I just hear that as an overdriven tube sound with a lot of mids pushed, using a P-bass. It's a good, grindy sound that cuts through nice. If it is an SVT rig he's using, it's awfully hard to make any of them sound bad.
from another thread:
The only basses he used during the Achtung Baby album were a 73 precision,72 precision and a Les Paul Recording bass with SVT amps.During that tour (Zoo TV)he used the 73 Precision and a 70's jazz delux.Amp wise he had 2x Alemic F28 pre amps and 1 SVT 11-p. |
During war he did use jazz basses and SVT's but i can only get and give accurate info from 91 onwards.
