Rig Rundown: Stone Sour

Guitarists Josh Rand and Christian Martucci, as well as bassist Johny Chow, provide the dirt on how a revamped lineup of axes (with passive pickups), no bass amps, and a fresh pile of pedals have reenergized the band’s hard-rock sound.

Guitarists Josh Rand, Christian Martucci (above right), and bassist Johny Chow spent over an hour with PG’s Chris Kies before the band’s gig at Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium. Josh and Christian show off a whole new lineup of gear, including cherry axes making their live debut and revamps on their boards, while Johny proves you don’t need amps to rock out the low-end rumble.
