Fuzz experts: April Wine question

I do not know, but I saw them open for Blue Oster Cult. They rocked. One guitarist played a strat and the other played a Les Paul. They both had Marshall stacks. I love the part in "I Like to Rock" where they play I think it is a lick from "Day Tripper" by the Beatles and Keef's lick from "I can't get no satisfaction" over the Beatle's lick, then their own riff from the song over those two.

Thanks for the thoughts guys. I am giving it a listen again and it just sounds so friggin' cool, but very mysterious to me how that sound was created. I hear the comments on rolling the tone off, but it just seems to have a very trebly bite to it too. It seems to me that it is definitely a pedal of some sort, not just an amp. I do not have experience with a Tonebender Mk II -- can you point out some songs that you know it was used in?

 

I have not heard "you could have been a lady" but I want to after your fuzz face comment. They are a cool band, that's for sure.

Dismiss my comments if I'm off base but I think I read that they used a harmonizers in a lot of their stuff. :confused: I play Just Between You and Me through a Zoom G2.1u using the harmonizer and it gets pretty close, good enough for home use but not quite exact.
