Hello,
How do you reduce the squeakiness of the bottom strings and make the pitch lower on a Vox Brian May Deaky amp?

Not to sound funny but what are you going on about here ?
How do you mean squeeky strings?
And why don’t you just have one post and ask all the questions in that

Hello,
I mean the second to last and last bottom strings being too trebley, how do you reduce the treble on the Vox Brian May for those strings? and what do you do with the tone knob on the RS?

You cant really adjust the amp to individual strings its all or nothing really and personal chose, i don’t have a BM Vox i use and 15watt Vox pathfinder app and a les paul, i have this setup with the pre amp at halfway 3/4 treble half bass and just adjust the volume to what ever i want and that give me a good tone, the my fx are a Boss CE5 Chorus Ensemble, Boss PH2 Phaser, Boss DD3 Digital Delay & MXR Zak Wylde Overdrive

Dude, maybe you should get rid of the damn guitar and learn to play the triangle. They used one in Killer Queen and you never have to tune it.

Squeaky strings are generally caused by prolonged contact with the sweaty purulent hands of pubescent acne-ridden imbecilic males.

They can, if not treated quickly enough, induce wood-rot in the fretboard of your electric guitar, rendering it wholly unplayable within a matter of days.

You'll probably be alright Johnny if you nip down to your local garage and buy a few litres of engine oil, Castrol GTX being particularly effective, and soak the whole neck of your guitar in the oil for 3-5 days.

But time is of the essence!

Actually Brenski I think the triangle used was an exact copy of the original one used on Killer Queen. I think they called it the Silver Special. I hear Fender may mass produce the triangle that way EVERYBODY can play Queen songs and reproduce that distinctive sound.
