ThunderBird(Gib) Sound Samples?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Osama_Spears, Mar 20, 2003.

  1. Anyone know where I can get some Thunder Bird bass sound samples?

    I have heard alot about it...

  2. try this-

    UK trad-hard-rock revival band The Darkness' Iron Maiden-esque cover of Radiohead's "street spirit".

    It's a Gibson Thunderbird played with a pick through an Ampeg SVT, slightly distorted, and nice and loud in the mix.
  3. Oooh...nice tone...

    Columbus, OH
    The Donnas
    System of a Down
    Wishbone Ash (New England would be a good album for this)
    Cheap Trick's first couple albums

    Allen Woody with Gov't Mule, especially the live stuff. And his bass instructional video.

    Wow! a prime example of a GOD AWFUL cover of a great song. I don't know if I should laugh or cry!?!

    :D :bawl:

    Perhaps when I am done laughing, I'll cry.
  7. :D you either love or hate The Darkness, with their over-the-top vocal histrionics....

    It sounded like King Diamond with a hernia.
  9. in the UK the Darkness have been at no.1 in the album charts for some months now.
    they've begun touring in the U.S. now- and, if the NME is to be believed, to a great reception.

    they could support Spinal Tap!

    Try getting Burn Baby Burn by Ash. Mark Hamilton uses a Gibson TBird and the tone of the TBird's pretty distinctive on this particular song.
