    He used a Pignose on ALL guitars on "One Size Fits" all. He got bottom, mid, high end out of it. He just miked it up. I don't think it was the smallest Pignose battery amp, though. Rare to see that he dared to use it live though. Another one that I thought used small Pignose amps all of the time was old prog stalwart Mike Oldfield. Just high mids, no bottom, not spikey treble. But he didn't. Some kind of elaborate direct guitar... but nuff of this.

    While I did like FZ music (especially the humorous ones) and his guitar STYLE I didn't think he had that a great sound on his guitars. Too jagged, square waved and a bit ugly, but that was his main parole "put some garlic in your sound".
