    I'm pretty sure he uses an MXR Bass DI+

    far beyond driven came out way before the mxr pedal...

    i think the sound you are thinking of is basically straight up SVT grind... here is his stage rig from 2000.

    No input on my part, but I must agree on his bass tone being absolutely brilliant for Pantera.
     
  5. He's been using the SVT-4 Pro for years now and imho the tone sounds just like a grinding SVT. No pedals whatsoever I guess.

    He definitely uses pedals at times... check out "Uplift" and Reinventing the Steel. Crazy wah action. Also, in the link i posted he has a chorus pedal. I can't think of any obvious times he uses it, but he may use it to thicken up his sound under Dimebag's wall 'o heaviness...

    Most of his sound is the classic 'grind' tone of a Spector through an Ampeg..... luffly!!! ;) :bassist:
