    First of all, does anyone believe that the intro to this final track on Master Of Puppets is all bass?! If so, what effects are Cliff Burton using besides volume swells? I'm still not convinced that this is a bass guitar but rather a synth. I've transcribed it as double stops but can't even come close to achieving this sound with my multi-effects unit.:confused:

    i read a long time ago cliff used at least a rotating speaker setup. plus metallica really went crazy with multitracking on that album so there's most likely multiple tracks of cliff along with other stuff.
