    How I can get this bass sound?

    Papa roach- Hollywood whore

    And sounds like:

    BVB- The legacy
    Metallica- Creeping death
    Pierce the veil- A king for a day.

    Because the bass sounds in that songs like some type of distortion or somenthing likte that. I say like a bass sound but with that metalic treble IDK just hear the song.


    Thunderbird pro V bass
    Stagg XB300 bass (soon heavily modified)
    Ampeg PF-500
    Fender 4 x 10 cab.

    My 2 basses sounds like the same (the birdy sounds a bit better) and that is spected all the basses need to sound nearly the same because they are basses. I played 4 basses in my life and sounds very close one to other, you know very acoustic and clean and a little trebly on the bridge pickup. what I need then to sound like that basses? better pickups? pedals?

    When I play Papa I use a combination of my Tone Hammer,B3K and VT Bass I really think you could get away with just the VT bass if you had to.

  4. Sorry for the mild highjack, but could you share your settings on the VT and B3K? I happen to be rocking those 2 pedals and always looking for new ways to make them work well together. I suppose this does correlate to the thread topic!:)
