een lijstje van John's gear:
In the beginning, between 1971 and 1972, John used a Rickenbacker 4001 bass guitar, but had trouble recording with it. Because of that, he switched from this instrument to a Fender Jazz Bass for a very short time and then in 1972 went for a Fender Precision, which became his main and personally typical instrument practically for the rest of his career (that year he was given a 1965 model by the record company and second Precision 1968 model he bought in 1974). Over time, he modified these two pieces in different ways, especially visually. Over the years, in some of the tracks he also used a Music Man StingRay, Kramer DMZ 4001, Fender Precision Bass Elite, Fender Telecaster Bass, fretless Fender Precision, Warwick Buzzard, Wal Pro Bass. According to the information available, J.D. used Rotosound RS77 LD 045 Bass flatwound strings and Superwound 606 roundwound strings. Not much is known about the bass equipment, but it is obvious that John had it sorted with great complexity (for instance, it was set up by the acclaimed Pete Cornish). He changed the equipment frequently and also combined different brands of individual components, the known ones being Orange AD200B, SWR SM-900, SWR Goliath, Sunn 412L, Acoustic 371, Acoustic 301, Alembic F2B, as well as products from the Sound City, Peavey, HiWatt and custom-made devices by Pete Cornish.
