    i was listening to some black sabbath and heard that unique bass sound. I had attempted to get that sound on my amp but couldnt get it. I was told that geezer uses a rat distortion pedal. Is this true?
    I thought it was a slight muted sound but not, if you know what i mean? well anyway, please help me because i need to get the sound of him.

    Or if it isnt the effect he didnt use please can you tell me what effect he does use?

    thanks

    getting warmer
    Geezer's had a bunch of tones even on the early records. Be more specific.
