    At the moment I use a behringer bass chorus pedal and a big muff pedal. I am looking for a pedal that will enhance my overall tone in the parts where I don't currently use either of these two pedals. I am looking for a nice clean, warm bass sound similar to that of bloc party and biffy clyro.

    Any advice really appreciated.
  2. I don't recall anything special on biffy of bloc party in the clean parts. Biffy use Jazz basses cant remember what bloc party have. Probably just a good bass and amp and a good technique.

    Something like a sansamp bass driver will give youa fat tube amp sound, try a search.

    Gordon Moakes from Bloc Party appears to use a Fender P through Ashdown amps.


  5. I think the bassist from Biffy uses SWR stuff amp wise, i'm pretty sure you could get the tones out of a Sansamp BDDI stomp box.

    Does anyone have any experience of the Behringer BDI21 V-TONE BASS (as a cheaper alternative to the Sanasamp BDDI)?
