What is the perfect tone? It's a question that has vexed guitarists since Les Paul first amplified "The Log" back in 1940. Does it have the acidic bite of Michael Bloomfield, circa '65? Or the molasses-crunch of Mitch Mitchell (the Ohio one) on Guided by Voices' "Stabbing a Star?" Or the warm ethereal glow of Steven Malkmus on Pavement's "Here?" (One thing is certain: Carlos Santana's tone is NOT the perfect tone.)
Ultimately, asking one to describe the "perfect tone" is like trying to describe the most enchanting part of a Harrisburg late-summer night sky: There are a thousand answers...
It is in this spirit that we here at Little Amps continually strive to attain coffee perfection. While there is no "right" answer, it's the process itself, the searching, and the experimentation that we find so enchanting.
So from all of us here at Little Amps, thanks, as always, and rock on! (Just don't call us "Carlos Santana in a cup!")
