I've done some looking around online and for the life of me cannot find any info on any effects bassists like Nick Chaplin (Slowdive) or Debbie Googe (My Bloody Valentine) used or use. I recently joined a band and the stuff we're playing is very much in the experimental vein of Deerhoof and Mogwai, but we're mixing in a lot of swelling/throbbing/washing sounds you hear in early 90s shoegaze. Based on the recordings I am not hearing a tonne of effects on the bass and that may be the case because they needed something to anchor the super washy guitars and vocals. All I currently have is an overdrive and my guitarist is lending me an Ernie Ball VP Jr so I can do some swells, but again - I need to not get lost or caught up in the delay/wah/swell orgy that they're doing. Thoughts?
