    Sounds pretty decent. I'd do another sound test with flange to see how it compares to the original recording too.

    The pre Rola greenback sounds closest to my ears. Has a nice warm, but bright sparkle and attack with defined mids and tight lows. Matches the original recording well.

    The EVH Greenback is very close to the pre Rola, but brighter, louder and harsher.

    The M75 is a little muddy without the high end sparkle and tightness in the mids.

    The BM75 is too dark and muddy. None of the bright attack that the greenback gives.

    EVH Greenback sounds the best to me... sounds closest to the EVH tone sample that follows. Great.

    pre Rola greenback is a close second.

    Neither 75 does it at all.

    Pre rola sounds perfect. Others all seem to bite too much, losing the brown (round) sound. My opinion of course.

    Pre-rola sounded the best and had the right kind of bite. The EVH greenback was close. The other two sounded flubby.
