Haha, I've seen this video before, it's great.

He isn't using any 'special' tuning to get that tone, he did tune his bass to drop D...but that doesn't make a difference in tone. As you can see clearly in the video, he is using 2 Ampeg cabinets, probably Ampeg heads too. Ampeg heads are 'tube' powered (or 'valve' as they would say in England) tubes can cause some distortion when the gain is turned up, causing your final output to have a crunchy/gritty/growly/burpy tone (whatever you want to call it) However...there are some effects that can emulate the tube "burp" effect without having to buy an expensive tube head or preamp. Tell me if you want any help finding these and I'll gladly list some.

~Cheers
