    Hello,

    I'm trying to reproduce Jens Becker's bass sound from his Running Wild era (especially the albums Port Royale and Death or Glory). Example:

    Unfortunately I don't even recognize his bass guitar in this live video..

    Any insights?

    if anyone is interested - I think the bass is a Yamaha RBX-5.
    still searching for the tone though..

    Ah pirate metal!

    While I can't comment on any specifics, that's a phaser and delay in the intro.

    His "clean" tone is very much in the Steve Harris camp so I'd say you could get close to copping it with some mild overdrive and heavy compression for starters.
