Chris Batten - Enter Shikari

About Chris Batten

Member of the four-piece rock band Enter Shikari that has been nominated and won numerous Kerrang! Awards in various categories. The band's debut album is called Take to the Skies and they followed it with albums called Common Dreads and A Flash of Colour.

He previously played bass guitar in a band called Hybryd along with Enter Shikari bandmates Rou Reynolds and Rob Rolfe.

I started using the HT-DUAL when recording our third full length album. It proved itself to be a vital asset to my tone throughout the whole record. The Blackstar created a warm, yet hugely aggressive tone which sits perfectly in a live or studio situation. It somehow manages to maintain all the bass guitar's bottom end, which is, in my experience, where most distortion pedals fall down. I now use it relentlessly during our live shows.
