Brent Hinds is a guitarist and singer for the Atlanta, Georgia metal band Mastodon, in which he shares guitar duties with Bill Kelliher and vocal duties with Troy Sanders.

Brent is also lead guitarist/singer for the Surfabilly Band Fiend Without A Face.

Let's look at some of the gear and equipment that has been seen in Mastodon's Brent Hind's Guitar Rig. Brent's guitar rig is pretty minimal. He doesn't use too many effects, which then flow to a Marshall head.
