my main bass is a Spector Euro 4 string in black and blue stain with stock EMG pickups and i installed an Aguilar OBP-1 active preamp in it. i finally got the bitch to work right and it sounds absolutely incredible. i couldn't be happier.

my backup bass is a Schecter Stiletto Deluxe 4 string in black. it plays great, but shitty wood, so i'm looking to trade it in for probably a Schecter Stiletto Elite neck-thru. i'm really impressed with how good Schecter basses play and how they sound.

both basses are strung with D'addario XL roundwound strings, .055-.110 and tuned low C, F, A#, D#

i have 2 other basses, a Carlo Robelli 5 string and a Jackson JS-40 4 string, both of which suck donkey balls and i'm either gonna sell them or destroy them.

Samson AG1 airline Wireless
Boss TU2 pedal tuner
SansAmp Bass Driver/DI (by far the most essential part of my sound)
SWR 550x amp head
SWR Goliath III 4x10 cabinet
Monster Cables
Dunlop Ultex picks 1.14mm

i can honestly say that i am completely happy with my gear. now that i have my Spector working, i am finally happy with my sound. if anything i'll add another SWR 4x10 cabinet, just because i can, but that's about it

go with either EMG, or Bartolini pickups. i think you'll be happy with either one. i have EMG P&J set up in my Spector and the thing sounds awesome. and it has an extremely high output too. i would suggest Seymour Duncan Basslines as well but they're passive

Its the lower price one, not a export, i cant remember off hand. I put all good skins on on them and tune them the best i can.
Mk-012, yeah those are a good bargin for the buck.
Typo: i have the e602(the kick mic) sorry. Audio tech has 2 differant tom mics that "from i heard" sound good. you should check them out.

Compression for bass, unless 1) you have a lot of pedals & 2) expect to play out of a PA, is not completely necessary... as far as I know.

The pickups that are currently in my bass are active, and they seem as though they're the stock pickups. Shit, I wish I knew more about this bass.



toggletoggle post by Josh_hates_you  at Mar 16,2004 1:07pm
no i rarely use a compressor on bass at all even when recording unless it is just to pull the sound forward a little but if you use a compressor properly with an EQ running to it on a side chain the you can cancel out overtones that cause low frequency distortion thus allowing you to play at a higher volume with less feed back and distortion

Hrm, maybe I should start using a compression pedal. I run the Boss Bass Overdrive pedal (ODB-3)
and, if I want a nasty dirty tone, I need to push the treble up... unfortunately I get tons of
feedback. The compression would solve that, no?

the compressor would help the feed back IF USED PROPERLY i havent tried using a feedback destroyer but they make those too BTW i would recomend rack gear for compressors not a pedal-unless the compression is built to a pedal but then i dont think it will have a side chain input which you need to cancel frequencies

ya i've heard that before but they just have such a nice sound, i prob would end up getting the a-series, i like zildjian more than paiste, just a personal preference tho although paiste are pretty fuckin sweet
by the way, can you do ultra fast drum kicks a la morbid angel, amon amarth, among many many others? i've gotten to be kinda fast but not anywhere near my goal, i was wondering if there was some kind of leg exercise (besides obviously just practicing and practicing) such as doing squats or something? if anybody knows any "secrets" fill me in

triggers help those proffessional guys out alot-- if you play heel up or heel down it might make a difference-- some of these guys can do double kicks almost like a double stroke - which is done through a slide technique step down toe then slide toe back and the slide on the way up should be your second kick=4 kicks in the time of 2 wich is hard -- best excercise i am aware of is the Dave Lomabardo methos which is basically to do dbl bass while leaning all the way back to stretch your stomach muscles to add resistance do this as long as you can stand-ankle weights 5 lbs help and when practicing always make sure you are steady if you go too fast and you hear the flow break then slow down and control it ---- speed = nothing without control

Bro if you are going to play death metal/grind or anything really for that matter these are the pedals to get. I've been playing these for the past 4 years and wish I had found them sooner. Once you learn the techniques and tricks of the pedals your options are limitless. Well worth the money spent . In time you will see that if you buy them.

He only started using the longboards lately. I played a show with hateeternal a couple of years ago and he was still using the same pedals he had bought in 1992. The original axis. I know this because he was very proud of them lasting as long as they did.

Why don' t you like triggers? Let me guess, you are one of those skeptics who thinks it doesn't take much to play with triggers. If not please explain so I may be clear.

I noticed that jogging helped my leg's a little, in terms of dbl bass.


If you won't exercises to do you should check out some drum sites that will help tremendously. Jumping rope is excellent for double bass. Also wear leg weights for your own personnal practice time an then take them off for band practice. Heel up and down exercises while sitting at work are great to do as well. Your options are limitless, you just have to practice, practice, practice. That is the most important part.

a drum trigger merely makes the drum beat sound better. take the bass drum for example. if you are doing fast double bass, and the drum is only miked, the sound coming through the PA will sound muddy, because it's only picking up alot of air being pushed through. hook up a trigger to the drum, and you get a processed beat every time. this will make ever drum hit discernible and sound good. triggers can't be used to make u sound faster than you really are going. they are hooked up onto the drum.

Do you use triggers at all? I've got an AlesisDm5 and I only trigger the bass drums. I beleive that if you know how to tune your toms correctly you shouldn't have to be a trigger whore like some that are out there. But it is also a preference issue too, some do and some don't.

That is the pedal that allows you to do d.b. with just one foot right? It is not worth the money bro. Don't get it isn't worth it at all. If you are interested in doing db, while utilizing the hi-hat, mapex makes a db pedal that connects to the hi-hat while you play db. It is alright to but to me there is nothing like the feel of 2 bass drums.

Triggers are actually pretty damn cool. I saw Primus when they came around last year and Tim Alexander rocked the triggers like you wouldn't believe. As for metal, I was under the impression that some drummers use triggers on their kick drum as double hits. Uhhh, to be more clear, 1 kick being 2 hits... uhhh. Yeah. Irregardless, I really have no idea what I'm talking about.





toggletoggle post by Josh_hates_you  at Mar 17,2004 12:29pm
you could program a drum machine to do 2 hits for every one beat. its just like programming a delay effect.

and sonar makes a pedal like the dualist called the Giant Step- they have the standard dbl bass setup but they have a dualist setup too and i heard it is fast as fuck- in fact i think sonar giant step pedals won best new drum gear award

but u have to take into consideration, what about parts of the songs where it's only one bass drum hit at a time? it's impossible to have a trigger do that and then do double hits when u need it to. unless you had like a tech in the back to do it for you. but if you have to go through that amount of work, just find a drummer that can pull it off for real.
