    I thought all he would use is a bunch of compressors.

    Super weird that he keeps a Ridge Farms Gas Cooker in his power amp rack. It's practically the only boutique piece in his rig.

    What I find interesting is him using a BDDI and XXL. I thought he endorsed (or was endorsed by) MXR and used the M-80, or whatever the bass DI is called.

    EDIT: based on my use of a PDDI in the past I must say that between the BDDI and the SVT 2-Pro all tube amps he shouldn't need any compression. He'd get all the compression "effect" he needs from pushing the tubes in the amps, and going for at least a light overdrive on the BDDI.

    haha... thats pretty funny. i seriously would have thought he had a comp though?? he moves around a lot on stage and i would think that keeping a steady attack with his fingers would be hard.

    maybe its just his live rig? i wonder what he uses the q-tron for?
     
  11. he is a lot into funk music, atleast the internet says that. maybe he is giving some taste of it all to james, lars and kirk occasionally :eek::smug::ninja::D
     
  12. Strange considering he uses a wah for Orion, End Of The Line & For Whom The Bell Tolls. And theres no wah at all in his rig :S Strange stuff

    You should hear him tear it up on some old Infectious Grooves records.
     

  14. Someone really needs to shoot the label people making these decisions. I hear so many albums these days destroyed by this crap.:scowl::scowl:

    For distortion. Lots of bassists (who carry large stage rigs or have roadies) use a guitar amp for their distortion channel.

    It sounds good even in the POD X3 world -- and is much easier to carry.
     

  20. According to wikipedia he uses a Morley Mark Tremonti Wah.
