    Hi guys! i listened to a lot of covers from this guy, and i allways love the tone.

    So, how would you describe this tone, and how do you think i could achieve something similar?

    The only way to achieve such a tone would be to find that exact sticker, and place it in the exact same position on your bass.

    Or, you could get a Jazz bass and a Darkglass B3K.

    i cant find that sticker anywhere :(

    lol jk, why are you recommending that pedal in special? you get that sound from that specific pedal? or i could use another overdrive pedal? because im from argentina, there is not so much variety

    and tone wise, what do you think are the tonal characteristics? im pretty bad at knowing those kind of things, if i had to guess it has a bug cut on mids and some boost on bass, am i right? or completely wrong?

    He's got a youtube page, and his band has a website, why not just leave a comment or message and ask about what he's using, what his settings are, etc.

    Most bass players are happy to go on at length if you compliment their tone. ;)

    Whoa now, that's just a bit too logical.

    ok, thanks, ill do that!

    still if someone has some tips, they are welcome!
  10. I for one don't like that tone and I fail to see anything special about it - sorry, just my opinion.
    To me, the plucking definitely contributes a lot to the tone, hard plucking!!
    I have a custom made Jazz bass with a J pick-up in the neck position and a humbucker in the bridge, EQ flat, both pick-ups full, hard plucking and I get very close.
