Clutch’s Dan Maines
Bassist Dan Maines has played many basses (Fender, Lakland, Gibson), but starting with the 2017 winter tour (when we conducted a Rig Rundown) he’s been using this Rickenbacker 4003 with the Ric-O-Sound stereo jack. With the help of his tech, Maines uses a homemade pedal to split the pickups to their own Ampeg cabs—the neck hits the 1x15 and the bridge goes into the 8x10. And he has a third signal—a DI—that goes to front of house.
