Ampeg’s the Only One for Bass Ace Chris Wyse

Lauded for his work with The Cult and Ace Frehley, as well as with his own trio, Owl, in the world of bass guitar there’s not much Chris Wyse can’t do. He’s also played with the likes of Mick Jagger, Ozzy Osborne, Tal Bachman and Scott Weiland. A major factor in his tone is his bass amp. “When I finally got the Ampeg backline with the full SVT, I felt like King Christopher,” says Wyse. “I love the natural compression that comes from the gain.”
