Bit of a noob question i know but anyways,

Im looking to get this kinda sound from my bass

I know a better bass, new strings and a good amp would help immensely but i dont have that kinda money at the minute

Im looking to get a sound similar to Krist Novoselic in this vid

Nice and grindy!

Not sure, could be pedal, could be bass amd amp combo!

Try putting the tone control as high as it can go for a more trebly tone.

Try a pick. And playing hard. OD pedal too, I guess.

(I don't really play bass, just guessing.)
