Lives for gear

To MY ear, caps and resisters make a huge difference in everything I've tweaked. I've rebuilt most of my tube gear and guitar amps with metal film resisters and different formulations of caps, and have found the sounds to be more "Creamy" and "richer" in detail - also quieter.

Having said that, I know several people who have had the character erased from their favorite gear by "cleaning up" components.

When I worked for John Hardy, we had some fun conversations about component formulations, thermal properties, etc.

God! I'm such a nerd!
