Swedish death metal bass tone
I just scored some bass equipment and wanna tinker around with learning some old Unleashed / Entombed / Dismember style material. The amp is an Ampeg B2R and my bud kicked me down a Boss bass overdrive pedal. Anyone got any suggestions for tone settings......I'm new to bass so any help is cool.

Well I'm not exactly sure what tone you're talking about. But if I were you I'd just sit down for a while and play with the settings on the pedal & amp. Experimentation is the key when looking for tones.

I play a lot of death metal stuff, though not particularly what you play. I use a Boss ME20B bass effects pedal which allows me to have a 4 band EQ instead of the 3 on my regular amp. For the most part, I boost up the bass a lot and the high mids a moderate amount.

I don't know what you have on your amp but since you're new to bass, I'm assuming you have a 3 band eq. I would suggest boosting the bass by a lot, treble by a moderate amount, and mid only slightly. But always mess around with the settings and see what sounds best to you.

If your looking for a tone that will cut through the mix, turn up your mids; highs and lows and keep the bass and treble in the middle with the bass slightly higher. Thats what works for me.

Try this,

As far as death metal tone goes, I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me..
