That references ancient threads on the board and shows an experimental mule I just bought on a lark and for a song.
Son-o generated some samples of the sound of this beast and I find the experiment interesting. The pups are stock cheapo, probably ceramic, no name Asians that sound surprisingly musical, unlike what I typically find in these types of OEM cheapos.
The chassis has a very stable tone generation. It's diminished string vibration dissipation is especially noticeable in the low E and A.
Son'o had some time last week and recorded a few samples and the Duane Eddie types demonstrate the bass effect I describe. I asked him to post but he is a little under the weather.... so I am posting his samples. He would put in some disclaimer about being done fast, blah blah blah... I know he wanted to do some more over the top types and the in-line recording (not miked) has a little electronic artifacts, but good enough for a test.
Duane Eddie style - rhythm track record with same setting as lead, e.g., mid rhythm/mid lead.
Thanks Son-o! aka, MudCat. I guess I should claim that the blues shuffle was recorded not by MudCat, but by Muddy Sea... (mud-C). (Muddy Waters would not approve Ali Acrylic since it is not a tele. Dillion makes these things in a Tele, but my anti-Tele bias has not abated and I could not bring myself to getting a plexiTele.)
2012 closing down fast.
