Help me make me sound huge

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by fenderbassabuse, Feb 3, 2005.

  1. I curently want a more rounded sound that should be a better fit in the mix. I want almost the sound of a bass, as I currently am sounding like flea, but smaller. so I guess if a comp can fatten, what will make me sound huge?

    I've been thinking an aphex bass xiter, but is there anything else? I wound't mind getting the rack version of it or any others.

    Many thanks

    -big speaker/s

    -Aphex "Big Bottom"

    -BBE "Sonic Maximizer"

  3. Aphex Bass Exciter with Enhancer, £80 approx from ebay or Bass Boutique (John Gibson VERY HELPFUL )

    I tried this and it made my Ampeg rig sound huge in fact too full and big.

    I found it better than the BBE stuff and it goes front of amp , no tone loss and good bypass etc.

    Worth a look great pedal for smaller rigs needing extra thud etc
  4. How about the rack version of the aphex pedal? I want to get stuff off the floor and into a rack.

    Before you add a box, consider playing with a lighter touch and turning your amp up. The lighter you play, the deeper you'll sound. Try it...

    Also, pluck closer to the neck for increased bass response.
  8. get an ampeg 810...then you'll really sound huge!
  9. I would but I can't afford it and the people I live with would kill me!
