    For the "main" heavy tone, he's primarily using a Fuzzrocious Rat Tail, Fulltone OCD, Swollen Pickle, and like the guitar player they both use the Akai Headrush looper.

    He used to have a Proco Rat, but has since been using the Fuzzrocious.

    Scroll down to the first amplifier (Meatsmoke). I believe this is the answer to your question.

    The newest album hurts my ears. Way too hot around 2.5k that it's actually painful. Station and Enter sound beautiful on each of the systems I listen through, but this one - ouch!

    Anyway, I think Brian may play a medium scale (32") bass as well. Is that correct?
