Jimmy Eat World "Dizzy" bass tone?

Hey Ross,

Thanks so much for doing this, my bassist continually bugs me to reference the tone in "Dizzy" off of Chase This Light. I was wondering if you could shed some insight into the tracking chains for the bass, it sounds like a Jazz bass to my ears but I could very well be wrong. Great work! Absolutely love that album.

i must apologize .. i do not remember ... sorry ... most of my bass recordings are DI of choice / an Ampeg B15 or B100R or SVT / and an extra track of distortion for dining and dancing
usually the distortion is a zvex wooly mammoth or a sans amp or my friend Blues Sarceno's dad Alex makes the Dirty Boy Bass Bully pedal that is awesome

Hi Ross

What model of Sansamp? Do you use a DI format (bassdriver or PSA-1) or a pedal (Vt bass, Gt-2...) going through the amp?
