Hey there, I'm really curious how some bass players get a certain sound. Alot of "underground" funk/jambands have this sound... Off the top of my head i can think of: ULU (ulu.net) and the Poogie Bell Band (poogiebell.com). The best way i can describe this sound is really phat with a real smooth, yet defined attack. Now, like with any "sound" i know there are MANY factors that contribute. I know these guys have killer basses and amps, i'm sure that helps some.. but is there more i'm missing? Do you think they are using some kind of processor? A certain finger technique? Certain strings? Any ideas?
