Hi everybody....

Could somebody please tell me which kind of LDR is the best sound selection (the more accurate close to the original).-
I first tried with a quartet of CLAIREX CdSe CL5P4 with a great results.
I tried SILONEX type 7 (NSL-7530) and works fine -not to much modulation than the first (CL5P4) but fine... (i don't know if it will work better with ldr right oriented to the lamp more close possible)
I tried too a type 4 SILONEX NSL-4510 (that kind of LDR seems to sound more 3D but it lacks some high frecuencies) like a filter.-

Somebody told me that VT33N2 from Perkin Elmer is a better option but I don't have it.-
Is there somebody who's maybe had try a Fuji & Co. MKY-7H49 LDR ???

I'm waiting your comments!
Kind regards,

DAVE
PS: sorry 4 my english

Yes, Sorry... where I write Type 4 NSL-4510 was wrong. I mean the same that you used.- Type 5 NSL-5540.- (more 3d sound but it filter some high frecuencies... so If you play the notes on the 1° and 2° string 12 frets to up, you almost hear nothing.

I dedicate my Replica UV files to my old friend Burt, who recently started to call himself DrVibe (previously called himself 'We'), and who is selling replica Univibe boards for $240.

Cheers mate [ Image ]

Is there somebody who finished a Replica that sounds like the video?
And if its right, what part number of LDR do you use?

I spend a lot of money in LDR and I'm still trying to find the most accurate as the original.
