Help!I want 2sound like Kim Deal!


Hi i really like Kim Deal (of the pixies) bass sound and i was wondering if anyone knows how she does it. Its pretty similar to Nikolai Fraiture (from the strokes') sound. Its very clean and has a lot of cut the best songs to hear it on are 'Hard to Explain'(the strokes) and Most of the songs off 'Death to the Pixies' particularly 'Gigantic'.
I'm pretty close with it, I play with a pick and have a Mex Fender Jazz Bass with a sixty watt Peavey amp.
I'm not sure whether a compressor would help or not. Theyr'e both really tight players. Help!
