    How do I get that "Phil Lesh sound"? (short of buying an Alembic....:meh: )
    I play through a SWR 2004 head/1967 Fender Bassman cab/Sans Amp di...basses at my disposal: Fender Hot Rod PBass, Warwick Corvette, or an Ibanez ArtCore....
    any suggestions on settings, tweaking I could try?
    Thanks!

    Use a Modulus Q6 and a thick pick with some Meyer powered speakers?

    I'd go with the Pbass and crank some mids but either way, that's a tall order...

    Lesh is more
