    I have an electro harmonix "nano" muff and I need help matching the tone in anesthesia pulling teeth as best as possible with it.
  2. Ric - Distortion - Wah - Guitar amp - Go. Idk if that's right at all, but I'm trying.

    Not quite what I meant, I kinda knew that.
  4. Ohhh, I see what you mean. Well then I'm absolutely no help at all, apologize for wasting your time, and here's a thousand Canada points if you ever feel like vacationing up here.

    Canada points are worth more than american points now. :(

    I'd say your best bet would be in the effects forum, but whats your bass and amp set up?

    (this thread should probably be in the effects forum)

    If you're trying to sound like Clifford Lee "Messiah of the metal bass" Burton, you either gonna go trying a lot of effect pedals...
    or just exactly copy the gear Cliff used.
    I've been there... :rolleyes:
    I still haven't find the right distortion or fuzz pedal.

    Try asking the specialists in the effect forum.

    Best of luck.

    Cliff Burton was the greatest of them all. :bassist:

    I've gotten Cliff tone through Mesa Boogie 50 Cal. that was being pushed really hard. I also played with a Rick strung with Rotosounds at the time.
  9. i've had comments that my tone was very similar to his anesthesia tone when i covered that song few years ago.
    all i used was a BOSS ODB-3 bass overdrive.
    flat settings on my active jazz bass by ESP with both pups blended.
    OD knob up only a quarter from dry.
    flat EQ on pedal.

    thats all i remember

    Ashdown James LoMenzo HyperDrive? Very versatile. I'll check in when I recieve mine, and give you an update on how I made it match the one of Cliff.

    I am interested in the LoMenze HyperDrive myself.
    The Ibanez Phat Hed doesn't do it for me.
    Looking forward to hear your experiences with the HyperDrive.

    The fuzz/distortion isn't nearly as important as people make it out to be. His wah pedal, IIRC and old Morley Power Wah, was responsible for a lot of his sound as was his technique, particularly his open-palmed slapping of his bass and how he scraped the strings with his fingernails when he played chords.
  14. I don't know, currently at our exchange rate a thousand Canada points is about 980 America points, but correct, about 457 Euro points.

    IMO, you're starting off with the wrong Muff. :p

    Also, unless the distortion pedal has a natural "half-open wah" tone, no distortion or fuzz pedal can do it alone.

    At minimum, you'll NEED to buy a wah pedal, or you'll never get close.

    Having owned and used the old chrome Morley wah pedals (which Cliff Burton used), the closest-sounding one in production today would be the Morley Power Wah, IMO. So... get one. :bassist:

    +1 good advice

    In my first days of playing bass, I aspired to be like Cliff.
    But I couldn't and still can't play with a wah pedaL

    To compensate I started fretless bass, so I can bring more expression in my (metal) playing.
    I don't want to be like Cliff anymore. (Although I still think he was and is the best.)
    I am at a stage where I found my own style.
  19. Yeah but there's a 20% Points tax over there, soo...
