The best way to describe a Steel String Singer is as an extremely adjustable single channel clean amplifier with reverb. The sound the Steel String Singer is most known for is a "clean feedback" effect, where the amplifier will feedback, even though the signal is audibly clean.
SSS has special high and low cut filters that adjust the overall tone late in the circuit. It's sound is often characterized as an extremely clean and compressed signal with dynamic response and a lush reverb circuit. There are reportedly "higher highs" and "lower lows" that are not often heard through other amplifiers, and a significant amount of harmonic response to the strength of the input signal.
It's an amplifier that is clean sounding and yet is able to produce a great big sound.
The amp gives an incredibly low end punch and enormous amount of headroom. The reverb is other-worldly, as is the rich second-order harmonic content (it's not really "distortion") the circuit produces gives the amp a special vibe. It is absolutely wonderful sounding, both by itself and with almost any pedal you put in front of it.
The Secret Weapon of the SSS amps are the High and Low step filters, which can be used to dial a wide range of tones. Each filter has six setting. They work in conjunction with the normal tone controls to create a very broad pallet of sonic options. The Bass Filter is very useful for adding a big fat low end to a Strat. Once you set the step filter you can fine tune the low end with the standard Bass tone control. With the High filter you can go from mild to wild glassy top end on your tone, and again fine tune the color with the treble and mid tone controls.
