Ever wonder how a band without a bass player can recreate that huge, crushing presence in songs like The Glass Bridge live? That’s all thanks to this killer rhythm tone specifically designed by Javier to reproduce the tight low end, focused midrange and articulate highs that have become so synonymous with Animals As Leaders sound.
