Rise Against Bassist Is Selling Some of His Gear Online
Loudwire reports that the Rise Against member (who's been in the band since the beginning) has collected a good amount of instruments and gear over the last couple of decades, and now he's clearing some of it out.
'Principe has teamed with Reverb to launch his own online Reverb shop where he's selling off some of the items used to help record The Sufferer and the Witness, Endgame, Siren Song of the Counter Culture and more band favorites,' Loudwire said.
If you're a fan and collector with a couple grand, you could own some of Principe's gear, including Fender basses, amplifiers, road cases and even tuners starting at $65.
Loudwire shared that Principe is selling a 'Fender P Bass American '57 Reissue US Vintage Series that was used by Principe during the recording of the album The Sufferer & the Witness and the tour following its 2006 release.'
The album was produced at The Blasting Room Studios in Fort Collins and released on July 4, 2006. You can see the bass in the 'Prayer of the Refugee' video.
Also for sale is the bass he used on Blasting Room-produced Endgame (2011). It features the song 'Help is on the Way,' 'the group's first song to reach the Billboard Hot 10,' according to Loudwire.
