    Sorry for what is probably a really basic question, but I'm just starting to investigate pedals/effects and changing my tone, and I'm not really sure what effects I'm hearing being used in certain songs. The band I'm in is playing The Racounteours Now That You're Gone, and I'm trying to figure out how to get that bass sound. I can turn the gain up on my amp (Ampeg PF-800) and get a little crunchiness, but nothing like what is in the recording.

    Now That You're Gone

    My understanding is that Jack Lawrence uses an SVT. So maybe it is just tube overdrive that I'm hearing. But is there more to it (distortion/fuzz/other)? And how do I approach emulation of this sound (I know I probably can't duplicate it with my amp).

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    He was using an EHX Micro Synth quite a bit before. Likely more than one signal path to keep some clean along side the “fuzz”.

    Thanks. I found where he was using an original RAT pedal too. Not sure if that is part of tone here or not.

    Yeah, he’s used that and a Fulltone Bass Drive mosfet.

    I think you could get to this song’s bass tone with any of the above.
