    Which one is the TUBE amp ? blind test ..

    Post by Bob Latino on Fri Aug 04, 2017 7:54 am



    At the video above is a test of a two guitar amps. One is a solid state amp and one is a tube amp. Can you tell which is which ? OK - they are not AUDIO amps but you should be able to sense the difference in tone between the two amps. There are a number of other videos on Youtube that do the same thing. At the end of the video they do not tell you which is which. In a subsequent video, the presenter of this video does tell which is the tube amp.

    Tube watts are bigger and fatter. I could tell right away, even listening through my s/s PAT4 and Bedini amp Smile

    I guessed correctly... I could hear a difference in the mids and chime of the upper three strings when he plays up the neck.
