    Are they not going to sticky this? I thought it was pretty useful information but then again not everyone loves Timmy C. as much as me.

    Sticky? Nope. Linked in the FAQ? Yes.

    Works for me.
     
  6. I have a word of advice for Timmy C fans...go backward, and find out more about his influences...if you haven't already.

    I did this recently with one of my fave players, and found some interesting discoveries...

    His main influences are Geddy Lee and Byron Totty, or so I have read. He idolized Geddy growing up and Byron Totty's influence comes through in Timmy's tone.

    Oh, sorry. I must have missed it, all I saw was it saying it was from an Audioslave fan forum, and so went ahead and posted the link. I contributed to the article when it was being made. It's good you brought it up over here though, cheers.

    One word for you TeenZombie01... STALKER :bag:











    J/K... I enjoy Tim C's work... def one of the more creative players in modern rock. Always dug his tone as well.

    Couple contradicting statements from his interviews though...

    "My tone comes from my amp and the pickups in my bass. So many people say it's all about the wood. It's ain't about the wood; it's about the pickups, the amp, and how hard you play."

    "I play a super heavy bass too; I tried a light bass but I truly believe that a heavier bass has a slightly thicker tone."

    Oh well, nobody's perfect.

    I really do think he messes with people in interviews and stuff about his bass tone and stuff. If you worked really hard and found this amazing tone that just truly kicked ass, would you tell people how you got it?

    I doubt it.

    Not that I ever found his tone amazing, but if someone took the time to be interested in my gear, I would tell them everything they wanted to know.

    Not spread a bunch of mumbo about hand rewound pickups, ancient tubes, and rewired amps. Having a distortion with a clean blend will get you halfway to his tone. I can't imagine how many simpleminded fans have ruined their pickups/amps/effects because of him.

    Haha, youre right but actually winding your pickups yourself if you know what you are doing can really help. The only thing he really does to his amps is change tubes and wires for the exact same parts just better built. But messing with effects can be very tricky, that is one thing I have not learned how to do that I want to know how to do.

    you got him...i like TIMMY but his opinion that sound is not in wood I MUST LAUGH...if everybody keep his opinion then we play on cheap STAGG-like basses with bartoliniĀ“s pick and would be happy...
    And another quote the main part of sound lays in HANDS...not in bass effect or amp
