    hahah i suppose.....
     
  7. yes, but his tone doesn't really do it for me anymore. I wish he would go back to rats and marshalls... Jared's sound on the other hand is pretty awesome. It can get buried in the live mix, but it's so good on record!

    Buzz's current live sound is awesome!

    I saw them a few months ago and he was using Marshalls, Gibsons and a Travis Bean guitar i think.
    any way, it was awesome.

    I use the odb 3 on guitar aswell. Sounds great into a tube amp. You can get a nice marshall drive when going into a solid state amp aswell. I like it alot better than the ds 1

    Great band, but this current incarnation does nothing for me. When they move on, and Big Business are out, I look forward to them returning to form.

    i'm with him on the ODB3. i still haven't found a bass specific "overdrive" pedal that can get as nasty and retain hi clarity quite like it. it can sound harsh, but i dig harsh, especially when used to cut thru a band setting clogged with guitars & synths. my only complaint is i'd rather it not be another boss pedal. it'd be nice to find something a little more vintage or obscure with a similar mid-scooped high gain, punchy tone.
