Any significant difference between these tones? (clip)

Same licks, in order from clean/neck pup to clean bridge pup to dirty neck & dirty bridge: one sample panned left and the other panned right:

Any Difference?

Other than the panning, any appreciable differences jump out? :dunno

There is, although I'm having trouble finding the words to describe it. The second of each pair is slightly more defined, tighter?, not exactly compressed - maybe buffered? The second would likely sit better in a mix to my ears.

Well, it's a bit academic, since both sides were recorded direct & not mic'd up properly. But one side is my Shiva without anything in the fx loop, and the other side is the Shiva with the special level-reducing cable from Bogner running into my pedalboard and then back into the Shiva's amp-boost circuit. I wanted to see how drastic a difference in tone there was from using the cable with resistors in it and the amp-boost with its op-amp, vs. not using the loop at all.

Thanks, mang. I think I'm hearing the same things you're hearing -- thanks for the confirmation. :aok
