    Has anyone got any clips of a Superbass naturally clipping/distorting?

    Very True! However I was looking for a clip of just the bass tone?

    Listen to the intro of Ace Of Spades. That's Lemmy straight into his cranked Super Bass(es).

    I also have short clip on Youtube, playing the intro of one of the songs on our latest CD (Death Machine - song name is Slaughtered In Vain), where I'm plugged into 2 cranked Super Basses, with the booster on my bass cranked too. I can't post a direct link, cause where I am has youtube blocked, but if you search "Clammy" "Studio" "Slaughtered", you should find it.

    Hendrix Experience Monterey Pop.
    Soon there after Redding switched to Sunns.
    Alvin Lee live at Woodstock. 'course he's striking the strings through a good part of the tune.
    Hendrix Woodstock, Billy Cox.
    Band of Gypsys, Billy Cox.
    Any live Cream. Try "Crossroads". There you're hearing the Gibson EB3 too.
    My favorite, Jeff Beck "Beck Ola" album.
    Rotosounds on a Telebass or P through Majors. I know you said 100w SuperBass.

    In all of these you're hearing the 4x12 cabs too.

    Old Yes has a lot of Superbass blended with clean sounds, too. That's still Chris Squire's secret...SVT's for clean sounds, Superbass for dirt.
