    I know a lot of Mark Sandman's sound is in the use of the slide and the bass itself. However, did he have any sort of reverb pedal on his bass, or was the verb put in during studio time?

    Also, did he use any overdrives or distortions for his grit, or was it all amp driven?

    I don't know about when he performed live, but a large percentage of his playing and singing on "Cure For Pain" was direct into a 4-track recorder at his apartment, with no miked cab or much studio gear. Some of the tone/flavor was later studio processing. Although I would love to know if anything aside from his bass and hands was particularly responsible for the grindy tone in "Buena". :bassist:

    For my African American Music class we were required to bring a listening example of modern interpretations of music we discussed in class and I chose that song.

    I'd forgotten how amazing that tone is.
