Meshell.. Zender.. that 'greasy' sound.

    I listen to Stuart Zender and Meshell Ndeogeocello a lot, and I do not understand how they get their sound; really smooth and flowing. Is it flatwound strings, or what they play, or the instrument, or some pre amp or simply their fingers? I can play well in my own right, but that smooth milkiness eludes me.

    Current setup is MM Stirling with roundwounds, Trace Elliot head and Eden 4x10XLT and Eden 1x15.

    I think they're miking their amps.

    It could be a lot of things. Since I'm not you, I don't know exactly what you hear in them that you don't hear in yourself. Could you point us to a specific song/sound clip with this sound? It's easier to make guesses once you heard it.
