    Yes- a Justin Chancellor/Tool question.

    I am assuming the distortion on the bass at the beginning of "H." is his Lovetone Brown Source?

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Nope, it's a Proco Rat. :)

    Naw- I think if not the Brown Source, then that leaves the SansAmp BDDI (unlikely) or the Colorsound Tonebender Fuzz (which was the other likely candidate).

    But, not meaning to dismiss what you are saying off hand, but where did you get this information?

    The only distortion pedal he used back in the AEnima days was a Rat according to everything i've read.

    Tbirdbassist could chime in and back me up.

    I just located a killer interview with Chancellor in all things...a word doc format! I don't know if I can post the entire thing legally so I won't, but it confirms his recording using the following:

    "a ProCo Rat distortion pedal, SansAmp Bass Driver DI, DigiTech Bass Whammy, and Boss EQ, Chorus, Flanger and Delay pedals. He uses Monster Cable for all connections."

    [taken from: “Handy Man: How Justin Chancellor Frames Tool’s Metal Madness,” May 2001 Bass Player By Scott Shiraki & E.E. Bradman]

    I just don't hear the ProCo driving that kind of tone, so I'm wondering if he combined it with the SanAmp.

    Dude can you send me that article?!?! :hyper:


    To my understanding, he didn't use a BDDI back in the AEnima days, so that's why I was saying it's just a Rat.

    The only sansamp he has seems to be the GT-2 (Am I right??

    Now keep in mind, I don't doubt the solidity of that article, however, he may've been using quite a bit more than he (or his tech/roadie) would admit.

    However, it is interesting. I remember when that article was first published, good read again.

    Thanks.
