    Hey everyone
    Is there any certain technique you can use to sound similar to Sublime? Or do you have suggestions on what equipment or setup to use?

    I've seen sublime many times in the early 90's down here in southern california. I can tell you this much, Eric Wilson used to switch off between an electric bass and a double bass in between sets. hope this helps
  3. Im pretty sure he played a G&L L2000

    he also rolled off all frequencies above 2 khz or so for every single recording he did.

    He played through an 8X10 too- can't hurt to have lot's of speaker pushin air- he's got classic dub tone!
  6. Classic dub sound. do a search on "dub sound". I seen a post about how to achive it on here not too long ago. (days) See if that helps.

    i would just play it how i play it...you should develop your own sound, not copy someone elses. how do you think the guy from sublime got his sound in the first place?

    Roll off the treble and play close to the neck.
