Sounds of the Jem7dbk
In my definition, especially as a Les Paul player, warmness of tone is as follows (bear with me, describing difference in sound is slightly subjective): *
warmth: *slightly lower output, more mid-range and bass, more "even" sound, with lower peaks in prominence of frequencies....more balance.....smoothness of sound, less "jagged" or "grating" of a tone, organic sounding, think 70's rock, or B.B. King, for good reference, or for that matter, any blues master (as well as Steve's tone in FTLOG), less harmonic overtone (in my opinion)....something your parents MIGHT feel comfortable listening to, in some cases...;-)
non-warmth (for lack of a better word): *high-output, high treble definition, less midrange, more "harsh" or "abrasive" sound, more feedback/squealing, more "metallic" or "mechanic" sounding, more "cut"....think 80's metal and "butt-rock".....less soothing sound, think of Steve's tone in the last "movement" of the Fire Garden Suite
Hope my long-winded explanation and opinions help!
