With a new Ibanez signature model and an ultraportable plug-and-play rig, the rock heroine travels light to create the heavy tones on her new solo debut, Controlled Chaos.

Unlike her gig with Alice Cooper, where the stage is packed with amps and cabs, Strauss travels light on her own. A Boss GT-1000, which rests on the floor stompbox style, providing all the amp modeling and effects she needs. She’s got four core tone variations—which she displays on our rundown—set up for clean, rhythm, lead, and effects lead sounds. She says the GT-1000’s gotten the job done everywhere from small stages to stadiums. The other piece of mojo is a Shure GLX-D wireless.
