Solid-state bizarros, custom instruments, and shape-shifting digital dynamos power these lo-fi rockers' aural adventures.

Bassist and vocalist Toby Leaman has always been partial to J basses. Early on in the band’s career, Toby was using a cheap J and had it stolen. Being resourceful with what funding he had, he opted to build his own from various parts from StewMac. The only thing he really wanted when compiling the various appointments was finding a very thin neck. At some point the J-style pickups were swapped out by a former tech (Toby is unsure of the models) and he replaced its original knobs with those from his Orange OB1-500. Other than that, it’s been the same go-to beast for nearly 20 years.
