A Perfect Circle - Rose

  1. This song has the fattest, most impressive bass fuzz I have ever heard. I might be mistaken and it could be a synth, but the strong industrial sound suggests to my ears it is actually bass.

    Billy is listed as playing bass on this song, but theres no list of gear or anything. Does anyone have any idea how to get close to this tone?

    What a great album, really, I can't get enough of that album. I hope you find what you're looking for. I'm not knowledgeable at all about what billy used on the record but I have strong belief that was a bass. If you listen to each time he plays that decaying harmonic it is not very consistent so my only conclusion is it was played on a stringed instrument.

    Come to think of it the entire cycle of the phrase isn't always very consistent but still amazing.
