How does Frankie Bello get that tone?

  1. I don't know if there are many Anthrax fans out there, but I was wondering if anyone knew how Bello got his tone. Specificly the "Among the Liveing" and the "Persistence of Time" Albulms. I know he is a fingerstyle player, but he gets such an odd tone. I have tried and tried to duplicate it, but I have had no luck. If there are any 80s thrash fans out there who can help, I would apreciate it!
  2. It sounds like a Precision played with fingernails, roundwounds (duh), and a lot high-mid and treble boost.

    I believe that his basses ase P/J configuration and he does play with his fingers. But I have no idea of his rig and signal chain.

    Hope that helps a little...
