recording engineer Bill Skibbe: “Baby Says” – that modulating guitar sound, and a lot of the tone in that, comes from this old Maestro Rhythm & Sound pedal, which is more of a suitcase than it is a pedal. It comes in a big Samsonite suitcase [laughs]. They''re awesome because they have the original Maestro Fuzztone in them, and then they have two tone stops that going along with that, and they''re unreal sounding. They also have insane modulation that I always think of as like an African Manu Dibango sound—this messed-up, fuzzed, modulated crazy sound. It''s also got an Auto-wah in it, and a bass synthesizer, which we didn''t use because it doesn''t track very well. It really blended well with the Twin. It''s an effect that you can''t get out of a tremelo that''s on an amplifier.more
