    does it stack well
    what's the best

    creamy
    boutique
    clone
    Klone
    TS / TS-style

    yet little mention of:

    harmonically rich
    even / odd harmonics
    balanced bass response
    responsive
    fast / slow response
    super awesome
    frickin' tasty
    deeeelishus highs
    farty
    splattery
    loveable
    adorable
    death metally

    time to expand our vocabulary, no?
