Manny, this time using an Aguilar DB750:

    This one's a Basslab.
    Last year when I saw them, he was using his Spector.

    And there's the unforgettable Johnny April rig.


    From Bass Player (Nov 2008, pg 28)

    Spector Bass > Avalon 737sp preamp > Crown Microtech power amps > 2 Ampeg SVT810 cabs + 2 custom Ampeg 2x18 cabs + 4 JBL Horns.

    I saw Staind live when they were in Waterloo, IA and it was awesome. I tried snapping a picture of his rig with my phone after everyone started clearing out but couldn't get a good shot. :meh:

    This is the best I could get:


    It was way more impressive in person.
