Make no mistake like that other pompous guy on this thread, I know my taste in music is no longer main stream.
Funny you should mention reeds and their waveform as they are my least favorite pipes in the organ. They can (not all) have a buzz to them. A free reed clarinet is as smooth as velvet.
You are correct in that my ears prefer a rounded sinusoidal wave form so typical of many acoustic instruments.
Regarding Rock & Roll, it did exist before the electric guitar and I loved it. It lost me with heavy metal and the wailing of something akin to a tuned dentist drill and the obnoxious Wall of Sound.
Mediocrity has succeeded big time in so many fields of endeavor.
Popularity does not always equal high quality. EG: McDonalds, Microsoft, RAP...
Anyway enough thread drift. Cheers.
You chime in repeatedly on a thread discussing the passing of Jim Marshall to compare the sound of overdriven guitars to dentist drills and that you prefer pipe organs. Yet I'm the one who's pompous?
Thanks for sharing.
