Hey guys, I'm trying to get the "70s tone" out of my bass, I'm not totally sure on how to describe it properly, but some of its features are: -you can't hear the twangy highs or fret noise -it's kind of "punchy", as in low-mids boosted Some examples of what I mean could be: Starman, by David Bowie ( ) Of course these are just some examples which I choose because you can hear the bass pretty well. What amazes me is that you can always hear the bass flawlessly and without the twangy-like sounds I don't look too much except in some more progressive style rock. What I've tried so far: -Flatwounds. I bought D'Addario chromes, and I later found that they actually have a bright sound, so this might have been a mistake. -Pick. I use a pick most of the time lately. I try to play between the neck pickup and the neck. -Boosting frequencies, even if I'm not 100% on how to do this and I usually end up messing too much with my tone. I still can't get what I'm looking for. Do consider though, that my hardware is pretty limited due to being a student . I mainly use my bass with a fender '68 P pickup and my SansAmp BDDI clone (self made, should resemble the behringer v-tone more than the SansAmp actually) and I use my laptop for EQing and compressing. Have you got any ideas to help me achieve that kind of tone? I've tried explaining what my hardware consists so that you could probably give me some more specific ideas. Thank you!
