Love these kind of stories



Now, I am no musician it has to be said.

But I've read and seen so many example of similar, if you must I'll try and dig some examples out

But let's go for the as it stands unverified.

There have been loads of examples, when wine "connesioures" cannot tell anything apart on a blind tasting, some have been unable to tell white wine from red.

Don't think anyone can tell a fresh non organic veg from an organic one.

Blind tastings couldn't tell one type of reared animal from which.

Now, I honestly don't know about musical instruments, but it does smack of possible rubbish.

Make any half - decent golfer use a club or ball different to their usual, and see how they get on.
I can totally believe that a decent musician would be well below par, if made to use an instrument other than their own.
I get it. I can work with other peoples tools. And never can I work out of someone else's van. Not taking the p¡ss.
It could be the same idiocy that leads people to think that silver speaker wire sounds better than copper, or it could be a real difference in sound.

But people get attached to things, even if they're just another car punched out of a massive factory that produces hundreds of thousands a year.

Not to mention that if you're carrying around a million pound violin then travel probably gets quite stressful.

and the best of knobs, the "Silver Rock Signature Knob"


Silver Rock Signature Knob
Price: $485.00

Good vibrations, Bad vibrations it’s all about vibrations!! RAM would like to introduce a new signature level knob developed for the mighty Silver Rock potentiometer. The standard bakelite knob is certainly the best sounding compromise... but now Audio Consulting has taken this aspect of the Silver Rock much further. The new knobs are custom made with beech wood and bronze where the bronze is used as the insert to mount to the stem of the volume pot. The beech wood is coated several times with C37 lacquer for best sound as pointed out by Dieter Ennemoser. How can this make a difference??? Well, hearing is believing as we always say. The sound becomes much more open and free flowing with a nice improvement in resolution. Dynamics are better and overall naturalness is improved. Here is a test for all you Silver Rock owners. Try removing the bakelite knobs and listen. You will be shocked by this! The signature knobs will have an even greater effect…really amazing! The point here is the micro vibrations created by the volume pots and knobs find their way into the delicate signal path and cause degradation (Bad vibrations equal bad sound). With the signature knobs micro vibrations from the C37 concept of wood, bronze and the lacquer itself compensate for the volume pots and provide (Good Vibrations) our ear/brain combination like to hear…way better sound!!Knobs can easily be installed on all versions of the Silver Rock potentiometer.

Very much the publicity that the ( now defunct ? ) manufacturer wrote.

When I was in engineering I could tell if someone handed me one of my spanners or one of theirs, even if they were the same brand.
Mind you, I think because mine were over 20 years old and someone else's were usually less than 5 I could just feel the difference.
One bloke 'blind tested' me one day on a complete set of spanners ranging from 6mm up to 32 mm I got them all correct with the exception of my 28mm which I very rarely used.
