    No effects, just boost your mids. ;)

    It sounds like a clean Ric into an SVT to me.

    Use a pick as well to get that clanky sound

    "I think that when you take out a lot of the mid tones, it sounds better."

    "THE SOUND :

    B.P : Did you use any effects on the new album? (The Cure NDR)
    S. G : Yeah, but I didn’t really get involved with the sound in the studio.
    …It goes heavy on the bottom, I take out the middle and it's heavy on the top. On a graphic EQ the shape is like a chevron…..I think that when you take out a lot of the mid tones, it sounds better.
    ….live, I use what I always have : Boss MT-2 Distortion, DD-3 Digital Delay, BF-2 Flanger, CE-5 Chorus Ensemble and NS-2 Noise Suppressor. ….There are more improved things around, but I know how to use these.
    I must admit I‘ve never studied different speakers or things like that. I just tend to plug into whatever is there and mess around until I get something that I like….it does go down to that original punk rock thing of not really caring what you play through"

    here it goes.. an excerpt of an interview i found over the net

    "N.B : Mike HEDGES, producteur de Faith et Seventeen Seconds notamment
    mentionne dans une interview récente que Gallup branchait sa basse dans un SVT présent dans le studio durant l’enregistrement de Seventeen Seconds "

    So.. it's an SVT.. ok ok..

    To clarify what I meant to say: it sounds like a ric on that song, and the nature of the ric tone is a "middy" sound. If using a T-bird, I'd add some mids on the amp.
