Tosin Abasi

Animals as Leaders

BIOGRAPHY

Tosin Abasi’s unique metal sound comes from his precisionist style tempered with a flexible approach to music. Inspired by Thom Yorke, Mike Enzinger Steve Vai and more, the mostly-self-taught Abasi founded the progressive metal band Animals as Leaders after spending a year studying music at the Atlanta Institute of Music. Following years of experimentation with different instruments and playing styles, Tosin progressed to using extended-range 8-string guitars, including his own Ibanez TAM100 signature model. As he effortlessly switches techniques while playing, Tosin displays the accuracy of a machine yet the creativity of an artist. He prefers to use Line 6 Relay G70 and Relay G55 wireless systems and the Stagescape M20D mixer to enhance his seemingly wild yet extremely controlled approach to metal music.

The G70 is the perfect solution for having a great sounding, reliable wireless.
