    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.

    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.
