Chris Chaney

Bassist with Jane’s Addiction, Royal Machines

Chris Chaney is a top session player in Los Angeles who has recorded and/or toured with many bands including Jane’s Addiction, Alanis Morissette, Shakira, Carlos Santana, Joe Satriani, Tommy Lee, Celine Dion, Rob Zombie, and many others.  He was also the primary bassist on Slash’s 2010 solo album, and played on over 25 film scores and movie soundtracks.

Chris has been a full-time member of Jane’s Addiction since 2011, and is in the allstar band Royal Machines with fellow bandmate Dave Navarro.  Recently he added the Amptweaker Bass TightFuzz to his tone arsenal and had this to say about it:

Amptweaker’s Bass TightFuzz is a game changer, you can tweak the fuzz to the desired level and retain huge bottom end or just add a bit of wooly gain to your sound to fatten things up. It’s such a versatile pedal, this just scratches the surface.” – Chris Chaney
