    He tunes GCGCF and compresses the hell out of his signal.

    How the crap can you tune to G on the B string of a bass??????
  7. He does cut some mids but dont go overboard on the cutting, he also uses pretty heavy gauge strings. Also if you have a compressor on the trace, use it. But mainly boost the lows and highs, but leave some mids in for harmonics and such.
  8. DR Hi-Beams as well, heaviest set you can buy. Although he does scoop his mids a little(we're not talking Fieldy here), he still has a real punchy tone, probably due to the presence of mids in the Thumb sound. His compression is fairly high.
