Is it all down to the pedal? Yup, that's about as helpful as I am when it comes to guitars.

Well, yes. I can mimic a keyboard as much as I can from a playing-style standpoint, but in terms of changing the actual sound, it would be a pedal-type situation.

I guess one of these should work. I don't know much about them though so check harmony-central.com (http://reviews.harmony-central.com/reviews/Effects) for reviews.

I have an amp that has a setting that makes it synthlike.

Other than something like that I really can't think of anything that would work too well. Keep the tone up, that helps.

Would putting distortion on it help? I'm trying to imagine a bass with distortion, and it sounds like it might be kinda synthy, but I'm completely unsure.

This should be moved to Your Band, the greatest forum on the internets EVAR.

I actually play my bass with a digitech bass distortion pedal all the time, but I can affirm that it definitely doesn't sound synthy. Not a bit.

Wasn't it "Save me Jebus", or is that not the only Jebus line?
