Looking for this specific sound
Ive been trying lately to dial in a sound similar to the one as you can hear in the next clip (1:15 the bass starts). I really dont get that sound.
I would describe it as a deep, articulate sound. There aint much treble in it but its not too muddy as well, you clearly hear every note. Theres also a little growl in it.
How can I dial in this sound?
- Amp settings? Bass. Mid, treb? (I have an Svt cl and a Fender Super Bassman if that would mean anything) Or is this sound easier to achieve with a DI?
- Lets say I play my Fender J like the guy in the clip, what would be the ideal pickup volumes and tone setting? I know its a Marcus Miller J, but ive seen guys getting it from a regular Fender J as well.
- Any parametric EQ'ing that would be helpful? Are there any freq's I should favor or turn down?
- Compression eventually?
Thanks already for your responses.
Well, he's using a GK RB series head and a GK cab. That may have something to do with it. By the way I really liked the tone he got too!
Then again I don't know how he's running his bass to the FOH and/or the recording console.
Bass sound aside, am I crazy or should this guy be forbiden to sing until he improves so he is at least in tune? He isn't good enough for karaoke, let alone concert.
Guy has great tone, not a fan at all of the music, but his tone is spot on!
It's a combination of the amp & cabs, but its also most definitely going direct to the board and through a bit of processing as well.
Like the bass players tone also but the singer wouldn't make it past Simon Cowell on the first try. His mum and da must have money and bought him a gig. Terrible!
