there are two recorded bass tones that I really like that I would like to replicate/duplicate to at least some extent.
First one is Chris Tense on Poison Idea's "Pick Your King" EP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pURwHm32C70
The second one is Klaus Flouride on the Dead Kennedys' "Plastic Surgery Disasters" LP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0nFtchU6Iw
As for this one, here's what I know about the gear:
Klaus, back in the Dead Kennedys days, used an Acoustic 150b and a Traynor Mono Block B, along with some 2x15 loaded with JBL's. I don't know during which years he used the amps exactly, but I have this info from the man himself. Oh, and at that time he played a 1966 Fender Jazz Bass with a Badass II bridge and SD QP pups and - I think you can hear 'em after "Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables", as his JB sounds REALLY badass!
Now, here's the gear I have at my disposal:
Fender Precision Bass, MIA, Badass II bridge, SD Quarter Pound pickup, Orange Drop 0.01uF cap
Traynor Mono Block B
Traynor YT-1500 (1970's, 2x15 loaded with Cervin-Vega drivers)
Ampeg SVT-810 (USA, 1994)
Can you tell me, with the gear at my disposal, what settings on the amps I should look into, or any effects? Can sound like that - beefy, ballsy, full (like Klaus) and somewhat distorted, yet coherent and kicking ass (like Chris Tense) can be replicated in a live setting, or is it studio magic?
Thanks in advance!
