    I just had to start a thread on this guy, Briane Poole is one of the main reasons I picked up bass and seeing him live in october with of montreal just made me fall even more in love with it,

    does anyone know how he gets his tone? at the concert he was playing a rick with a pick, but his sound is heavy yet bright, any other way to get it?

    anyways this guys has amazing groove beyond what I could ever aspire to, any other fans?
  2. hey man! i just got hip to this band too. what a great dirty thick bass tone huh? i think the best way to achieve it is with flatwounds, a pick, a short-scale bass, a vintage amp like SVT. i gotta improve my pick playing!
