Greetings, all! I am Marcus, and I am a bassist in need of some help. Now, I do not know where would be best to place a thread with as broad of a topic as this, but I placed it in the most obvious sub-board: Bass Guitar. I would like to apologize to the administrators ahead of time if this thread seems out of place, but I am a newcomer to the TalkBass forums! I would gladly appreciate a warm welcome, and I can help some of my fellow bassists in their future endeavors.
Alright, let's get down to business!
I have been playing for three years now, and my rig consists of an Ibanez IBZ15 B 15 watt bass amp, an Ibanez GSR200, a Rogue LX205B (both passive pickups, DR Strings), and a Digitech RP50 Modeling Guitar Processor (I know, guitar pedals with basses usually don't mix, but it's all I can get my hands on at this point).
I believe that my tone at this point deserves a bit of an upgrade. I have always been aiming for raspy, vicious sort of tone to go with my bass. I have three videos below to demonstrate the type of tone I am aiming for. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0E-7Mqkx4hY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSVl2qlSqFU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bx0if_lL__w
Any help on achieving this "dream tone" would be well appreciated! I know that this will probably require a new amp or pedal, but we'll work on that another day.
