    I've been trying to get the sound similar to Flea on the Californication CD. Any suggestions? I've got a Stingray, and two different amps. 1 Eden WT300 w/ Eden 210 cab, and 1 GK 400RB w/GK 115 and Eden 210 cabinet. I also bought a FX25B Envelope Filter.

    My Stingray doesn't sound as in your face as I thought it would. Anyone else with this problem?:confused:

  3. Well, for starters he hasn't really recorded much with a Stingray opting instead for Alembic's, Wal's and other stuff I can't remember. Ironic because for all the "character" and colourization of a Stingray, he instead goes for very clean and smooth studio instruments. Moralis; don't matter what you play your voice shines through regardless.
  4. Maybe you're just not playing like him. I find sound more in technique than equipment sometimes.
