MUD MUD MUD my name is mud

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by dukey donkey, May 16, 2019.


  1. Guess you never really know until you know. I'm completely enamored with the sound of my wooly, muddy Epiphone EB-3... and to think, I've been trying to coax that sound out of my single coil basses for years with hard driven preamps and overdrive/ distortion pedals... My notes have girth and power on up on every string... no complaints here... eventually I'm changing the bridge, but that's likely it...

    cool, I'm obsessed with beltbuckle PUs and was watching some vintage live Black Oak Arkansas with Dirty playing his long scale SG and it sounded so good with fingers or pick that I felt vindicated yet again. the bridge PU can be a secret weapon too lol

    I've always been curious to try one of these in a band context. I think they can sound glorious in the right mix.

    Do you have trouble with tribbles?

  10. also, I've noticed the bridge PU helps tame the peaks a little from the neck... I use it wide open...my L/E pedal helps bring the mid punch up to the front... I find it really loves effects also... driven preamp plus overdrive pedal plus distortion pedal = equivalent of the hulk with rabies

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    The Epiphone mudbuckers, while visually similar to the classic Gibson ones, have far, far less DCR, and therefore a much clearer sound. I suspect what you’re digging is the pickup position, and not the actual pickup itself. I totally get it!
