Just as long as they avoid  the Fuzzrocious BDPG.

I'd guess P Bass with tone up, played with a plectrum, fresh steel strings with a low enough action that they get a bit buzzy, then some sort of overdrive then EQ'd with high-mids and treble turned up.

Love Viagra Boys.

 

Great bass tone on that song. Shades of JJ Burnel.

 

Most pictures online show him playing a jazz bass, seemingly modified with active electronics. A few pictures of a P bass too. Backline mostly seems to be SVTs and ampeg stacks - 2018 rider stipulates this for backline.

 

Reckon you could get this tone pretty easy with a P bass, or favouring the neck pickup on a J, into a sansamp or an OD pedal that simulates that ampeg grind.

I've got this picture from his pedalboard. Saw them on soundcheck yesterday, he switches back and forth between the Black pedal and the gold one on his board.

 

The RustyBox is always on.

 

Can someone identify these two pedals?

 

Thanks!
