For best audio-quality, please make sure to set the video to High-Def... and play through decent stereo speakers.
I eliminated as many variables as possible for the most scientific comparison... within reason. That said, the best way to hear the differences between the tubes & pickups is by utilizing the time-stamp links above. Hopefully some of you found these comparisons at least somewhat helpful. If so, please throw me a "like". And, if hearing the same riffs over & over & over is making you numb, just imagine how many times I had to hear this while editing... it. haunts. my. dreams.
[For all the uber audio-nerds...]
-The amp settings remained UNTOUCHED during the ENTIRE recording process
-The microphone positions remained UNTOUCHED during the ENTIRE recording process
-The signal-chain went DIRECTLY from the re-amp box into my Mesa Boogie Dual-Rectifier Multi-Watt
-There were NO plugins & NO EQ used
-ALL the preamp-tubes are a brand-new MATCHED set of Tung-Sol 12ax7's
