  1. I know he does alot of slap on a detuned 5-string soundgear custom, but I've detuned my 5 and tried slapping it and it doesn't sound anything like it.

    Brand new strings, a speaker cab with a tweeter, and don't forget the FiElDy signature shoes of course. You can't get that tone with any old shoes, just ask FiElDy.

    Amps don't have tweeters, speaker enclosures do.

    EQ is, along with the sneakers, the key to success - if your bass is an active 3-band, turn your mids all the way down, and the highs all the way up. Do the same thing on your amplifier's EQ. This will emphasize the "click" character his attack has, and the boom of his tone.

    I hear he actually gets his tone by using and old sock and a piece of cheese.

    Fieldy is really kinda fat.

    1 amp with 2x18" for the lows, no mids
    1 amp with 8x8" for the higs, no mids
