Which distortion

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Outsider, Jan 25, 2012.

  1. Hi

    One of my favorite bands (partially because they are originally south african) have a new single out.
    It sounds like the bassist has some sort of distortion on his bass.

    Can anybody guess what it is? I quite like the sound:
    Civil Twilight - New Single - Fire Escape (its the song that plays on the front page)

    The bass distortion on that song sounded like a behringer bass overdrive pedal, but a boss odb-3 would be a much better choice. it can easily give you that bright distorted sound on that song.
  3. I'm not a well experienced effects guy,, but I thought an odb-3 would do it. I'll try replicate it on mine. Thanks
