Hello, Double Bass forums! This is the first time i've stepped out of the Electric forum page, so consider me a total newb to the workings of double bass. But anyway: recently I was introduced by two friends to the fantastic band John Butler Trio. Their bassist plays a double bass (as well as an electric, I believe, on some songs). These two friends, in fact, are performing the JBT song "Betterman" for a school concert, and told me that the "live version" of this song had in it a bass solo you just couldn't believe. I checked it out and was floored: essentially, it's an extended jam on a double bass through an envelope filter and slight OD, which sounds FANTASTIC! I just wanted to know, is the practice of running a double bass through an effects chain as common/accepted as it is for electric players?
