One Question Interviews: Vincas

Gene Woolfolk III (Vincas - guitar)

SPB: What type of guitar do you play for live gigs and how/why did you choose it?

Woolfolk: I have a plethora of large, heavy tube amps but none of them fit in a minivan. Chris lets me use his Musicman HD-130 2x10 combo for Vincas because I need something loud, clean, fits in a minivan, and most importantly, backbreakingly heavy. Scotty uses an HD-130 as well. We call ourselves the “Music Men” because we think we’re clever.

To be honest, I think I’m going to switch over to a Roland JC-120 whenever we start playing shows again because maybe I’ll want something lighter in the future. Who knows how old and decrepit I’ll be when shows happen again. The JC-120 is cold and lifeless, like my soul. It fits the bill. Plus, I like to run some of my modulation, delays, and reverbs in stereo and it’s the amp I’ll be using for my synthpop band, Dream Tent. Another bonus of having a solid state amp is that I don’t have to worry about those pesky lightbulbs failing on me.
