    I was wondering if anyone knows how I can achieve gene simmons bass sound? Also his bass sounds distorted. Any pointers or input would be appreciated. Thanks.
  2. just set any amp to volume zero and you'll nail it. :bag:
  3. I've never really listened to Kiss, but of all the pics I've seen, I guess a good place to start would be a PJ pickup combo played with a pick.

    EMG's, Ampeg, and a pick and you're basically there.
  5. A Gibson Grabber/Ripper bass doesn't hurt either.
