The article reports on the musical instruments that are used by Green Day artists. House mixer Kevin Lemoine likes the tube sound. He uses BSS compressors on horns, acoustic guitars, keys and background vocal. Vocalist Mike Dirnt uses his own signature bass from Fender, essentially a '53 P-Bass with a contoured body, modern P-Bass pickups and a BadAss II bridge. Billie Joe Armstrong uses various '55 and '56 Gibson Les Paul Juniors, as well as his trusty old lightblue Fernandes Strat.
