I am really diggin' Tye's tone! Does anyone know what his set up is?
I read in ann old Bass Player that he uses Swr stuff but also puts the bass through a Marshall guitar head for top end. Don't know why, he's hardly going for an Entwistle/Squire/Pinnick vibe is he?
I don't know why he would be using a guitar head for top end...his tone is very warm and deep...who knows.
That, and he's got that sweeeeeeet Fender Masterbuilt six string dubbed "The Oar."
I wonder what's happened to ol' Tye? Seems AAF have disappeared, so I wonder what he's doing now?
I was wondering that same thing the other day! They had a sense of humor about themselves and Tye was great.....fickle music business.
That's what happens when the whole marketing push for your band is based on a nostalgia 80's cover trip.
talented or not, they were doomed from the get-go.
Good bassplayer, but AAF seem to have vanished (although they had some nice songs)
This is his rig behind me and my GK rig- 2 SWR Bass 750 X's, 2 Megoliaths.He had no Marshall, the one on stage belongs to our singer.
Seems like its a little difficult to find exactly what his set up is since he is not that popular..
AAF just playedwith a bunch of bands in Detroit at a show called "The Night 89X stole Christmas", it goes on every year and features many bands...this year they had 311, Coheed & Cambria, Our Lady Peace and of course Alient Ant Farm..there were others too that do not come to mind at this moment.
Cantstandsya - so you played a show with AAF? Tell us about your experience man.
The custom made Fender Tye usues is very badass!
I agree Tye's tone is lush, and his playing is excellent..
I just saw them open for 311 two weeks ago.
Edit: regarding his rig, that show had the worst concert sound I have ever heard. I did not hear a note of the bass, just a buzzy mush. He was really entertaining to watch, and he was all over the bass, but what it sounded like, I have no notion. Sound for 311 was much better, though not great.
I just can't figure out, with the quality of the equipment available, why live sound is worse than it has ever been...
One of the bands that I play in(Greenbrier Lane) opened up for them at the Bank Of The West Beach Games last year.We got little spot on a Fox Sports Net show called Fusion TV that showed us playing and a little interview.He was playing his custom Fender and SWR rig.I didn't really talk to him but I spoke with the drummer a little bit and he was pretty cool.Their downfall was the tour bus accident that almost killed their singer.You can still see the scars on his neck from the neck brace/halo type thing they had on him.Anyways, they sounded really good but didn't seem to have too much of a following there to see them...........
IIRC, Doesn't he play a fretless bass solo on one of their songs? Or am I mistaken? If in fact it was him, I'd have to say that it was a beautiful solo without being overly flashing.
