In this lesson I will show you how to check and adjust the intonation on your bass. In this case, I am playing a Fender Jazz Getty Lee Edition bass with a Badass bridge using a phillips head screwdriver and tuner to adjust the intonation.
In this lesson, I will show you how distortion can affect your bass tone. Distortion pedals often imitate the sound of tube bass amps. I use a SansAmp Bass DI driver pedal in my rig and I will show you how it sounds with various settings.
In this tone bone video, we'll look and listen to the Aphex Punch Factory optical compressor. Its one of the better sounding pedal compressors that I've used and a good start to learning about compressors on the bass.
In this lesson, I will show you a bass with flatwound strings and talk about how they affect your tone. Flatwounds are a great way to get a vintage sound from your electric bass. I'll also show you a string muffling technique using a piece of foam pipe insulation to get an even more old school tone.
