Mic: It was a Yamaha rack thing, the TX-816, it was basically eight DX-7s in a module, together with a Roland JX-8P. I made a brassy sound from the JX-8 and used a factory sound from the Yamaha, and just layered them together. It’s a very special sound. I haven’t been able to create it on any other...

Steve might also say to DiMarzio "I like the sound of pickups wound anti-clockwise with gossamer thread by virgins at full moon while a unicorn is in the room."
