Dee Dee used Ampeg amps, and Fender P basses. Inspired by Dee Dee, Paul Simonon used Ampegs and P basses as well for the Clash

Most of the classic punk bass players were Ampeg users. The classic sound of 1970s punk was the P bass and the Ampeg bass. It probably why I still have a soft part of my heart for that combination.

No one would say that Dee Dee was the most technical of bassist; but he was the right bass player for the Ramones. And despite his personal addictions and demons, he was always there for the fans and pretty personable.

tbh i couldnt have put it better myself.

Dee Dee really set the standards for punk as it is today, about every big punk band i have seen live use Ampegs.Grushka has an SVT,Hoppus has an SVT and Chris #2 from Anti Flag is one of the coolest people i met (met him Friday ) and was open and i actually conversed on politics for a little while with him.Also he even admitted his rig was basic compared to many bands but it was his sound that really makes it.

It was an SVT and a Fender Geddy Lee Jazz bass he was using im sure of it even thouh i was a little drunk
