Steel strings, chorus, a bit of dist or something other?
I don’t know, but the bass on that song is incredible.
And it geniously simple yet smart.
The number of times i’ve found myself strumming along to that song... great song and bassline.
And I think you’re already right about its sound. New strings, chorus and treble like there’s no tomorrow lol
It sounds like a Bass VI played with a pick, which it probably is since they used it a lot. Chorus probably.
Chorus for sure.
It, along with sweet child o mine, were the two main songs I referenced while researching chorus pedals.
It sounds like action is intentionally set suuuuper low, and in the music vid it's a Bass VI
Live it's a standard bass tho.
I think you could get that tone with a standard bass, very low action, steel strings, Sansamp BDDI and a hint of chorus.
Live tone is nothing. I like the original tone for this song.
I'd say EQd to really bring out the zing
Sorry, it is the album tone I'm referring to - just went and had a listen on YouTube.
You could definitely also cop that tone with bass, steel or nickel rounds with low action, MXR M80 (with Color switch engaged). A large part if that tone to me sounds like a mid scoop between 700-900 hz which is roughly what both the BDDI and M80 can easily acheive.
Flanger (Boss BF-2)
Distortion (Simon currently uses the ODB-3, not sure what was used when it was recorded. When playing it I use a Tech 21 GT-2)
Hollowbody bass (not totally essential, but it’s what Simon probably used on Disintegration)
Flanger for sure.
What about Love cats
Check out this thread, especially post #7:
The cure bass sound.
You can also listen to the isolated bass track from Fascination Street here:
Checkout equipboard.com , is like a rig rundown of bassist; including Simon Gallup ,
I can’t believe that I never noticed that the bass line never changes for the entire song.
It’s a Stingray. Add a flanger.
Live he’s using a Boss ODB-3 on it but on the record I think it’s just new strings with a tiny bit of flange.
