Greg Wells On Using Bass Amp Simulators

Bass guitar plays one of the most critical roles in a band, despite what the lead singer says. It provides the foundation of the band's melodic content while moving the groove in support and along with the drummer.

All of this responsibility can make it a delicate instrument to get right in the recording process.

In Episode 7 of "Greg Wells Start to Finish," we found Greg sitting in the control room with a Rickenbacker bass in his hands, getting ready to put down the bass line for Bryce Drew's song, "Lucky Number."

What we did not find, was Greg's trusty Ampeg SVT Classic head and 4x10 cabinet he has used in the past.

In our latest article, we discuss his use of the Sans Amp RBI on the track, as well as some other options available in the hardware and software domains.
