Even on borrowed gear, the metalcore pioneers are able to bring the thunder with a handful of ESP guitars, some Mesa/Boogie firepower, and a stash of gnarly fuzz pedals.
Doug Gillard, Mark Shue, and Bobby Bare Jr. reveal how a few quirky vintage axes, some classic amps, and a few utilitarian pedals get the job done night after night.
Go inside one of the hottest pop tours of 2018 and dig deep into the gear that Mike Scott, Elliott Ives, and JT himself take on the road.
Witness how 5-string Krautsters, solid-state Sunn heads, and pitch shifters provide the stoner-metal band’s foundation for brute-force tones.
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.
