    Oh man, that's probably a question that nobody except Billy can answer.
    Billy used a lot of gear, especially in the older days. The only guy that has a bigger rack is The Oz (The Who's John Entwistle) :D

    But he can do it with just a SVT stack too. It's more in the fingers (as always).

  4. Welcome to TalkBass Timothy!

    You might try posting in the proper forum (AMPS in this case) to get an answer concerning amps and settings.

    That's where I'm sending this thread now...

    Well, He does use his BSP, (Billy Shehann Pre-amp) wich has a distortion/overdrive tube channel.
    He runs it stereo to get that tone.
