One Question Interviews: War//Plague

Vern (War//Plague-bass)

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

Vern: I am currently playing a Gibson RD bass. I also have an LTD Eclipse bass with EMG active pick-ups but was looking for something classic with passive pick-ups. I stumbled upon the RD at a local guitar shop in town and fell in love with how easy it was to play and how well balanced it was. It has an extra-long neck so the sustain on it is insane. 

I play an Ampeg SVT 2 head and two Minnesota-made David Eden 4x10 XLTs. I use one distortion all the time and switch around between a few different ones. My goal for my sound is to add girth to the power chords and bottom end to the melodies of the guitars and/or sometimes harmonize with certain guitar parts. For my picking I always try to stay in rhythm with whatever beat Chad is playing.
