Bass tech Nathan Yaccino. “Ben’s rig consists of two amps, a Mesa M6 Carbine and an Ampeg SVT-VR,” Yaccino says. "“The Mesa has a clean, unaffected signal, while the Ampeg is a dirtier, more saturated sound with all his pedals running through it. We have been using a Shure Beta 98 on the Ampeg 8x10 cab. People ask about it all the time because typically they are used on drums. Dave Rat, Soundgarden’s previous FOH engineer, has been using those for bass miking for a while. Although Dave isn’t running FOH for them anymore, we’ve kept that mic. It sounds good!"
