How did he get that tone on this recording? Please help.
Can anyone please take a listen to the sound of the bass on this song and give me some idea of how to replicate it? Is it a pedal, a rack gear of some sort, an amp . . . . what? I need to have this sound!

Do you mean this version?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFtVmAa9d4U
It sounds fairly straight forward to me, mid range growl I would call it. Just a nice rig with the mid high and mid lows slightly more dialed up and the bass and highs slightly dialed down. It's a good sound that cuts through the mix, however he got the tone I think it's good. Perhaps it's a GK amp.
I'm not an expert on this sort of thing, so there may be plenty of better explanations.
Thanks. I think there is some modification done to get this tone, such as an effect, so I'm still hunting.
Just sounds like an overdriven tube amp to me. It's compressed and processed but if I had a single guess I'd say it's a picked Precision through an SVT.
yeah, definitely a P-bass played pretty hard with a pick. About 50% on the tone knob I'd say... and tube amp for sure.
I'm not a country fan, but this track is really cool. especially the bass work.
but to be honest, I'm not hearing anything that indicates the use of effects.
Thanks again. I don't use a pick but I do play pretty aggressive. Tried these settings on my mike lull p5 and its pretty close.
Yeah man - playing with a pick is something I never used to do. For some reason I thought it was just something that those guitarists-playing-bass people did. The truth is that there just certain sounds that you just can't get without a pick. Same goes for guys who primarily use picks - can't replicate a finger sound with a pick.
There's nothing quite like palm muting a line with a pick and a P-bass.
Pbass, rounds, and a heavy pick will get you there. Maybe roll off the tone a bit, but those are the ingredients. Sounds like a Detuned 4 string, rather than a 5. They tend to have more growl, IME.
There's some compression on there, too. That could just be some natural tube compression from an amp.
