dUg Pinnick

Bassist/Singer with King’s X

dUg Pinnick is known first and foremost as the soulful singer and bassist for hard rockers King’s X.  A generation of musicians have been inspired by their Beatle-esque harmonies and monster hard rock grooves.  dUg’s bass tone is instantly identifiable, and his particular fondness for the 12-String and heavy bass tones are a fundamental component of King’s X’s sound and groove.  Check out this awesome Bass TightDrive demo dUg wrote and recorded!

dUg has also released several solo recordings, and recently recorded bass and vocal tracks as a guest on Hydrogyn’s upcoming album ‘Judgement’ for a song titled “Big Star”.  In January 2010, ex-Megadeth guitarist Jeff Young joined the Ashland, Kentucky based hard-rock/metal group, which now consists of vocalist Julie Westlake, guitarists Jeff Westlake and Jeff Young, Joe Migz on drums, and  ex-Megadeth/Black Label Society/White Lion bassist James Lomenzo.  dUg said he used the Bass TightDrive on this recording, and recently picked up the Bass TightFuzz, which he likes to use for cleaner tones.

dUg actually wrote a song for this awesome demo, and this is recorded with a dry bass track blended with the original Bass TightDrive…..and this inspired the Dry Low knob we now offer for this pedal, and include on most of the Bass pedals.

Bass TightDrive: “Tell the world that I LOVE THIS THING!!!” 
Bass TightFuzz: “I have been using it for some bass tracking, I like it for clean bass, it’s perfect for tracking as re-enforcement…..Great tones.”   -dUg
