1985 Metallica bootleg: I have found the best bass tone for metal.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. Metallica is overrated. Cliff may be even a little overrated. But seriously. I have listened to a lot of metal. The BASS TONE on this recording is insane. Like, literally the best i've ever heard IMO.
I would not call that the best tone I have ever heard but I really liked it, had that guttural punch and growl. Very appropriate and fits well in the overall sound. Anyone know what bass he was on for this recording?

If this is the same "day on the green" show where cliff plays the star spangled banner in his bass solo.....I'm fairly sure he was playing a ric. There is a fair amount of video footage out there somewhere of this show.
100% fingerstyle too!
