    Hi Adam

    I took a tapping course from you last year and am still working through it. I hope to go onto your other courses in the future as well. Meanwhile, I was listening to the song Truth from your Evidence album and am very impressed with the slap tone you are getting. I don't expect to replicate it as I have a different bass and have a different touch but was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing the effects you were using for that song.

    Don´t know if he used effects to record those lines but i´m really sure that most part of that amazing sound comes from his amazing Curbow Retro II 5

    hi gladowsky!

    thanks for posting. on the tune, 'truth' i used a prototype of what later became the curbow 'retro II' 5 string bass. i didn't use any effects on the bass when i tracked it. i still use it a lot today. there was only a touch of compression applied during mixing stages. that is easily one of my most-used basses when i record. i'm glad you dug it!

    Are you also using the Curbow Retro II 5 on the track "The good foot?" Man that tone is killer!
