    I am totally stumped on how Big Black accomplished this bass sound, DL Big Black - Dead Billy or Big Black - Cables to see what I'm talking about. It's like a fartish sound, it's sweet.

    It's not really fartish, heh. Where most bass notes would sound like "Dun", thier bass makes a distinct "dede" sounding note. I don't even know :( I'm a newbie musician, so I bet it's just the bass or the amp or the way the bass is played.
