I have too many to list, but I think this tone is just MONSTER!
Derf Scratch of Fear on "The Record". Raw, unwashed, and just leaned into. Good bass.
Beck - Lonesome Tears (Sea Change CD)
Flat strings heaven..
This entire CD has phenomenal sound, worth having!
The bit rate on youtube clip make it just pale in comparison to CD..
Whoa Man....thats bringing back memories....Fan-Freakin-Tastik...
Thank You for POSTING...
I agree on RATM. Operation Mindcrime never impressed me... maybe its time to listen to it again. It always sounded "loud" to me and I couldn't distinguish the guitars from the bass. Again, time to listen to it again. Thanks for the inspiration
Also Mic Todd's bass tone on From Fear Through the Eye's of Madness.
These both have awesome growls.
Some of my favorites have already been mentioned, so I'll just add one more name for now.
Billy Gould of Faith No More. His tone evolved and unlike many players he was fine with changing it significantly to fit songs, but I loved it on every album. If I had to pick, I'd say his tone on "Angel Dust" was my favorite.
Wham had a smokin' bassist for a while. The guy was a monster. I believe I recently read Wilbur Bascomb ( Jeff Beck- Wired ) recorded on the Hair soundtrack.
my favorite tones by far are queensryche, gov't mule when allen woody was still alive, and cry of love
paperback writer !!! macca.
....no more heroes ..and that era...stranglers!!
primary by the cure.
methods of dance/ swing.. mick karn.
your silent face ..et all...new order.
tube station at midnight...the jam.
coyote track?? ...jaco pastorius.
My all time favorite has to be Geddy Lee on Signals, specifically on Countdown. That sound is one of the reasons I play bass today.
Others have already said these: Geddy Lee on "Moving Pictures" and "Counterparts" (both Jazz bass?) really hit me since I was just taking up bass at the time, in particular "Stick It Out".
Billy Gould (Aria Pro II Integra and Zon Sonus) on just about any of his albums but especially, "Introduce Yourself" through "KFAD..."
Don't think anyone mentioned these yet:
John Taylor (Aria Pro II SB-1000) on "Rio" (album and of course the song).
And Scott Reeder's (Ibanez ATK series?) massive groove and tones on "And the Circus Left Town"
I go for :
the last Faith No More album (1997) "Album of the Year",
"Bellybutton" by Jellyfish in 1990
"Empire" by Queensrÿche in 1990
Geddy's live sound on the recordings: "Different Stages", "Live In Rio"
Tim Commerfords work with Audioslave
you see, massive growl
lateralus - justin chancellor
revolution 1993 - stuart zender
throes of rejection - rex brown
around the world - flea
anything done by kai eckhardt during the john mclaughlin trio!
Added to the "Morph the cat" CD and the bass tone thereon, I should add Steve Swallow and Anthony Jackson onto my favorites list, although in the case of AJ I have noticed that whilst his recorded tone is stellar at times, for example on "no es lo mismo" by alejandro sanz-a great sounding album on the whole-, and many others, I have found it less so on other occasions, when measured by the standards set by himself for himself.One example may be "Triangulo" by michel camilo, on which the bass seems not as open and well defined as it could be. I do like the overal sound of that cd however.
With steve swallow it seems more consistent.
Check out "Snowbound" by Donald Fagan. It has a warm warm Sadowsky tone. mmmmmmmmm
Ray Bennett from Flash, on the "In the Can."
Oh, and Chris Squire on "Harold Land" and "Beyond and Before", from Yes' first(?) album "Yes." Hearing those songs helped pull me away from the Mel Schacher, Lee Dorman etc. rut I was in at the time.
first post here!
i think one of the most awesome tones of a cd i own is Melvin Gibbs' on Rollins Band album COME IN AND BURN.
i love it so much
Oh man, forgot to mention Les Claypool with Oysterhead. Sick, sick tones all over that disc.
Pino's fretless tone is killer. And his fretted tone ain't bad, either...
I'm surprised no one's mentioned Michael Manring yet- there's another awesome fretless tone.
Exactly. I have too many to list, and the list changes from time to time depending on what I'm interested in hearing or playing.
Jeff Ament at the beginning of Pearl Jam's "Ten" is a favorite of mine as well. Another is the guy who played on Suzanne Vega's Solitude Standing album. Mike Visceglia or LaPatria or something.
