Yes I talked about ”woman tone ” in this discussion… the distortion serve the sustain but if you rolled down the tone you cut the distortion frequencies … its less agressive … you can use it in a gentle ballad…. I dont call it distortion then

rolling down the tone control cuts the high frequency content, but the mids, lo-mids, low frequencies still distort or saturate.It is still distortion, not calling it that only complicates the issue.
