: : Need some input here. Currently when i use distortion i am playing through a Metal Zone.
: : I dont like the sound..its too processed. too mechanical. Does anybody out there know of
: : a footpedal type box that will give me more of a natural, less tinny type of distortion?
: : Do you guys(gals) use distortion at all and what do you think about distortion in general.......late..........john
: Sorry John, but I never use distortion. I am crazy about a clean bass sound. I have to say that the best sounding bass distortion I've ever heard was when I caught the Chili Peppers live a couple of weeks ago. Flea's distortion was fuzzy but not so fuzzy that it didn't sound like a bass anymore. The sound didn't lose the bottom end like many distortions do. The sound you are describing sounds more like guitar distortion. Persoanlly, I don't care for distorted bass, but if you like it.......I would just try every stomp box I saw. There are other ways to get distortion as well. What kind of a head do you use? Can you overdrive it? peace
I wouldn't use any effects that take away from the higher purpose of the electric bass... PUSHING AIR. In other, words maybe an EQ,but that's it.
