Trying To Get A Specific Bass Tone

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Angel Switch, Dec 21, 2013.


  1. I typically preface my questions with a fairly lengthy explanation, so I'll get right to it this time XD
    Shayley Bourget's bass tone from the times when he was with Of Mice & Men has always been my favorite, and I'm trying to get something like that. Any ideas?

    These are some of the best examples:

  2. Sounds like an overdriven fender jazz, with lots of compression and EQ'ing

    All of the above + high gauge stainless steels for all that drop tuning
     
  4. Bingo. Make sure you have lots of wattage at your disposal for all that low end. Happy chugging :D
