How do you get that gritty and nasty bass tone?
i'm interested in what other ppl have to say but to me it sounds like a really cranked tube amp... i've seen weezer bassists using SVTs and orange heads. it sounds like they've just pushed it a little extra for that tune. could be way off though.
I know Matt Sharp used some form of tubish overdrive on that track but I'm not sure if it was a pedal or the head (Matt Sharp left the band after Blue Album). When I have the cash to buy it I'm gonna be giving that tone a go with my EHX English Muff'n. I love that sound though, so utterly filthy .
ok i had a quick look on their site's equipment history...
so i expect on that recording it'll be the orange head with the big muff
That album was recorded live all amps and drums were miced in the same room and played at the same time... so i heard..
Could someone confirm this?
Hahaha this thread title has win all over it.
I've read that now he uses Wren and Cuff Pickle Pie "B".
Matt Sharp has some killer bass tones on Blue and Pinkerton. They are great albums. Does he really get that good of fuzz tone from a muff?
Actually, I believe he left after Pinkerton, partly due to the poor (initial) reception the album received. Nowadays, it seems Pinkerton is held in high regard by alot of emo kids.
I suspect it's the combo of a Muff and a good tube head. I severely doubt you could coax that kind of tone out of a GK head (and I'm a diehard GK user, so no love lost).
I suppose you would be tired of sex if it was your job.
He indeed did leave after Pinkerton, which for some reason wasn't received well(Pinkerton). Mainly due to it being a noisy album, i guess the pop critics don't like noisy grungy rock.
I think the true reason he left was mainly just butting heads with Rivers Cuomo. I think their personalities just clash.
I feel like the "emo kids" was a jab below the belt. I don't consider it emo. Its powerpop/grungepop...its just good music.
I would tend to agree. I think you could get that with some kind of fuzz, maybe even a Boss ODB-3 and power tubes. Or maybe a VT bass pedal doing fuzz and a real SVT. Alot of those guys blend amps. Studio magic never hurts either
indeed he does, according to this link
i appreciate that this is scott shriner, dont all jump down my throat now!
Cool pedal, but the sound clips sound nothing like Weezer.
I was under the impression he left to pursue The Rentals full time but I could be wrong. He's actually rejoined the band now on guitar with Rivers doing a vocal only front man thing.
I always thought the bass on Pinkerton was just overdriven tube amp but listening again today it sounds like bits and pieces of fuzz bass here and there which do sound quite muffish.
a lot of albums are recorded like this. it sounds better than any professional engineer will want to admit.. (sometimes)
when i saw the title of the thread i thought it meant how did weezer become tired of sex....
Listening to it rigth now, it definately sounds liek a muff fuzz, blended with a tube amp. to me.
