Cold's Lindsay Manfredi: ”There’s a feeling when you’re playing bass. It’s different from other instruments”

”I have a Fender Precision, Jaguar and Mustang,” says Cold bassist Lindsay Manfredi, “and I have an endorsement with Diamond Guitars, who are making custom Maverick and Hailfire II basses for me. They both have Seymour Duncan pickups and active preamps. For amps, I use a Darkglass Alpha Omega preamp and an Ashdown ABM 500, both of which I really love.” 

Manfredi, bassist with the rock band Cold since 2014, recently published a self-help book called Unfuckwithable: A Guide To Inspired Badassery, which details her journey through serious personal tribulations. Its tone is optimistic, though, as befits a book that functions as a source of advice for anyone navigating their way through a tricky time in life.
