    this is the best bass sound i have heard in the last few years. I cannot believe fender jazz bass can do that or he recorded with warwick, but i played warwick and this is not warwick sound. is it eden gear?

    he plays warwicks mostly, but sometimes he uses a fender j bass (maybe a vintage one, i dunno) through eden cabinets & amps; thats what he uses live, im sure. but maybe he used another amp/cab in the studio.

    Keep in mind that it's a studio recording, with lots of other gear and tweaking involved. You can't get that sound by just plugging your bass into an amp - in most cases.

    He used his '65 Fender Jazz on that song. Also, he played the whole line on his E, which gave him a rounder, mellower tone.

  6. You can't always trust websites like guitar geek. They don't even mention his red Jazz. When I saw them a couple months ago he also pulled out a EUB for the last song of the set (the last song on the Morningview cd too).

    if this helps i think he uses some rack compressors too, so figure out how much stuff he could have used in the song...

    Yeah, I saw them here in June, and they played an amazing set! Between the Warwicks, the Jazz, and the EUB, Dirk has a pretty good arsenal.

    hehe... my drummer has access to two backstage passes for the upcoming incubus show in what i believe to be west palm. he's taking some girl, but it wouldn't matter anyway: if he weren't taking her, he'd be taking our guitar player. if only he had four passes...:( :D
  10. According to his interview in Bass Player he uses:

    1965 Fender Jazz Bass with Ernie Ball Nickel Slinkies .45 - .100. And yes for the main groove he does use the low E for a rounder sound.

    To record, if you understand this:

    "we miked one of my Eden rig's 410XLT cabinets, and I also used a Washburn/Randall isolation box, which is just an enclosed 10" speaker. We mixed these lines with a DI signal from a Demeter direct box into the Neve desk - you've gotta gow with Neve for great bass tone"

    So thats what the man says, long live Dirk.

    Incubus in West Palm? Yeah right... I'll believe it when I see it. The closest I think they've come down here is Orlando or Ft. Myers/Naples. Freakin' joke to drive that far...
