    Bassballs? With the dirt switch on it's quite vocal. Not exactly a thick sound though, unless you throw a few octaves at it (sounds great after a Bass Micro Synth).

    see my review on the noisebox from subdecay and check the samples on bassfuzz.com and the subdecay website. it is a very filtery/wah sound with lots of grumble and glitch.

    Sounds like a case for the great Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver

    At the end of the clip there is a comparison between the dry signal and the sound with the pedal, see if its the sound you want.

    Also a lot of mids help for growling.

    Posting, or listing an example of what you are after will go a long way.

  6. When I think of growling, I think of a fuzzy filter sound. Maybe a Prunes & Custard, or a Tube Zipper maybe?

    it can't be all done with a pedal, technique is also involved

    Growl is subjective. Do you have any examples of the sound your after?

    A Sansamp BDDI will get you close to this..Marco really uses a GT-2 I think but a Sansamp product.



    Sounds better on the Century Child or Once CD's.

    Growl is a real broad term subject to many opinions.

    Marco has a great sound. Saw them live a few times and he gets a great sound. Century Child is one of my favorite CD's. Too bad they sacked Tarja.

    That sound is also a perfect example of, "sounds great in the mix but lousy alone."

    Works dead on perfect for the CD but Lordy you turn the CD off. :eek:

    So true. But so many players think that what sounds great in the living room automatically sounds great in a band. Not usually the case. Where it fits in a mix is the most important.
