    I know about the Harmonic Percolator, but can it handle bass frequencies? Are there any other pedals that can get that Shellac sound?

  3. Since nobody knows what exactly is in those big silver amps they use one can never be sure. I've found that to get close to the Shellac Bass sound I need to use lots and lots of treble and cut the bass a bit. Also, a generous bit of distortion is necessary( I use a Marshall Guv'nor II).
    I have a feeling that a large part of that sound also comes from the TB-2000 alminium neck through bass Bobby uses.
