Basses
- Wal basses - Chancellor’s main bass is a Wal 4-string. The bass’s woods and electronics help create the midrange cut and punch for which he is known. Justin also has three other four-string Wals: a less midrangy copy of his main bass (used on Wings for Marie parts one and two), a Mach III with a greenburst finish (used on "Right in Two"), and a lined fretless with a walnut top (used in the second verse of "Lateralus").

- Music Man Stingray bass - Used on "Forty Six & 2", "H." and "No Quarter".
