    What kind of sound are you looking to get?

    Dave Ellefson doesn't really use anything. It's just his bass and his hands.

    Well what would be a good doom/stoner type of pedal.

    I like sabbath for sure, any suggestions?

    Yes I am a novice, but a craving to learn and the time to do so. your comments will be helpful. I dont have alot od duckett to be throwing around at different pedals.

    When I think doom/stoner in pedal form, I usually this either Mountainking Megalith if ultra high gain is what you want or Wren & Cuff Tall Font Russian for lower gain. Judging from your mention of Sabbath, I would go with the Tall Font Russian

    I don't believe the Geezer uses anything either. These days it's a P bass into cranked amps.

    I use an electro harmonix big bass muff for his distortion sounds (he got it from using a cranked guitar amp and busted speakers) and a p with flats. I also use some delay for the slower tunes, black sabbath, planet caravan... But he didn't use any.

    If you want a clean sound, compression is awesome.
  11. Compression and a nice gritty overdrive... my 2 cents

    Well, just remembered my Danelectro daddy-o oedal. Yes they are cheap, but good fuzzy overdrive.

    Good Score today. EH Germanium big buff and a big muff pi for $100 for both and they are like new. Ran them together through my Bag end d12d and peavey mark iii head and I think I'm frigging deaf!

    i'd say one thing that has recently become a key factor to all genres for me is compression. particullary for metal, it really cleans up notes nicely. I also have a Darkglass B7K distortion/preamp it is awesome for metal! I also like using a bit of chorus in some more quiet ambient passages of metal music.
