Steve Stevens - Guitarist with Billy Idol

 Steve Stevens is best known for his acclaimed guitar work with ex-Generation X singer Billy Idol, but he has also recorded and performed with many others as well.  He and Idol were all over MTV throughout the 80's and since then he's also recorded and/or performed with Michael Jackson, Robert Palmer, Ric Ocasek, Vince Neil, Joni Mitchell, Tony Levin, Terry Bozzio, and many more.  He earned a Grammy in '86 for his contributions to the Top Gun film soundtrack, and in 2008 released his solo album Memory Crash.

Steve uses pedals to enhance his amp tones, and was interested in the the parked wah boost sound of the TightBoost, which is very useful for tweaking soaring solo tones.  After trying out the TightBoost, he requested a second one with a modified upper parked-wah frequency....but after comparing them, he decided that the original consumer-chosen upper wah frequency was the most useful tone.  The TightBoost parked wah frequency center switch was originally tweaked during the 2010 Nashville Amp Expo with help from area artists attending that show.

"The TightBoost sounds REALLY GREAT!.......feel free to list me as a proud user of your stuff."  --Steve Stevens

"I think the TightFuzz is exactly what I needed.  Having the external loop for an eq pedal is SMART!  Keep up the innovative work."  --Steve Stevens
