Q: on you first track here, flat Black Suitcase...a question for A.Bukowski...your tone is so cool, are you overdrive your speakers or do you have some effect that lets you get that 'Fart" Bass sound?

A: I really dig the sound as well, essentially the tone is just obtained by using a sansamp, with a little reverb to add the fuzz. I can't take all the credit though our audio engineer at London Bridge really helped dial in the tone and it sounds great.
