Last I remember Buzz was using a couple of these: http://s94.photobucket.com/albums/l106/thewindowsmasher/amplifier%20worship/?action=view&current=SUNNBetaleadPL-20preamp1.jpg&newest=1

...into solidstate power amps powering one HiWatt 4x12 on each side of the stage as well as a 1x15 on each side of the stage as well.  He uses two Boss ODB-3 bass overdrive pedals which I think is mentioned in that video.  I've seen he and Adam Jones both play Mesa Boogies at the first Jelvins show which I think were backline rentals since they had just flown in for two nights.  In pictures/videos I've seen of them in Europe Buzz has used Marshalls and Oranges.  Like someone else said though, the gear's not that important.  Basically any decent humbucker guitar through a basic distortion pedal into a loud classic guitar amp is gonna get you in the ballpark.  The majority of the sound though is in the fingers.

Jared uses tons of pedals including a POG.  I'm guessing he mostly uses those for BB sets though.  Never seen him onstage for a Melvins show when Biz was not performing so I don't know.  Jared plays a J-bass, but most Melvins bassists have played P-basses.  Kevin played custom basses with G&L pickups.  The only pedal I remember seeing in his setup was a Line 6 DL-4.

Ever notice that around the time Buzz started using the Electrical Guitar Company guitars several guitarists followed suit? The ginger dude from Isis, Brent from Mastodon, the guitarist and bassist for Torche use them as well.

Yeah but Isis used those guitars BEFORE Buzz did. There's a video on line where he was talking about his new guitar and he mentioned that he got into those guitars off the back of Isis using them. He loved the thinner neck than on a regular guitar. He said that was the feature that really sold it to him and so had a specially built model set up like his old Les Paul. Also i've never actually seen Brent from Mastodon with one tho, it wouldnt surprise me if he did as he seems to chop and change his guitars fairly frequently. I'd love to have one too mind.  :P
duane denison is using one on the jesus lizard tour.

I saw Juan (ex-Torche) using one of those guitars before Buzz, too. It was at the 40 Watt in Athens, and I spoke with him afterward and my friend and I had mentioned it and he let us look at it and hold it. The thing is really lite and he gave us the card of the man who made them. Hopefully my friend still has it and I'll try and get a photo up here. I believe he was based out of FL.
