50s vs 60s Studio Tribute Sonic Differences (vids)

Recommended Posts

Hadn't seen anyone else post clips comparing the two. I happen to have one of each right now so I thought I'd do some clips (mainly to help me decide if I want to put some Orange Drop Caps in the 60s). Thought you guys might be interested. Particularly those who had one but not the other.

 

FWIW I see the sonic benefits of both. 60s sound is a little less compressed when driven, but I think the 50s might sound a hair fuller when completely clean. It's all relative. Definitely prefer the 60s neck tho.

Thanks for that comparison.

Already dropped in some 0.22 Orange Drops in my 60s

but still don't know which value the ones in the 50s have

(they seem to be bigger then the ones I have so I guess they're 400v or so...???)

 

Can you check the value on those in your 50s ?

Thanks

(Think you've misread something...)

It did came with the lil' blue caps like everyone elses but I soldered in some Orange Drops myself (0.22 100v's).

 

I was only wondering which value the Orange Drops are that are to be found in the 50's 'cause that's

the only thing imo that makes the sound difference between a 50's and a 60's.

 

 

Anybody ?
