    I have a bass board built for rehearsals and any recording I might want to do at the house. I have the mandatory tuner, then compressor and an MXR DI+. It gives me a second tone, as well as a distortion that I can blend to taste.

    I love the Sansamp/Tech 21 stuff for bass.

    If you want to sound as BAD as humanly possible -buy an 80s DOD Bass Stereo Chorus pedal -and turn it up!

    Or listen to the bass tone of Journey or some Ratt songs and laugh hard.

    Or anything Billy Sheehan has played on.
    His playing is great but that chorus tone...not so much.

    HAHA -totally forgot about Billy -didn't Stu Hamm do the Chorus thing too? -Except with FINGERLESS GLOVES? ***Crowd Goes Wild!****

    I absolutely hate Bass Chorus. -Makes an single note on a Bass sound like somebody made an 8 string upright double bass with duplicate noted adjacent flatwound strings -TERRIBLE

    Hey, but seriously -that Sansamp Bass stuff is super legit -when I played bass in a band, I got to ditch my giant SVT Head (UUUUGGGGGG) for a Samsamp pedal and smaller solid state power amp.

    I think Blackmore is only playing the "oriental" solo. The rest of "Sailing away" is octave fuzz bass and synth.
    The bass intro sounds huge.
