26 BuddyHollywood 1 week ago When we were putting the final touches on the 6186-GDP Clipper project, I had the great fortune of being able to sit down with Tim at the Nashville Roundup that year and try out most everything he had at the time in the Tru-Arc line, along with a custom Ebony bridge that Hyde at BlueBelly had made.We tried them all out back-to-back, through the same amp, only pausing long enough to loosen the strings, slide a new bridge in, retune and go.There were pretty huge and readily noticeable differences, and I really wish we'd recorded it. Just hugely noticeable.At the time, either NjBob or Bob Howard (one of the Bobs) had told me that Dynas like Stainless and Filters like Aluminum. That seems a bit counterintuitive, but I believe it's true, at least as a starting point.Of course, there are plenty of other flavors to try, too. I tried a stainless steel Serpentune first before settling on aluminum for my Dynasonic Duo Jet. I like the extra high mid chime the aluminum brings out. If Fender is on one end, Gretsch in the middle and Gibson on the other end of the tonal spectrum the aluminum leans my Duo Jet more towards the Fender side of the tonal spectrum.
