Jonathan "HIV" Davis
Mics:
  • Shure mics (contact Zack Adcock for more info on this)
Bagpipes:
  • All I know is that he has 2 sets of Bagpipes. One (Black/Red) his grandmother gave him when he was younger, used for "Shoots and Ladders" because they sound better outside and sound better for "traditional" songs, also, "HIV" is written on them.

    He has another set that he has recently bought which he used for "Low Rider".
