Re: Orange Drops versus Mallory 150's
I have a 5E3 built with orange drops. Sounds fantastic to me, but I doubt I could tell the difference between 150's and orange drops in a blind test. I would say that the orange drops would be closer to the original astrons used in tweed amps as far as construction goes. They are both foil/film construction I believe, vs the 150's which are metalized film. Am I correct on this?...M
