"From the ? Lady alone I
was able to coax Cream, Deep Purple, Jeff Beck, Jack White, George Lynch,
Warren DeMartini, Myself. Sometimes, several of the above could be found in
a single note, depending on how I picked. How you were able to give a
roaring fuzz so much articulation I'll never know. The tone knob is the most
useful I've come across, too.
I'm really surprised by how the ? Lady handles pinch harmonics: they come
LEAPING out of the amp! Low strings, high strings, it doesn't matter.
Using different pickups, guitars and gain/tone settings, I'm able to cover
four decades worth of classic "live" sounds as well. I love the fact
that bringing up the treble on the tone can yield Blackmore circa '72, AND
Cream era Clapton, just by switching to my neck pickup. These tones
aren't exact matches obviously, but certainly in the ballpark, and useably
Which brings me to an important point: I never hear you talk about the ?
Lady's Anglophile personality! Of course her default character is that boxy,
chewy single note muff tone fuzz, but the tone knob's colour palette really
changes the landscape in a hurry.
To my ears, the ? Lady most exhibits the grunt, choke and spit of a
cranked amp when she's rooting for Manchester United."
