I don't know the band well, but from what I heard all you need to do is turn the volume all the way down...

But seriously, he uses Stingrays from what I understand, and that brands the tone so much, just getting a bass with an active bridge humbucker should pretty much do the trick. There's only one way to get that Stingray/GK tone - with a Stingray and a GK rig.

Doesn't a bass usually have a "low end tone?"


But yeah, Fitz pretty much got it, although I thought he used Sterling basses? They're pretty much the same as Stingrays anyway.

Probably is a Sterling. Dude's small and says he has really small hands so that seems to fit.

BTW I laugh and laugh and laugh every time I see a picture of him with his metal scowl...

it has a low sound for using a pick. thats what im saying. it has the aggression of the pick and stuff but no attack. no little extra brightness like in rancid and anit-flag.

I don't get why some bands even feel that it's "metal" to get stage names. It's pretty juvenile...


People who are truly metal don't bother, or have sweet names in the first place like Trey Azagthoth. Even if that isn't his real name (which I doubt it is), then there's no way you can disregard the metalness.

I'm not an Avenged Sevenfold fan but will stick up for them for the fact that who cares if they have stage names? They're probably just doing it for fun but I suppose nicknames aren't for you mature people!

Some things are just so status quo and by-the-numbers it's pathetic. Having a stage name and a metal scowl (with the name that's already been taken) is just so stale it's pathetic. However, fortunately for them, there are many, many people who just go along with the status quo and love by-the-numbers, such as yourself, so this kinda stuff lingers around.

Who cares if they have stage names? Who cares if they use their real names? It's beyond try-hard. People used to be really against try-hards, but now, people buy into it because their on the radio/tv/in magazines.
