I know he uses P-Basses tuned half a step down, and a pick, but I was wondering what effects and/or EQ settings, anyone?

P.S. Some songs with noticeable bass bits:

-1000 Good Intentions (Intro/Verses & Bridge)
-The Unraveling (Intro)
-Like The Angel (Intro & Outro)
-To The Core (Bridge)
-Life Less Frightening (Bass Solo/Bridge)
-Blood To Bleed (Intro/Verses)
-Drones (Intro)
-But Tonight We Dance (Intro/Verse 1)
-Long Forgotten Sons (Intro)
-The Dirt Whispered (Intro/Verses)

Does he use effects? If he does he uses them very discreetly because I've never noticed any.

Neither have I really, I just figured I'd ask, but I think its just EQ settings

Some form of trebly OD- a TS type sound. And play really hard.

Upstrokes? Really? Not downstrokes?

Hmm, well... okay. That sounds pretty hard. I just use down, I can double strum I just don't like to.

a Tech 21 pedal (VT Bass/SansAmp) would help you achieve a tone very similar to his.

I've heard about that one, but what kind of settings should be used? Treble up, bass down, and a bit of distortion? Oh and its got Level and Character knobs too, I know its hard to explain what something sounds like, but what are those two for, or would I even need them for this?

Fair enough I'll probably pick one up in a month or two, but 'til then what I have now will do just fine.

Edit: I didn't notice the link first time, oops

in the live show portion of the "generation lost" dvd you can see a boss chorus pedal on top of his amp.

seeing as how its one pedal perched on top of his head it leads me to believe its his only effect.
I play bass!
