I've always strived for that gut sound. I hate nothing more than an electricky sound for playing jazz. However I'm now in a situation where for one specific song in a show I'm doing, I'd like to get an electric bass funk kind of sound. I'm doing a funk (think Maynard Ferguson) arrangement of a Negro Spiritual with a horn section and a gospel choir and I'm playing some groovy funk lines on upright but of course especially on my bass, it doesn't sound exactly like you'd expect it to. Before you ask, no I don't want to learn electric nor get another person in for this. My sound fits with everything else happening at this show but it's just this one thing. I was thinking there must be some cheap module I can insert into my signal chain temporarily just to get more of a nasal, metallic, electric edge to the sound. I have thought of using a crappy piezo of some sort but it needs to be something I can just install and remove easily. I see all these modules out there for warming up sound which are usually for making an electric, nasal sound warmer. But what about the other way? I know I won't be able to get exactly the kind of sound this kind of arrangement really calls for but just getting part of the way there might be interesting.
