Vintage Guitar - July 2016 - Open - 43
dUg Pinnick. Unmistakable in every way --that voice,
the songwriting, his style, and, of course, the dUg tone.
Since the formation of King's X in the '80s, dUg has
been one of the most influential players to garner
attention for the then hardly used, 12-string bass.
dUg also devised his own method of using guitar and
bass amps together to merge high-end distortion with
low-end bass. The combination resulted in a sound
as subtle as a freight train, yet ironically musical and sensitive. Just like dUg.
And just like dUg, there is an unconventional structure
to the design of his Signature Ultra Bass 1000 bass amp
head. The intent is to use both channels mixed or the Bottom channel by itself. The Top channel handles distorted
guitar amp tones and the Bottom provides a clean (yes,
clean!) pre-amp and compressor for more conventional
bass amp sounds. Mixed together, you get dUg.
We are honored dUg chose Tech 21 to collaborate with in
the creation of his own signature amp, the dUg Ultra Bass
1000. For uncontrollable smiles and endless grooves, get
one of your own today.
