D'Angelo has also been in various bands in the past, either as a studio session player or full member. Some of these include IllWill and Mercyful Fate as well as Dismember, Sinergy, Witchery. More recently he has been a part of The Night Flight Orchestra, with Björn Strid of Soilwork. He plays with Dunlop picks and primarily used Rickenbacker basses in his early career, before switching to playing and endorsing IbanezIceman basses in 2005. Ibanez now produces the Sharlee D'Angelo signature bass, called the SDB2, which is tuned to D'Angelo's preferred C standard (Low to High - C,F,Bb,Eb).
