    Has anyone listened to this isolated Juan Alderete clip? What a great player and amazing tone. Anyone care to take a shot at the gear used for this recording? I'd love to cop some of these tones in my own playing. No tube amp here unfortunately...

    Here's the clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5rLFr3rB7M

    This is pretty cool, though I'll admit I was just little bit disappointed because I was hoping for one of his effects-laden sound barrages.

    Boss CS-2 through an Ampeg of some sort would be a safe bet.

    I've been a fan of Juan since his Racer X days, and he just keeps killing it!

    This guy is becoming my favorite bassist of all time. His pedals & effects side is brilliant! Thanks for putting this up
