Our good friend, Nathan Navarro, is one hell of a bass player – and one that is not afraid of punching in a few pedals to make things even more interesting.
Sure, adding an envelope filter pedal – or wah – is a classic bass trick to funk up the sound. Just ask Bootsy Collins! But how about also giving your sound a healthy shot of pure dirt? That is exactly what Nathan Navarro does in this video. First the wah, making it sweet and funky – then the Source Audio AfterSchock is kicked in to add a brutal edge and attack that just elevates the sound to a whole new dimension.
