One of metalcore’s biggest bands allows PG to check out their signature instruments and the minimal gear they use to punish crowds on a nightly basis.

The band’s bassist, Mike D’Antonio, only tours with signature basses. His current go-to is a 2015 prototype for his Ibanez MDB4-WH Mike D’Antonio Signature model that has a Seymour Duncan Steve Harris SPB-4 signature P-bass pickup and a Seymour Duncan SJB-3 Quarter Pounder J-bass pickup. D’Antonio’s #2 is his 2016 Ibanez MDB4 Mike D’Antonio Signature production model with a custom Seymour Duncan P-style pickup and a Seymour Duncan SJB-3 Quarter Pounder. Both basses are strung with DR Hi-Beams (.055–.120) and are tuned to drop C.
