I'm looking to create a really old and gritty yet obviously loud bass kind of sound. I've been experimenting with my line 6 amp and all its pre fx it has to offer but am wanting to branch out and get quite alot more out of my bass. I've been looking to bassists like Paul D'amour (ex-Tool), Ben Shephard (Soundgarden), John Myung (Dream Theater) and Liam Wilson (Dillinger Escape Plan) for influences. I'm also wanting to create a really fat distorted sound so it almost sounds like I'm playing a guitar through a bass amp. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Cheers!
