  1. Just wondering does anybody know how Fieldy gets his kinda rattly bass sound?
    Any feedback would be appreciated, as my band is hoping to cover Freak on a Leash.


  2. Dowtune your B string to an A, chop your mids and raise your highs and lows so that it form the "smiley face" eq. Then just slap the hell out of it. Also I hear he puts the recording mic right next to his bass so it picks up the "click" more. For a bit more detail do a search on it using the search icon at the top of the screen. This kind of thread has popped up alot and some people have gone a bit more indept. But I encourage you not to counter any of the "anti-fieldy" people that you will see alot. It just leads to big flame wars that we would like to do without.:)
  3. completely off topic, but, I don't think I understand your signature jband. Wanna ecplain to us ignerunt?:D
  4. ahhh... it's a quote from a song by Clutch. I've been meaning to go back and add that info, but couldn't find the song title... then forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me. I'll figure it out and add.
