    Hey Everyone

    I love the tone of the bass being used in these two songs, so was wondering if anyone knows how to achieve getting this tone.

    I know the bassist uses an Ashdown ABM900 EVOII and i have a Ashdown ABM500 EVOIII.

    So any help would be much appreciated!

    I would bet a few dollars that the Ashdown cab is just there for looks. If they aren't lip-syncing, then I think the bass is going direct into the PA and the in-ear monitor system.

    No mic in front of his amp, so you are hearing a DI line.

    I'm hearing a bit of grit, so a Sansamp or a Fulltone BassDrive should get you real close to what I'm hearing.

    Can we assume you are using a MM bass?

    Agreed sounds like a strait DI sound to me too!

    That's the tone of a Music Man bass ! You have good taste in bass tone. I've always liked how they sound.
