    Can anyone tell me what effects the bass player has on the song Ride The lightning. Is it overdrive?

    Thanks for help

    Sounds clean to me. I'm pretty sure he played overdriving his amp a bit, but no effects. AFAIK he owned only a Big Muff and Power Wah Boost which he seldom used.

    Yeah, throw it out and buy a DOD Preamp 250 or a Big Muff. The Zoom is actually pretty bad for just about everything.
