I was a little surprised to when I saw it. I know one thing, one of the new songs added "Shadow Of Your Love" sounded pretty darn good remastered. The old original demo of it sounded like crap.

This is probably #36 or #39 Slash is using here if it is from the original sessions. He could of recently redid his parts too. I read not too long ago where Richard Fortus said they were in the studio recording "some of Slash's old material."

Sounds good,. part of me wonders if the rhythm is Izzy's boogie though. It's got more that tone to it than the marshall tone.
Solo sounds like marshall.

Could be the mix.

So I've figured out where the harsh highs were coming from and managed to fix them. A lot of it was the Sozo NexGen caps. They have a nice clear tone, but there is a more pronounced, complex sounding, treble. I've since changed them all out for TAD mustards which have a similar sound, but the complex tones are shifted to the mids. The other source of pronounced highs were the cathode bypass caps that were rated higher than needed. I've dropped them back to a 100v dc rating and the treble has evened out. I had to make a few adjustments to bring back the clarity as well. I changed the PI fizz cap to a 2kV N750 ceramic which helped stabilise the treble too.

I've also been playing around with electrolytic caps and voltage ratings for the 1st stage cathode. Currently I'm using a 1uF 70V Mundorf ECap AC PLAIN.
