Iron Monkey bass tones

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Thunderscreech, Sep 23, 2008.


  1. A search has yielded NOTHING. Now, on this song here, the bass sounds downtuned, and then theres something else to it. Is it fuzz, or just Ampeggy growl? :confused:

    Either way, I'm trying to semi-cop this tone. or figure out what it is and then figure out what i need to semi-cop it.

    Awesome tune, but the bass just sounds like the standard stoner-doom formula: tube amps pushed as hard as they can go (and/or a fuzz on the fuzzed-out verses). The bass breaks are not just something simple like bass --> fuzz pedal --> clean amp though, it sounds to me like a mixture of cranked tube amp with possibly a bit of phaser?

    So much for cat-like reflexes.

    Tube amp cranked pretty good + reverb maybe?
     
  4. In lieu of a tube amp, would a SansAmp VT Bass be a good choice?
