Tim Commerford is currently pulling double duty by touring with his new project Wakrat, which opens for his other project, Prophets of Rage. In spite of doing two soundchecks and two shows per night, Commerford was kind enough to meet with PG’s John Bohlinger to give us a look at his mighty rig.
Tim Commerford has played a lot of different basses over the years, but recently switched back to the Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay. Commerford travels with a bevy of stock StingRays that are strung up with Ernie Ball Slinky strings (.50–.105). For Wakrat, all the basses live in a pair of tunings: C#–G#–C#–F# or D#–G#–C#–F.
For Commerford’s clean tone, he uses a 1978 Ampeg Classic SVT running into an Ampeg PR-810H cabinet.
