This dynamic art-rock duo uses a classy combo of vintage Hofners, Gretsches, Selmers, and a few secret weapons to create a mesmerizing original sound.
Hince has increased his previous two-amp setup to four amp combinations, all on, for a blended tone. He uses a Divided by 13 FTR 37 for a bright reverby sound, a Selmer Zodiac for cleans, a Selmer head with Divided by 13 cab for a wooly low end, and a 1950s Magnatone 280. “I can’t get the sound I want out of one amp, that’s why I use all these,” explains Hince. “It’s not for volume.”
Hince has been collecting Selmers since 1995, when he found three heads for 90 quids, or about $120. He now has about 10 Selmer heads. “They’ve got really beautiful British tone, loads of low end, and you can blend all that in.”
