what kind of effect/pedal did he use?
Cliff used a vintage morley power wah/boost wah, a green EHX Russian Big Muff and he used some kind of delay, but im not sure what kind...
if you want a PWB, i know where to find one so PM me
Back in them days it must have been an American Big Muff Fuzz pedal don't think they made the russian ones back then (Could be wrong of course).
Oh DO A SEARCH this is one of the most discussed threads in effect.
Don't know why it's asked so much its not like his use of effect is amazing or revolutionary We need more Mars Volta and Justin Mendel-Johnson threads
It may not be revolutionary, but it was pretty distinctive and recognizable. Its also nearly impossible to replicate precisely even with the same gear in question, so people are always trying to find the missing element.
Cliff said in an interview that it was a green russian muff...
but yeah, i found a live solo where he uses delay and for an 80's thrash metal bassist, i found it pretty revoloutionary.
Kind of like saying "I don't know why McCartny's use of walking bass lines was amazing or revolutionary." or "I don't know why Jaco's use of speed was amazing or revolutionary.", huh?
i found a solo where he useds a digitech whammy!
All I meant was using fuzz and wah together is not all that revolutionary, which is very very true especially in the 80's.
I did not knock the mans playing or tone or anything other than stating that fuzz and wah together wasn't revolutionary, which it isn't recognisable does not equaly revolutionary and I don't understand why we need a thread a week about Cliff's effects that was all.
How so? you're not really comparing Cliff to Jaco and McCartney are you?
Sorry if I seem to bash not intentional I promise, but people seem to have got the wrong end of the stick.
Nor was the over use of speed or walking bass lines.
Sure- why not?
Shall we just put it down to personal opinion and not fall out
That was my point
I think Cliff was dead before the Whammy pedal was invented.
it sounds like it to me... bad tracking and all
were these guitar pedals....or did he use bass pedals?
They were just pedals, mostly used for guitar, but worked very well on bass.
Care to share a sample?
i think cliff would detune his string whilst playing to imitate a whammy then tune it back up, he does it on 4 horsemen
I want a pedal that would get me a close not exact sound to Cliff's pulling teeth.
You just asked this question. Merging to a single thread. Asking the same question repeatedly in new threads won't get you a different answer.
Cliff Burton died in 1986.......the Whammy was introduced in 1991.
