Justin in Bass Guitar

Slicknickshady on Toolnavy has come up with the goods again, and shares with us some snippets from a recent Justin Chancellor interview in Bass Guitar magazine.  Here’s my favorite grab:

Chancellor’s sound begins with the active pickups in his four-string birds-eye maple and mahogany Wal bass, which he bought shortly after he joined Tool in 1995 for rehearsals that would lead to the compleation of Aenima. At the time, his main bass was a Music Man StingRay he used with the Brit Prog-Psychedelic band Peach, but there was something about the instrument that wasnt capturing the punch of original Tool bassist Paul D’Amour. “The StingRay tended to dissapear on the faster songs” Recalling on the blistering line D’Amour laid down for the track Bottom off of the 1993 breakthrough Undertow. “I’d get a rumble at the bottom , a little click on the top, and nothing much in the middle. When we were tracking for Aenima, Ken Andrews from Failure, He’s a friend of Adams, was in the studio and happend to mention that a Wal would be great with Tool. So he brought [ex-Failure guitarist] Greg Edwards ax with him and told me to give it a go, and it immediately struck. I ordered one from England and I haven’t looked back since”
