    The bass tone in this recording has got its hooks in me. Here it is:

    To me that is magic.

    Questions: What is this tone?

    What bass, preamp, effect, cab, etc could be used to get that sound.

    This tone is my new holy grail, and I feel like I am so far away with Pbass>VT Bass Deluxe>power amp>Eden410 XLT. I am prepared to change any or everything. :help:
  2. You should have no problem eq'ing the gear you have to get that sound.

    I have tried and tried. Through all this tone experimenting, I have decided that the VT Bass is going to be the first thing to go. It just adds to much clack or clank or something that just is not pleasing to my ears. Perhaps I will try a para driver di, or a rusty box or something. But the p-bass also seems so far removed from this in it's thumpy nature. The tone in this recording is faaaaar from thumpy to my ears. I don't know if it would be considered grind or growl or bark. Tone adjectives are tough for me to wrap my mind around.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    P bass with flats, play with fingers, a decent amp with a slight sad face EQ.
