Gear Tour: August Burns Red Bassist Dustin Davidson
Fresh off the release of their new album, Leveler, Pennsylvania's August Burns Red are currently on tour as part of the Vans Warped Tour.
ABR bassist Dustin Davidson was nice enough to take the time out of his tour schedule to send us some shots of his gear and talk about why he uses his weapons of choice. Check out the gallery below!
August Burns Red released Leveler on June 21, 2011 through Solid State Records. You can check out more from the band on their Facebook page.
"And last but not least... If I were stranded on an island I better have my Ampeg SVT-VR because I don't know what I'd do without it! This head is powerful and has got balls! Combine it with my 8x10 SVT cab, SansAmp RBI, and Ibanez SR5000E and you got my rig!"
"I know it's hard to see in the picture but the rackmount SansAmp RBI plays a huge roll in my tone. It supplies the gain and crunchiness that I need to make my bass stand out amongst the guitars and I wouldn't survive in the music world without it!"
The new album from August Burns Red, Leveler, is out now!
"For bass I use the Ibanez SR5000E. I use this bass because of its sleek looks, sick tone, slim prestige neck, and light weight! I move around a lot on stage and I definitely need a light bass!"
