Steve, I meant to ask you after the Atlanta show (awesome show/great setlist, btw): you kept using this tone, specifically w/ the Supro and Scott Walker, that had an almost brass attack to it. The closest thing I can think would be you had a short, single repeat delay (?) to create a stutter on the back end of the attack of each note and it looked like you were rolling the tone knob back preceding it to make it really thick; maybe some degree of Mu-tron in there too, I'm guessing, but not a "normal" Mu-tron tone at all. Awesome sound!! Super emotive and really did evoke a horn sound. How'd you do it? Thanks!

Thanks, Mike! Yeah, I guess that would be it. Should have looked through recent threads. I'd love to get that tone, but definitely can't make that many additions to my set up right now, especially just for one sound; and I wonder if the same or a similar effect can't be achieved with some strange combination or tweaking of some general effects that most people would already have…

Anyway, I didn't realize the Walker was fretless now. I did noticed it doesn't have the patina finished pick guard anymore. Any insight on those changes?

Just get that fuzz, the Bone Machine.
That other answer was for the "what's the signal path" question.
I was trying to be thorough. You don't need all that shit, but that's what was going on for me. . .
