I've been interested in experimenting with some new tones because I got bored the other day and found one that I can't decide if I like or not. I kinda want to try playing with it to make my mind up.

So, does anyone have any idea how to get Mic Todd's (from Coheed and Cambria)bass tone? I'm using a modified J-Bass through a Peavey TNT 115. The bass has an active pre-amp and a P at the neck and a soapbar at the bridge. Until recently, Mic Todd used Spector basses (with the same pickup configuration) and a Geddy Lee J. Good examples of his tone can be found on the songs Neverender, The Running Free, Everything Evil and The Crowing.

Your advice is much appreciated, thanks guys.

I do well with a bit of mids in there... but I think his double thump style of playing adds A LOT to his tone.


Yeah, I still haven't learnt how to do that yet - I've been making do with a really hard attack on my strings. I never knew he had a midsy sounds as he doesn't cut through very well on their records.

I think he cuts through well on the first two albums, and a bit on good apollo (Ten Speed, The Willing Wells)


So midsy, doublethumping and Spector basses, got it. Any other advice.
