Ben Chisholm of Chelsea Wolfe tone on Hiss Spun?

    I really love the fuzzed out bass tone on the track Spun by Chelsea Wolfe and was curious if anyone had any thoughts on what might get me somewhere close amp/pedal-wise. I'm pretty sure he plays through a Dwarfcraft Surrender Dorothy or She Fuzz live.

    In the video for 16 Psyche he's playing through an Ampeg of some sort it looks like.

    I've seen several interviews that talk about gear for the guitars, but not much in the way of the bass.

    Thanks so much!
  2. I was wondering the same thing, but listening closely, it sounds like it's a split signal, or maybe overdubbed. I heard the fussed out tone, but there was a clean tone underneath it to deliver the low end. I was watching this performance. I can't tell what he's playing through.

    Is that really all he uses? It sounds so different. I've used all of those pedals but man, he's a wizard. lol

    You can see him using a mxr bass distortion instead of the acapulco gold in the live video for KEXP.
    He is stacking everything with the exception of the reverb pedals on top of each other.
    And he plays a svt-vr which also does a lot for his sound.
    Then there are these synth sounds which he lays on top of his bass from time to time. It is not as much magic as you might think.
