Rig Rundown: Killswitch Engage

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.


D’Antonio’s signal starts with his bass plugged into a Shure ULX-D Wireless that runs into a Whirlwind MultiSelector. Out of the MultiSelector, the signal runs into a Korg Pitchblack tuner (guarded by Chewbacca) to the Lehle P-Split, and then out of the P-Split into an EBS Billy Sheehan Signature Drive Bass pedal (guarded by Ultraman). The EBS MicroBass II Bass Preamp goes directly out of the Lehle P-Split to FOH for a clean signal and in-ear-monitor blending.
