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.

For the acoustic numbers where he’s plunking around on the standup bass, Stubblefield goes into the Genz Benz Shuttle 9.2 that offers 900 watts in a four-pound package. For the electric stuff, he routes his signal through a Hartke Kilo 1000 that has a 12AX7-loaded preamp section pushing out 1000 watts.

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.
