anybody try the EBS Valve Drive or the MXR bass blowtorch?
im kind of looking for that RATM sound but i know ill never get near tim's tone. so i was wondering which of the two would be more useful
I guess it depends on which songs in particular you're talking about. Audioslave's self titled album, for example, has some fuzzier sounds that the Blowtorch will get you closer to. But if you want the sounds from, say, Evil Empire by Rage Against the Machine, I'd expect the Valve Drive will be more up your alley.
Hahaha FTW indeed.
I like the drive I get from my SABDDI. I also like Rats, and believe it or not, Boss ODB3s.
i like the song "calm like a bomb" and "Bomb track"
ew. we can't be friends anymore. i'm sorry.
Then in my opinion the Valve Drive is for you. You'll also need a Dunlop 105Q Bass Wah for Calm Like a Bomb, I think. Oh, and for the record I think the distortion pedal used on the first Rage Against the Machine album was an original Marshall Guv'nor. I've got one, and to tell you the truth, you can look for one on ebay, but personally I'd still go with the Valve Drive.
thanks man you've just solved all my problems
Good luck, rock on!
I wish I knew what was going on in Bomb Track, that tone during the chorus is the "bomb"!
It helps that he used a MusicMan with a maple board, and it sounds like a pretty heavy hand. The midrange is CRANKED in those choruses.
Calm Like a Bomb is one of my favorite RATM tunes. Almost RAT-ish on that one, but he's splitting his signal, one clean, one really thrashy with the wah.
LOL I'm a fan of every pedal, for one thing or another. Please say you still love me.
love those songs TIMMY C is the man
sorry guys i got one more question. should i hook the EBS up before the dunlop or after it.
The wah should go after the distortion I would think.
Try it both ways, it's a matter of taste or maybe mood.
+1, I experimented for a while and found that I like the sound of distortion/fuzz better after wahs than before. Totally preference
Yeah, I'm considering putting two wahs on my board so, one before and one after my distortions. If I'm to believe what I've read, Tim Commerford runs his wahs after the distortion effects.
does anybody know why commerford runs two of the dunlop wahs? just curious
