    She plays straight eight notes with a pick on a bass with a P-pickup and fairly fresh string. I don't think any effects are involved - it's all in the pick.

    I'm pretty sure that's the setup she's always been using, though I'm not 100% anymore(I think there was a description of her gear in a BP issue as well).
