One Question Interviews: Tongue Party

Adam (Tongue Party – bass)

SPB: What is your amp setup and how did you choose to pair that with your guitar?

Adam: So I used to use nothing but old Peavey bass heads but I kept frying them and blowing them the fuck up. I love that old Peavey gear though. That being said, the mix I’m working now has never failed and I’m fucking myself with that statement, fuck it.

I’m running an Acoustic 370 bass head into a Peavey 1810 bass cab and a Sunn Concert Lead into a Peavey 412, an ‘80s model I’m pretty sure. Both heads run to an A/B switch and from there into my pedal board and into a Fender Telecaster Modern Player. A rugged fat li’l fella of a guitar. It’s been on every Tongue Party recording, played every local and touring date, it can hang like a motherfucker.

I wanted to mention an important piece of gear in my tone which is the Pigtronix Disnortion pedal. This ugly fucker is where the heavy, dirty low end fuzz comes from, along with the guitar this pedal has been with since the beginning. It’s a main component of my tone. I bought it off a friend and he told me it would change everything, it fucking did.
