    I don't know if it's true or not, but there are stories about Eric Johnson saying the battery brand in his stomp tuner impacts tone... I think that's taking the whole tone chain thing just a little too far. But it may just be internet lore anyway, so...

    Al...I sold my Soldano SLO 100 last year. Yes....the numbers did go up to "11". And I was never able to get it above "4" in my basement without shaking the foundation. I played it through a full stack of 2 4X12's that were the speakers "Heart" used on tour in the 80's The amp was made by Mike Soldano as an exact copy of Howard Leese's Soldano SLO #2. It was a very loud amp, to say the least. Traded it, and the speaker stack for an ME-1.

    ALRIGHT ALRIGHT! So I didn't know certain amps can go up to 11! What will you come up with next? Guitars with two necks?

    I think he's distanced himself from comments that he could tell one battery from another - or words to that effect (Pun Alert!).

    He talks about how a battery (And it's amount of charge) affects his fuzz tone though - and there may be some truth to that.

    Yeah, there is some truth to it. I had a power supply on my former pedalboard that allowed me to vary the voltage and sag on one of the outputs, and it made a small difference on both the Fulldrive II I had at the time, but strangely enough, it made a very big difference on my wahs (a Teese Picture Wah and a Fulltone Clyde Deluxe at the time). So I used this circuit to power my wah.

    To prevent the issue of stopping playing, adjusting the controls, and then resuming play with a pause in between, which plays tricks on your memory of a given sound, I had my son adjust the voltage controls while I played until I reached the sound I liked. It's a good way to do it, because you're hearing the differences as the control is adjusted.

    What was the difference on the wahs, you ask? It seemed to sweeten them up and make them less spiky.

    Guys, I was searching for a way to "out-joke" you, eventually digging up the "darkest secret in the history of rock'n'roll":



    And it's REAL! No need for amp capo ever again, for I'm gonna be in possession of THE PICK OF DESTINY:

    I may be dating myself with this one, but everytime I see a picture of Rick Nielson from CT....I am reminded of his doppelganger....IMO, he is the spitting image (so long as he is not wearing a beard) of Huntz Hall (Satch) from the old "Bowery Boys" movies. I keep waiting for Leo Gorcey to show up and smack him in the head with his hat.
