    one of the best bass tone ever IMHO: aggresssive and warm,
    by the way in your opinions wich are the distinctive elements??

    bridge pickup ++?
    bass eq ++?
    humbuker pikups?
    the bass?

    or what else?

    peace,
    m.

    p.s. I know, it is not only a bass question but...
    p.s.s. is forbidden to say how hot is daniela mercury ;)

    Are those flats on the bass? I am terrible at telling the difference on a fretless.

    :confused: If you look at the video, the bass player is using a fretted Alembic Orion 6 with a maple top...

    I like it- nice bridge PUP burp but with tons of bottom, too. A pet peeve of mine is a lot of bridge pickup that isn't blanced by a decent amunt of lows.

    Great mix, I agree!
