Rig Rundown: Lucero

The country-punkers out of Memphis share the roadworthy gear that allows them to seamlessly blend neo-Stax soul and barroom rock 'n' roll.

Like his 6-string counterpart, Nichols rocks a three-pedal setup that includes stomps from EHX, MXR, and Boss. The only difference is Nichols’ preference for the MXR Classic Distortion because it tends to be more midrange focused.

PG’s Chris Kies catches up with Lucero’s Brian Venable, Ben Nichols, and John C. Stubblefield before the band’s first tour date in support of All a Man Should Do at Nashville’s Cannery Ballroom.
