If it weren't for Fryette we'd still be playing amps without resonance controls. I can't imagine a world without them. Pretty sure Mesa ripped it off him and he shrugged it off. His Malcontents series is pretty good, though time stamps would help a lot. So much knowledge and history in those episodes and the random stuff that comes up sometimes is great too.
Good info here. Curious what power amp you used, if any.I had the IICP and UL modules. The IICP definitely gets a very convincing Mark tone. I felt like it lacked the punch of my Mark IV, but maybe that's just how the IIC+ is. I didn't know it, but apparently Steven Fryette co-designed the IIC+ with Randall Smith... So I imagine it's damn close. That said, the clean channel on that module is probably the best I've ever heard out of any amp. It's seriously great.
The Ultralead module NAILED the tone of my SigX and then some. So much so that I got rid of the amp shortly after acquiring the module. Interestingly, I felt the Deliverance module was boring and lacked balls. The UL module could get all the tones the Deliverance could and a lot more.
