    I'm trying to find out what effect Frank Bello used in the song "Got The Time" on Anthrax's Persistance Of Time album. Its in the bass solo. Anybody know?

    Man, I haven't heard that song in over 10 years :rolleyes:
    I'll have to check it out when I get home tonight. Sorry I can't be of help right now.

    Thanks man. My band is needing another cover and this is a song that would fit with our sound pretty good. I can play it without the effect, I just wanted to make it sound close.

    OK, its been awhile. Anybody have an idea what he used? I really would like to make the solo sound as close to Frank's sound.

    A very light amount of chorus maybe? There's not a heavy amount of any effect as far as I can tell. He does have a killer tone though.

    I always thought it was chorus, too. And lots of treble.

    I know you want to sound like the Anthrax version, just make sure that if you tell the audience it's a cover... you say it's a Joe Jackson cover, because that's who originally did it.

    Matt, most people I know have no clue who Joe Jackson is. :meh: Yea they would recognize his music maybe but not him.

    On telling people its a cover, I just tell people its a "cover of a cover" :p

    :D Yeah, I've done covers of covers myself :D

    Sorry, it's just a Pet Peeve of mine. Whenever my old cover band would do Voodoo Chile, the singer would announce to the audience, "There was a little Stevie Ray Vaughn for ya" or something of that nature. Or "That Aerosmith Song, 'Come Together' or 'I'm Down'"
