I thought it was some kind of law that Jaco Pastorius has to be top of the bassist list ;)
dude knew how to play but his tone was always AWFUL. seriously, his bass sound is the worst.

Re: Seeking a deep reverb pedal that works well in feedback loops

I think any feedback chain needs a compressor or limiter for safety reasons, in addition to sound quality. I suffered permanent hearing loss after some feedback experiments. use plugs if you're experimenting that loud? i don't think you need a compressor or a limiter, but it does help if you have a...

Re: Post pics of your guitar/bass/amp/pedal setup!

I like to keep it simple. Been thinking of adding a reverb for ambience, but then I kinda feel that guitars are better suited for that and I should just give them space. Next upgrade will however be a better power source and maybe a board with a hard case. No pictures of bass and amp, but I have a C...

Re: feedback sound of guitar without a guitar

make a feedback loop with a bunch of high gain distortion pedals, like a DOD death metal or boss odb-3.

boss RV-6 has never clipped for me, while my oceans 11 is basically unusable unless i have a limiter in the signal chain. what you really need is an old school tape echo unit.

Re: So I spent an hour with a Synthi A today

My friend has a VCS3 and it sounds magnificent. That said I'm not sure I'd want one, the patching is so weird and slow that it's less of an instrument of music and more of an instrument of science, hah.

Ambient creates space, noise fills it. I don't do well with space.
I've heard this before and I disagree. There's plenty of noise that creates a space, while still being too aggressive and mutable to be considered ambient.

Re: Most aggressive and brutal distortion ever

dod corrosion i have a metal x which is supposedly the same pedal, corrosion was just rebranded for the lamb series. it's pretty brutal, but not as brutal as a death metal. actually a boss odb-3 is harsher as well, but the metal x sounds better. Is the Metal X similar at all to the ODB-3? I like ru...

Re: Ahhh... P Bass or J Bass.

Honestly if you want a P sound, get a P bass. Versatility be damned, it just has the best bass tone for rock and punk.

Re: Ahhh... P Bass or J Bass.

PJ, best of both worlds. Honestly tho a p-bass is my favourite for rock and punk, altho I currently play a Jaguar bass with jazz pickups. Id say go for a p-bass, classic tone that sits really well in the mix for rock, punk and hardcore. If you want to be abled to sculpt your tone more, a J is much m...
