Instruments[edit]

Hume plays a Takamine 12 steel string electric guitar and has many changes on stage with guitars; he can play either a 6 or a 12 steel string guitar either acoustic or electric. The brand of electric guitar he uses is Gretsch and Epiphone. In addition to the appearance change that came with their album, Truth of the World: Welcome to the Show, Hume's guitar choice also changed. He began playing a heavily modified Epiphone Dot Studio which he had personally painted a custom silver and installed a Tenori-on display panel into, which was often left unused in live performances due to the difficulty of operation. Recently he has been seen playing other instruments, such as ukulele, drums, piano and bass.
