    what effect/amp do those bassist for those gospel groups use to get that shake-your-balls sound? I saw some huge group with about 50 singers and a 5 piece band on tv. the bass player was ok but his tone was amazing...since it was on TV they taped all brand names up. Was it a sonic exciter? Octave pedal? just a bass boost? Any one know what sound I am talking about? I have heard it countless times, but I never know what does it. He was playing a 5-string sound w/ P/J Pickups.
