    Not my kind of music at all, but your tone sounds good for what you do.
     
  3. That's a pretty kick ass tone! Nice and grungy, yet still Bassy. :bassist:

    Good stuff!

    OK:

    I recorded this with a crafted-in-japan Fender Jazz bass (75 re-issue stock pick-ups) with brand new stainless steel strings....into a sansamp pedal into a cheap Ashdown MAG 300 and out to a cheap Ashdown MAG 15 inch speaker.....into a SM-57 into a digi-002 protools set up......

    Jazzin' ...Bluesin' and Funkin'

    I found in the first song "ursy knows?" you remind me of Adam Clayton. In the rest, you have a completely different tone.

    Hehe, I have a similar setup to you, but I've never got a tone like that. I never tried though.

    I think I'll go for a little more warmth next time.......perhaps a real tube amp instead of the sansamp.........
     
  7. I like the tone..

    I go for a simillar tone with a Ric through my Mesa Boogie..



    P.S. - I think I might become a new fan too..

    Hi-fi into an old tube amp
    If it starts out with a magestic keyboard... I know I cant listen for long. I start feeling wholesome almost immediately, and that distrubs me.

    Bass tone is nice.

    I used a Sansamp into a MAG for a while. Was good.
     
  11. did you ever try that ursy song without a pick, could you have gotten more warmth that way?
     
  12. Keep using the pick man, that tone is great!:D
     
  13. I certainly wasn't complaining about the pick sound. I like it, I just wasn't sure I was hearing it right. I like a hard attack sometimes.
