how do I get a gritty, crisp tone
I'm looking for a gritty tone similar to Rick Lopez of the Casualties, or similar to Matt Freeman.
A good example can be heard here: http://youtu.be/rScfrBoLVNg
So far I've been plugging my Geddy directly into my recorder and it sounds plain and dull.
Broke Bassist #22, Fender Jazz Bass #526.. sup?
