Bassist Nate Query plays a Lakland 4-string electric bass, an upright bass and a cello. In his amp rack, he uses two Aguilar AG 500 bass heads: one for the electric and the other powers the upright and the cello. Query also uses two Aguilar bass cabinets: a 4x10 and a 2x12. For switching sounds and instruments, he had Bradshaw build a custom mixer with a pedal switch. His rig is miked with an Audix D4, and he sings through an Audix OM-5. The electric bass direct signal comes from the direct out on his Aguilar head, and the standup bass direct signal comes from a Radial J48 DI.
