OCTOBER TOUR: Equipment

 

* Per U2 Magazine. Vol. # 2. February 1982  *

Ibanez Musician – brown finish [2]: One of the two, the lesser used “Musician” has an active pre-amp built in. The main “Musician” bass is ‘standard’.

 

EFFECTS:

No effects. 

AMPLIFIERS:

Ampeg SVT400 watt – 8x10 bass stack: Ran both direct and mic’d with Sennheiser MD421 

INFORMATION:

[Per U2 Magazine]

 

Adam uses two Ibanez Musician basses, one with an active pre-amp built in, the other standard, although he often seems to play the standard instrument throughout.

 

This was fed direct into an Ampeg SVT400 watt 8x10 bass stack with no effects units or other gadgetry at all. This was both DI'ed and mic’d using a Sennheiser MD421.

 

Adam also uses Shure SM58 vocal microphone.
