Bill Lloyd, long term guitarist and sound designer for Placebo has recently added two VOX AX30H2s to their already impressive rig. Bill’s choice of the amps were down to the “Great versatility for recreating that classic Vox 60s sound and the bonus of selecting the newer Vox sound as well.” He also commented that they were “Also great for amping keyboards and reliable live”.
Be sure to check out the band’s new website placeboworld.co.uk for the latest news, including a preview of their forthcoming album ‘Battle For The Sun’. Placebo currently have a pretty hectic schedule touring Europe; they’ll be stopping by Inverness for the Rock Ness in June, then coming back to the UK in August to play dates at the Reading and Leeds festivals.
