    Sorry for the poor recording.
    My gear is:
    Esp Ltd B154-DX
    Boss CS-2
    Morley Power Wah Boost
    Big Muff Version 3
    Ampeg BA-112

    You can compare it to the original bass track of Cliff:

    What do you think? i would like to get help with reaching closer to Cliff Burton's tone :)

    Way too fuzzy when not soloing. Cut the fuzz out if you're not soloing, and rely on heavy attack and heavy drive. You need that clank and thud for the real Cliff Burton Puppets tone.
  4. Maybe because it wasnt bass?:D
