Favorite Bass Tone

What are some of your favorite bass tones of all time? I like the Overkill bass sound on "The Years of Decay." I like the sound on all of the Mudvayne albums. I also like Iron Maiden's bass sound, Disturbed, RATM, and some others. What are your favs?

Ld.50 definetely has a nice and very unique bass tone, because Ryan did put his bass through his bass cab (ampeg) and his guitarists cab for that treble and mid tone.. very nice tone though, and the ultimate tone of all..

Papa roach!

There bassist has an unbeleivable bass tone, yeah i know there not metal, but listen to the tone of it! its a real bassy nice fingerstyle tone, love it.

Also jaco's tone is very good.

Paul D'Amour's heavy bass sound was the shit, and the bass work on Undertow remains my favorite. (P.S. - He uses a pick).

Jesus, Bill. Us "Bill's" seem to like one brand of something, and swear by it. I swear by Ibanez, and you are all over Warwick's nuts.

I really like the bass sound on Anthrax's "Among the Living". Does anyone know if he uses light distortion or have any idea how he gets that sound?

By the way give that album a listen, paying attention to the basslines. He reminds me of what Steve Harris would sound like if he used a pick. He MUST be influenced by Maiden.

My personal favourite would HAVE to be Alex Webster from Cannibal Corpse. His Modulus 5-string bass sounds amazing, pumped through the classic Ampeg SVT and 8x10. He turns up the gain just a hair, to give it a very clean, yet SLIGHTLY warm/fuzzy tone to it. It cuts through beautifully!

As for Anthrax and Among the Living: an amazing CD all around, but especially the bass lines. I think he does the same thing as Webster (albeit 20 years earlier...lol) and just turns up the gain a bit. Overdriving the pre-amp section of your head will give you that sound, but if you overdo it, it'll sound like shit...not to mention sending a square-wave signal to your speakers, causing the voice coil to jump the magnetic gap and blowing your speaker cab...(speaking from experience here...grrrrrr)

Cheers.
