Hey guys. I was wondering if anyone knew what this bassist was using to get the dub step sound. He obviously has something on his finger, but what is it?

It looks like, and don't hold me to this, that the bass player is wearing a conductive glove (for using touchscreen stuff) on his fretting hand, and is using an electromagnetic strummer on his thumb. I'm not completely sure though....

It's a Source Audio Hot Hand with a Bass Envelope Filter. He's basically controlling the filter with his hand rather than with a pedal.

thx guys. I'm not a huge dub step fan or a bass player, but that cover is awesome and I was super curious what was going on with that bass lol

Yeah this. It's funny, as soon as I read the title I knew you'd link this video. I used one of the older rings for a while as a filter for my guitar.

So how does it work?


The ring just senses how far away it is from a certain point, the bass guitar, and uses that to control the sweep of the envelope filter.
