"As for pedals, I use the MXR bass D.I. Plus. I keep that pretty much on half gain because it’s a distortion pedal, and usually when you distort the bass you lose a lot of the low-end, so I don’t put it that high up. I combine it with an Ashdown James LoMenzo HyperDrive pedal, and I put that on the highest output possible which makes the whole thing very microphonic; but I can have the high-end distortion of the Ashdown pedal and I keep the bottom with guitar pedals. It’s a really good combination for me."
