Best reply.

Quack and Spank from a Strat comes from playing staccato in the neck position hitting the strings hard and fast to get some good transients going while cranking the amp up very loud and clean. You can't get any quack playing quietly because the quack comes from the speakers pushing lots of power. How loud do you play your amp? I'm surprised your current Strat and Super Reverb doesn't do that for you.

And always wear earplugs under cranked conditions. I'm sure you're a smart guy and know this already. I only only mention it because I was one of the dumb ones years ago and now my ears ring.

cool, I'd like to hear more, let us know.

Was that an old/new song? It'd be interesting to hear about your process/gear used.

Your have the right guitar and amp, all you need is an envelope filter.
