I LOVE the tone that setzer gets on this track. Any idea how to get this? Is it his normal 53 bassman? Does he have a pedal? What you guys think

I'd hazard the really bright rythym track might be some sort of small speaker like a champ or princeton, maybe a Vox? The lead sounds a lot like my old bandmaster so I wouldn't be surprised if it was a bassman with maybe some sort of external overdrive. MXR Distortion pluses and Ibanez Tube Screamers were the hot ticket back then. Might have also been some obscure English rigs too. Anybody else got a SWAGt?

I'm thinking small amp too.

He has used a Supro in the past i believe.

He has a Tweed Princeton. He uses it in the Video where he's arranging a tune - my favourite things I think..

Brian Setzer rarely put pedals into his arsenal other than the boss analog delay or EH deluxe memory man delay sitting back by his 63 blonde bassman. Until he got his Roland RE301 space echo.. for a short sprint he went on tour with a telecaster and had a small pedal board for the unconventional "The Knife Feels Like Justice" stuff... BUT in the song
little Miss Prissy, from the Gonna ball album in '81 produced in England with Dave edmunds.. that sound Brian got was from his tweed 410 bassman, a solid state vox royal guardsman and straight to the board. I have been unable to find what amp went to what track but it was an "either, or, or all" for that album.
those applications are what comprised the sound of the Gonna ball album
