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 ---------- If you have any questions, please ask in the comments below. Please throw me a "like" if this was at all helpful. Thanks for watching, have a righteous day.
