hey i was just wondering if there are any specific pedals for slap bass?
compressors and EQs help for taking advantage in the slap sound. i like flanger
I've always liked slapping with my phase shifter on. Don't know why...
I don't think there's anything specific, but there's certainly some that help.
Compressors help tame the sometimes unkempt dynamics of slapping.
EQ's are used to provide the mid scoop and perhaps boost or cut the overall levels in order to match with fingerstyle volume.
A good envelope filter comes in handy.
i don't know if anyone has tried this, but this pedal is supposed to be for that ultimate slap toneamt
It probably scoops your tone a bunch. I wouldn't be opposed to try it out though!
Judging by the sample, that's exactly what it does... and IMO it scoops WAY too much! No definition in that tone at all.
I've always liked the sound of light autowah with slap, it sounds really good.
And a compressor, of course
The nice thing about slap is it gives you more high frequencies for your pedals to work with... Just about any effect is going to sound better (with the exception, perhaps, of distortion).
i like a wah pedal, or an autowah as dash just said...
