In This Moment bassist Travis Johnson has given All Axess an exclusive rundown of his live rig. Check it out in the video below.
Johnson, along with In This Moment lead guitarist Chris Howorth and guitarist Randy Weitzel, uses Krank heads and cabinets. Johnson runs a Dirty Valve D800 head through a 2×12/4×10 cabinet. “This thing’s a monster,” Johnson stated. “So much more girth and depth than just a standard 8×10…Nothing but good things to say about Krank,” he added.
For live performances, Johnson has two primary bass guitars, a Schecter Elite-4 and a 5-string Schecter Studio-5. “The Schecter Elite 4, it’s for my c-tuning,” Johnson explained. “[It's got a] really fast neck, really easy to play…easy to rock.”
Johnson uses his Schecter Studio-5 for In This Moment songs that are tuned down to a and b. “This is really light too, considering it’s a five [string bass]. This is like my main [bass] for all the low-tuning [In This Moment songs].”
Meanwhile, In This Moment have today (Tuesday, 12 June) launched the title track from their upcoming full-length album ‘Blood,’ which is set to hit stores on August 14 via Century Media Records.
