Theresa plugs her Mustang into her Boss TU-2 tuner. From there, it hits her JHS Sweet Tea Overdrive, JHS PRestige buffered boost, Electro-Harmonix Pitch Fork and an EHX Small Stone Nano. Next is an EarthQuaker Devices Dispatch Master, Catalinbread Adineko, TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb, and a Boss DD-5 Digital Delay which sends the signal back to the amp.
Premier Guitar’s John Bohlinger caught Warpaint’s Emily Kokal and Theresa Wayman during a seemingly never ending tour. The childhood pals walked us through their funky, vintage and sometimes homemade gear before their gig at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley.
Bass tone of the day: 1983 Squier JV Jazz into a pair of ‘77 Fender Silverface Twins. One going to the 2x15″, the other going to the 4x12″ stack, both being pushed with Mintone ‘More’ pedals. And a D.I’d Sansamp VT for luck.
One of Theresa’s most prized instruments is a bass made for her by Stella Mozgawa’s father. The neck, tuners, bridge, and pickup came from some ‘60s-era Fender P basses. The source of the body remains a mystery. Theresa keeps it strung with flatwounds.
