I have heard a couple of records recently that i love the distortion tone from the bass players. Of coarse everyone and myself loves Tim Commerford's sound. There is another band called Spineshank and on their album "Strickly Diesel" the bass tone is awesome (to me). i have heard of Tim using a Marshall Guv'nor and the guy from Spineshank using a Rat. Can anyone shed some light as to if a Rat or Guv'nor are good. Like Tim i want to try to get an "aarrrrh" sound rather than a "sssshhhhh" sound. Thanks to anyone who can help.
