Cadenzas: Auer-Heifetz; Joachim-Heifetz

Guild Excellent. Tonal balance similar to GS but with more clarity and without the reverb.

Naxos also excellent but with much different tonal balance. Fuller low end but with filtered high end that removes Heifetz shrill edge (which may not be a bad thing).

GS Reverb and some coloration.

FM Filtered high end with some distortion at times.
