Ok so I'm one whos always wondered what Cliff could do with out the effects, and I came across this enchanced bass mix of Ride the Lightning..

http://

That is quite a tone he had there!, its a shame the final mix had to be cruel and bury it though

Mesa D-180 head, Mesa 4x12 and custom 1x15 cabs. On this record, he used his Rickenbacker modded with Gibson and Seymour-Duncan pickups. That distortion is from flogging the 6L6GC power tubes in his amp to the brink of death. No pedals there!

Part of me sees Cliff as newb stuff, but he was one of my original inspirations, so I still love it no matter how much I "mature"

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
#11
I think on the released mix of Ride the Lightning, Cliff still uses this tone, just alot lower in the mix.
#12
This is just a remix of the released version. I think the guy took the tracks from the 'Rock Band' game and simply remixed them, as they have seperate instrument tracks.

i love the sound of the bass, but as a whole the song sounds so much different. It sounds more of bass dominatent parts in most of the song (duh, it's supposed to sound like that i know cuz its enhanced) but the song as a whole feels like i am listening to guitarists on 1 side playing and then a bassist playing on the complete opposite side of the stage. Not hearing it as one jam but rather 2 seperate parts.

Honestly though, there are some sweet parts that the bass is amazing. I can't deny that.

my answer is kinda vague, but o well.

EDIT: nvm i didnt know it was seperated tracks from rock band..

That's awesome, Metallica should definitely re-release their albums with the bass audible (although not quite this prominent in the mix). Believe it or not, I love the tone. I love the whole cranked-tube-amp sound.

Actually, this does sound kind of good. In fact, I would love the tone if it was only a little more bassier, in this video, it sounds a little too nasally to me, if that's the word I'm looking for.

+1 I love Cliff as he's one of my big influences and I like his clean and distorted tones but I don't love them....I do love his writing though...

I have mixed feelings about Cliff.... I don't care for his approach to bass at all, but I do dig his approach to music and life in general.

Same here.

I'm not much of a fan of the tone in that video though

Nice to hear it like that but I dont feel for the tone.

ALTHOUGH, the same user uploaded the same thing for Blackened, finally you can hear Jason and it sounds alot better(maybe too enhanced)!

I'm ****ing learning Blackened on bass now.....I've realized that my favorite riff from Blackened sounds just as cool on bass.....
