    Sounds like just an overdrive to me. I think the "talkbox" sounds are all coming from tom's guitar, but I could be wrong.

    I saw them live on TV one time, and he used a StingRay 4, but can of course use several different basses....

    it's most definitely a fender jazz. In the early days he used a stingray but from evil empire on he just uses a fender jazz - although he's rumoured to have a rickenbacker he doesn't use it live ( as far as i know) as for calm like a bomb he uses the crybaby bass wah and i think he uses amp overdrive because he claims he doesn't have an overdrive pedal. His distortion is a marshall guv'now and he also uses a delay of some kind which he uses for no shelter and ashes in the fall
    Hope this helps
