Modern Rock pick tone using a EBMM Stingray

Recommended Posts

So, my band headed to the studio a couple of months ago to record some new music. One of them was this highly-energetic, bass-driven punk/alternative rock song that really required a tone that "cut through" but at the same time supported the guitars & drums.

I ended up using my #1, a Musicman Stingray from 2004, into a Kemper profiler that emulated a good ol' Ampeg and a Darkglass plugin to get that extra grit.

The result can be seen below, but especially from 2:02 onwards since that's where the heavy bass-driven bridge starts (and there's also a distinctive bassline in the chorus with a nice little fill in the last chorus).

Let me know what you think - do you like the tone? Do you think it fits well in the song? Or is it too harsh/trebly?

Imo it’s the right tone - and level in the mix - for the song. Really fits it well.

Sounds good to me. Really punches through the mix to drive it along

Nice strong tone all the way through.

Thanks guys! Glad to have some positive feedback, tone is very important to me as a bass player. :)
