Please delete one of these threads, you do not need two.

Chris from muse uses a special setup, when using effects he has both a wet and a dry bass signal running to separate amps. The distorted sound is a Big Muff but for the more synthy sounding things he uses an Akai Deep Impact pedal and live he actually uses a synth a lot of the time.

We really do need a "sound like insert famous bassist here" thread to be stickied....sigh

Big Muff is NOT the answer, ok, most people can't really afford to Bi-Amp, so a Big Muff will kill their low end, and they'll sound more like Mr Cliff Burton...

What you want is something like the Boss ODB3, a distortion that's closer to fuzz, gives a pretty good approximation of Chris's tone on a budget, but yeah, good luck finding a Deep Impact,and when you do, tell me so I can steal it

But you're not gonna get his exact studio ir live tone, ones a studio tone, and he has a lot better equipment than you, you dont have £1000's of pounds to spend on your setup, unless you do, then Im goin to rob you too

I got a good Muse tone with the Ashdown Hyperdrive, since it keeps the bottom end it almost sounds like a bi-amp with a clean and distorted signal
