    Anyone know? Strings, bass, eq, effects? Anything? I have been wondering forever, and just htis morning I took the time to figure out how to cut bits of song out of mp3s.

    More, to give you a better example, this is a pre-mixed version of one of thier songs.
     
  3. sounds liek he's tuned an E octave lower!

    :confused: :eek:
     
  4. Sounds like he's playing either very out of tune w/ a glass slide....or he is fieldy;)

    well, most I can get out of it is that he has all the lows cut and the highs and mids boosted heavily with the eq. I've actually gotten a very similar tone to that messing aorund with my spector- cuts the lows, boost the treble, use only the bridge pup (cut the neck pup out), downtune a step or so, throw on some stainless roundwounds, and pump in a little muscle from an overdrive pedal- mine's a Boss powerdriver. A little bit of distortion woudl get you close too, but you wouldn't want a lot.:bassist:

    Not that I would ever want my tone to sound like that but I think it sounds pretty cool for the song in the first clip. It seems fitting to the riff at least IMO. Definitely sounds better than Fieldy. :)
