The Great Grado Experiment (4 tonewoods tested, more to come!) - Page 8

Phase 2 of the Experiment: LAMINATES!  Walnut for the highs, Cherry for the mids and Maple for the lows.  : )

You laugh...I think I saw something along those lines by lostMIDrange a long time ago...they were Limba cups with a darker wood on the end...he made a few pairs, and I saw them hit the classifieds a twice, then they were gone...

Finally finished with the cherry cups... moving on to the maples today! (the plan is to live with one cup with my o2/ODAC for a minimum of 10 hours... with a 10 song playlist I've constructed of songs I normally use to evaluate tubes... my review should be done just before Christmas... probably posted after the holiday though.

Great, don't let the other reviews sway you.

 

I do think you should throw in those Ebony cups as these cups should make their way back to me and they would make a great Christmas present.  :smile:

I am personally loving what African Blackwood did to my SR80 pinks...I was worried about using a harder wood, but it seemed to stabilize and clean up their sound more than anything else...plus it just looks dead sexy biggrin.gif

I thought I'd share a bit of blast from the past with all of you.  We did something a bit similar about 2 years ago where some of us members were sharing our impressions of various woods with our cups at the time.  I performed about 4 reviews and shared pictures in that thread to include a $595 pair of Marty's creations that I was able to try for a few weeks and provide some impressions on.

 

Here's the thread. http://www.head-fi.org/t/558621/woodied-grado-review-and-impressions-thread

 

 

Enjoy!

@WJE, I'll add that to the front page tomorrow hopefully!

@7keys, so KVTaco is the last to receive this batch of cups? I thought these cups were designed not to be used othe than for the rotation.

@KvTaco, glad to hear its coming along nicely!! Looking forward to your impressions.

I'm hoping that eventually they'll make there way back to me, after everyone who wants to test them has a turn and it sure would be nice if there was a nice ebony set in with the others. :wink:

I have a question: the drivers are attached using tape (dynamat?) to the cup, right? Doesn't the tape affect the wood natural resonances to some extend?
