AS177 - I love you - Cole Porter - Amp Comparison Pèche à la Mouche PM6 Vs Fender Princeton Reverb

Hey guys, today we'll compare the results of the nice P90 pickup from that 1958 Gibson Es-125 into the Swiss made Pêche à la Mouche amp (model PM6) and our trusty 1969 Fender Princeton Reverb "drip edge". The EQ is flat on the Fender, but the controls of the PM6 are only volume and tonality so i had the tonality on 2 to avoid the cracking (these amps are made in the style of the famous Stimer amps that Django Reinhardt played in the 40s and early 50s, which were naturally crunching with the big attack and high volume).

Please share your thoughts, it seams to me that paradoxally the PM6 seams to developpe more bass response and has maybe a little more attack, whereas the Fender is a little brighter and has more definition.

The guitar is strung with D'Addario nickel roundwound strings and the sound is captured by a Neumann TLM 103. The Fender has its own reverb, but i've add a little post prod reverb on the PM6 that doesn't have any.
