    If you've heard of them, you know that they're just vocals, keys, bass, and drums. But their bass + key sounds are amazing!

    Does anyone know any ways to achieve the sound, or can help me find out what he uses? I want to cover one of DFA1979's songs with my band.

    I've tried to achieve the sound with a Digitech Bass Synth Wah pedal and I couldn't get too far with it. Infact, the pedal doesn't even work correctly anymore.

    So yeah, please help me out?

    Bass -> Crybaby (modified) -> Ibanez Stereo Chorus -> signal is split to:

    a. Acoustic 360 head with a 8x10" cab
    b. Peavey Coliseum 400.
