DEVILDRIVER’S MIKE SPREITZER TALKS ABOUT HIS RIG ON METALSUCKS.NET…

Posted on September 26, 2011

DEVILDRIVER guitarist Mike Spreitzer had to sit out the band’s recent South American tour after suffering a seizure but fans will be glad to hear that he’s back on the road with the band now. He recently contributed to MetalSucks.net’s “Rigged” column, where guitarists talk about the equipment that they use instate. Mike had the following to say:

“My live rig signal chain starts with my ESP MS-1 guitar loaded with EMG 81 pickups and Dunlop Strings (sizes 10-13-17-30-42-63). We usually tune to Drop-C except for a few songs that we play in D-Standard. We have two songs that were recorded with a 7-string guitar tuned to Drop-A, but we have never played them live. The body and neck of my guitar is made from mahogany and my fret board is made from ebony. From my experience I find mahogany is a good wood for metal guitarists and one of the most popular in the genre.”
