Toll Bass technique?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Yvette, Aug 19, 2001.


  1. Hi,

    I had a discussion with my guitar player yesterday about technique the Tool bass player is using to get his inmense sound. I was already wondering for lomger but I allways thought it was in his equipment someway (lot of punch etcetera) but my guitar player was convinced that he uses a lot of slapping (we tried it out and I must admitt it is very well possible) but does anyone know if this is true?

  2. No slapping, but he uses a pick and a lot of other guitar techniques. He uses a Wal bass and some effects including a Digitech Whammy, I think.

    I posted a reply to a similar question not too long ago. I thought at first that Justin Chanclor was using tapping on songs like "schism". Turns out it's a pick and a really clean tone. It sorta sounds like that wal he uses has a piezo pickup in it or something similar.
