    Hi my fellow lowenderettes and lowenders,

    I once more joined a project to do a full splitscreen cover. It's Queensryches Project Mindcrime classic "I Don't Believe In Love".

    I used my Sire M7 5 String bass in a D Drop C tuning, as our singer needed a full step down. As we are playing in a lower tuning I wanted to go for a more growling tone than the original song.

    My settings are:
    Both pickups in active Humbucker mode 50%:50%, 100% Volume, 95% Tone, 90% Treble, 100% Mids, 30% Midfrequenzy, 75% Bass.
    Slightly used D'Addario strings.

    I hope you enjoy it!

    May you stay well and creative!

    Sounds good. That's one fine looking bass, if I do say so myself! ;)

    I usually struggle to comment on things like this. It is very hard to hear a recorded cover without using the original as a measuring stick, and you picked one heck of a stick. I do like Queensryche's version better - my ears are trained to hear it as the "right" version.

    I can say that I think you fixed the things I didn't like about the original bass tone and kept all the things I loved about it, although the obnoxious midrange punch of the original has grown on me over time. Your band also did a great job on a song I won't let my band attempt. Very well done!
