    Hope there are metal bass players here who can :help: (help).

    I don't have a distortion pedal.I played the opening lines to this solo without it and it didn't sound the same.Are there tricks to playing without a waw-waw pedal so that it sounds like you are using it?

    BTW Cliff Burton rocks. :bassist:

    No technique will give you sounds like distortion or wah-wah.

    This song is the reason i bought my first two pedals. Bought a Boss ODB-3 overdrive/distortion pedal and a Dunlop GCB-100 crybaby wah. Sounds pretty good for the song.
     
  7. As for the wah-wah, you could pop the strings when the wah first comes in, and anyhhere else, bend them.

    Not the same effect.
     
  9. I use boss ODB-3 and a Morley classic wah, sounds pretty cool, not exactly like cliff but then again I didn't want to sound exactly like cliff so Im happy!

    Cliff himself uses an electroharmonix big muff (as seen above) and a Morley Power wah. With those two, a nice rickenbaker or Aria pro bass, Long wavy hair and a lightning fast fretting hand you can pretty much bring cliff back from the grave. You need an amp also of course and if you ever did bring cliff back from the grave heed probably kick your ass not only on the bass but in person as well (Im rambling now)

    This is safely on the topic of the effects forum now. Let's move it there...

    Big Muff and a Morley Wah did me well. You can get a BMP off eBay pretty cheap, and I even do a mod for added bass response. Ask MJ5150 for his opinion, he loves it!

    Other than that, I haven't been able to get very close with a Crybaby or a Boss Bass Overdrive, but some claim they can.

    What mod do you do to the muff?
     
  13. yea, i'd like to learn aobut that too. if i can even reverse it back to being the guitar pedal it is also, that'd be cool. The distortion is bassy, but not bassy enough

    Not that it matters much, but I think Cliff used the Russian one. I might be wrong though. ;)

    i use a DOD FX86B Death Metal distortion with Dunlop 105Q wah. the DOD is a bit too harsh, and has crazy background noise, but you can find them cheap.
