What do you think ?
If you do think there's a difference, what type do you prefer ?
Some interesting and questionable claims in this article:
I especially like this: " If you want to use the vintage caps, make sure that you use vintage cloth wire inside your guitar and the Gibson fifties vintage wiring, otherwise you will not fully experience the tones from these caps."
So you don't get the proper effect from the cap unless you connect it with old wire ?
When people start making claims like this "tends to pronounce the mid frequencies a bit", I really have to question it.
Frequency response is easily checked and I bet no cap will show a difference.
Greg_G started a thread 10 days ago, which can be viewed in it's entirety HERE.
This is the development thread for the actual test.
If you would like to participate in the procurement of the parts, or if you would like to help fund the project, or if you would like an opportunity to actually play the test pedal, this is the thread to sign up!!
I have volunteered to assemble the pedal.
The basic outline of the test was agreed upon in the original thread, however, your input is always welcome.
Who wants to play??
