    Another vote for dirtier/more agressive tone here.
    It has got to be Alex Webster's tone on Torture, Spector bass with a Darkglass B3K:

    Definitely some nice tones posted, but to me this is still my absolute favorite. Roscoe FTW...



    Ahh, my heart aches for that tone! :crying:

    You surprise me - although, I guess he did go through some very strange-looking basses in the '70s!

    I think Precisions were his go-to bass from about '67 to '71; i.e., Sell Out through Who's Next. In particular, there was "Frankenstein," assembled from the parts of various smashed Precisions, which was used on a lot of those recordings. (The bass on Live at Leeds was definitely a P, it may even have been Frankenstein.)
