Lindsay Manfredi of Cold brings us essential survival advice, for life in general as much as related to bass playing

I have a Fender Precision, Jaguar and Mustang,” says Cold bassist Lindsay Manfredi, “and I have an endorsement with Diamond Guitars, who are making custom Maverick and Hailfire II basses for me. They both have Seymour Duncan pickups and active preamps. For amps, I use a Darkglass Alpha Omega preamp and an Ashdown ABM 500, both of which I really love.”

Manfredi, bassist with the rock band Cold since 2014, recently published a self-help book called Unfuckwithable: A Guide To Inspired Badassery, which details her journey through serious personal tribulations. Its tone is optimistic, though, as befits a book that functions as a source of advice for anyone navigating their way through a tricky time in life.

“The intention was for the book to resonate with people, and of course I want people to enjoy reading it,” says Manfredi. “I sat down at my dad’s, homeless and not knowing what I was going to do with my life, and wrote it. It was very therapeutic.”
