Seconded. Can we narrow it down just a hair?
Any time, any place.
Ewww...I like it.
Id say im affected by 90's rock
All for a 90 cover band.
You forgot the best one:
WHAT??!! NO SONIC YOUTH??!!
I stand by my earlier answer, but I'd think that finding a good amp emulator or overdrive with some chorus would be your most immediate needs. Also get a fretless. And some delay. And an envelope filter. You could probably use a fuzz. Or two.
Maybe try a multi. B3 is popular now.
no effects in the 90s
gibson vintage bass, and overdriven tube head
For bass in the 90's, I would say no effects. Compression is always used in recording - optional for live.
for the bands you mentioned, all you need is a drive(like an overdriven svt amp, or a vt bass pedal for the economic bass player) a fuzz pedal(like a big muff or swollen pickle) and a filter for some chili peppers stuff(like the mxr bass filter)
and you're good to go!
Cop this tone...
No effects...just a P-bass and an 810 with an SVT head.
Most of the bassists you listed have some degree of a "driven" tube amp sound, that'd be a good place to start if you don't already have it dialed in. After that most ran fairly dry sounds. Nirvana might require a Rat or clone, Pearl Jam might need an octave pedal if you do the intro to Jeremy, and Flea will almost certainly require a filter at a minimum -- possibly more depending on what period material you cover.
B3K with a heavy dose of drive gives a great RATM tone (on my gear at least)
