One Question Interviews: Dead

Jace (DEAD – bass)

SPB: What type of bass do you play and how did you choose it?

Jace: For live shows I have 2 Fender Precision basses. Both made in Japan, one from the mid ‘80s, one from the mid ‘90s.

I’ve changed the bridge on one and upgraded the pickups on both. One has a low action and suits faster material and playing chords, the other is set up higher and is great for really digging into a riff. I reckon Fender Precisions are great for powerful tone and are pretty much unbreakable.

My amp rig is a Gallien Krueger 800rb head running 2 Lorantz 4x10 cabs. I pretty much use this set up for power and reliability. 

Pedals are a Verellen Tofusmoke a Hughes and Kettner Tube Factor and a Boss tuner. I use the tube pedals to add a touch of depth to my tone and the Tube Factor has a stack of gain."

That's literally it! People always think we use a heap of effects.
