    Hey guys
    Over time I've been learning Cliff Burton's amazing bass solo 'Anesthesia', and I can play it really well (I'm not bragging, it's the truth! :) )

    But I can't get my setup to sound the way Cliff's did. The sound he got of it was great. Does anyone know what wah wah and distortion he used? and what his amp was set up like?

    I have a GFX-707 multi-effect unit (yes, I know it is for electric guitar, but they didn't have the bass version at the time and I was desperate! :) ), and I've mucked around with it a fair bit, but I still can't get it to sound the same. Can anyone help out??

    L8er,
    Steveo
