From the man who commissioned it. Beautifully played.

Beautiful string sound for 1942 on LM. Get a better copy of this!

GS EQ to +6 0 -6 -8 -8 -4 +4 +8 +6.

Pearl overly heavy in bass and upper end filtered. However when set to

0 -8 -12 -10 -6 -4 0 +5 +10 +15 sound is OK.

Symposium slightly worse sound than GS. Sort of tubby.
