Industry Standards


Recommended Posts

Interested in industry standards for different genres, some aspects may change for individuals but let’s try and keep to the general set ups. I’ll start off with Punk/Oi:


Fender Precision 

Steel Roundwound Strings

Sansamp Bass Driver

Ampeg SVT

Almost every gig I've been provided with a bass rig that all the bands use, or festivals I have been to watch the bass rigs have mostly been some kind of Ampeg, next popular would  Ashdown with about equal measures of Eden and Markbass. So I would say Ampeg rigs are still the standard for most genres. As for instruments FSO's are still the ones I see mostly on stages, on tv concerts or videos, regardless of genre so I would again think they are still industry standard. That said there are obviously individual variances and my setups are far from industry standard.

Not sure I'd agree with this...


The majority of the major players, especially in the britpop era, tended to gravitate towards P, J or MM.


Oasis (original bassist) - Jazz/Tele

Blur - P/MM

Elastica - MM

Pulp - P/J/MM

Travis - P

Radiohead - P/MM

Shed 7 - P/MM

Mansun - J

The Verve - J
