    Hey, I am just wondering on Around the World - Red Hot Chili Peppers Could anyone tell me how I can get a similar tone to Flea when he plays it Live?, I have tried many different things, Just can't seem to get a similar sound, Maybe its the basses he uses, or a certain way he plays it, Any contributions would be great, Thanks

    I'm almost positive he uses a Boss Bass Overdrive. I know he uses one on 'Live at Slane Castle'. There's a bunch of info on the pedal here, if you haven't already, give the distortion megathread a look.
