Okay well tone being subjective YMMV. I spent 40 years being ultimately dissatisfied with my tone. Different guitars, amplifiers, speaker cabinets... Nobody told me I wanted a Vox Conqueror. I'd been going into cocked wah pedals, not quite there with the crybaby q-zone, almost there with the SP-1 Spectrum. Then ta-dah, there it is. I even got a Roland JC-120 to finish the package. Got gain and fuzz as a bonus but it turns out the sound I wanted was the Vox MRB switch. Put away all the other pedals and got hours of good times, add a delay or two, still got it. I can break out any set up now and not go somewhere that I don't want to be. 1978-2018 were lean years. Now I can finally move forward in my music career.
