According to a quick search, nobody got him on this thread. We get him all the time in other threads.
I know he had a great sound- stood alone, really. Funeral For a Friend comes to mind... I am to understand he had custom tube amps built by the band's tech; Elton John had the same band for years. Anyway good of you to bring him in!
And great quote, by the way!
Brown eye girl by van morrison. I like the thumpy bass line which sounds like an old precision bass with flatwound strings I think.

THere are so many of you I want to quote in this thread!
Here's mine (in no particular order):
* Ronnie Lane/Faces - Especially on the live '73 live BBC thingy. Watch VH1 classic for it. Mmmmmmm!
* Chris Squire - "Lucky Seven" off of the FOOW LP. Actually a Tele bass modded with a jazz p/u. Who knew?!
* Geddy - SO much, but ESL is the easiest to mention
* Glenn Hughes - His tone on Deep Purples Come Taste The Band is just so so good. Aggro P bass at it's finest.
* John Wetton - Red/USA King Crimson stuff
* Paul Goddard/ARS - The bass solos in "Large Time" & "Champagne Jam" are huge.
* John Entwistle - "Eminence Front". "Nuff said.
* Like the Tool stuff too. D'Amour especially...
* Larry Graham - On the first Graham Central Station LP
* Dug Pinnick & Tom Petersson - though I'll never own an 8 string.
* Duck Dunn - Anywhere, anything, anytime
rhcp - throw away your television what a tone
I have several favs but I'm not in the mood to do a long list at the moment.
One of my all-time favorite recorded bass tones is Jason Newsted's (Metallica) Garage Days Re-revisited $5.98 EP...the tone is (IMO) death-defyingly beefy. Have a listen on tunes like Crash Course in Brain Surgery and Helpless.
flea on most songs from bssm
justin chancellor on lateralus.
...yeah, i like wals.
If I haven't said it before, Brian Cook on any TAAS stuff and also his "Evil" tone on Mouth of the Architect's "No One Wished To Settle Here".
And I forgot...
Dave Hope - Song For America
That Four Tops song, "Bernadette". When I first heard that song, I knew that it was the tone for me. It's just an amazing performance, one of Jamerson's best, no doubt.
+1. It almost sounds like Walter's tapping the strings to get that tone, or lightly slapping them.
Don't we all!
A few favs off the top o' my head:
Jimmy Johnson's Alembic with Allan Holdsworth.
Eberhard Weber's fretless on "Mother Stands for Comfort" and "Watching You Without Me" from Kate Bush's "Hounds Of Love."
Jeff Berlin on Bruford's "Feels Good to Me" and "One of a Kind."
Bunny Brunel's fretless on Kazumi Watanabe's "Kilowatt" and his solo albums.
Jaco on his eponymous album and Joni Mitchell's live "Shadows and Light."
Skuli Sverrisson's Tobias on Allan Holdsworth's "Hard Hat Area."
Yves Carbonne's ERB on "Holy Spirit" from "Carbonne, Di Piazza, Manring."
Gary Willis' fretless with Tribal Tech.
Stanley Clark's Alembic on "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" from "If This Bass Could Only Talk."
Percy Jones' fretless with Brand X.
Colin Moulding on XTC's "Oranges and Lemons" and few of their later albums.
Alain Caron's fretted and fretless F-Basses with UZEB and his solo albums.
You've got some good taste in bass tones, but this one is particularly good imo!
the best, if i could perfectly imitate their sounds i would be one happy camper
John Myung on Metropolis Pt 1
or one of our TBers, *sorry I don't remember your name!* on his song phi inverted
I love me my mids, and I love the tone they both get on these songs, great stuff, good songs too
Ooh I certainly didn't expect a John Myung choice from you!
Thanks . Stanley's tone on that song gives me chills every time. It's unique, expressive, and strangely "organic" sounding, as if an odd, almost human voice is singing each note and clearly enunciating every nuance.
