Jamie Cook uses a vintage Selmer Futurama Bassist Major during the recording of the bands second album, “Favourite Worst Nightmare,” as seen in the “Teddy Picker” music video which shows footage of the band recording this song as well as the set up for the rest of the recording sessions. The amp can be seen at 00:22 seconds into the video, next to Jamie’s Hiwatt stack.

Around the time of Arctic Monkeys second album, the band acquired multiple vintage Selmer amplifiers. Alex started to play a Zodiac Twin 30, which became his main amp for each album following, and a Solid State 30, Jamie played through this Futurama series amp.

The amp can also be seen in the bands music video for their song “Four Out of Five” off of their 6th album titled “Tranquility Base Hotel And Casino.” The amp has not been seen used live by the band, as Jamie uses his Hiwatt Studio/Stage 2x12 and his BadCat during the bands second tour.
