The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bass player, Flea, is using the GHS Flea Signature Bass Boomers and Rocktron’s MIDI Mate on their ongoing ‘The Getaway World Tour’.
Legendary bassist, Flea, co-founder and composer with the one of the world’s best-selling bands was voted second best bassist of all time in a reader’s poll for Rolling Stone magazine, second only to John Entwistle. His original bass playing style has influenced and been copied by generations of bass players.
Flea uses his GHS Flea Signature Bass Boomers to help provide the hard, driving bottom end that is a crucial part of the Chili’s signature sound.
He also uses a Rocktron MIDI Mate, an intelligent, problem free, foot controller that allows him to take full advantage of fully programming his gear. It enables presets to easily be recalled and modified without the need to switch modes, a real bonus when playing live.
The multi Grammy Award winning band the Red Hot Chili Peppers have sold more than eighty million records worldwide. Their latest album The Getaway was released earlier in 2016 and they are currently on the USA leg of their world tour.
