Sabbath Paranoid low treble

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

50 YO here that jumped back on the vinyl bandwagon, after jumping on that shiny CD one in the 80’s ( it looked like a Toyota Starion).

I have an Australian vertigo pressing of Paranoid that I bought on “that auction site”.

Playing it, there seems to be a lack of treble. On both my Yamaha CA-610 and CA-1000, I have to turn up the treble to max before it seems to sound right. Then it sounds good. Note that there is little noise.

this is plating on a Technics SL-1700 with an AT95e using a Jico hyper elliptical stylus.

For all other records, I leave the treble bypassed.

 

Is this an indication that the record is worn out, or is it this pressing ?

I find most Sabbath records lack treble...  it's just how they sound

I have 2x copies of the Aussie vertigo pressing. Is yours the later laminated cover or the original matte cover.

Cartridge loading settings (resistance for MC and capacitance for MM) make a big difference to the high frequencies of vinyl playback and/or alignment so id start with making sure this is correct before casting aspersions on the format first. BTW excellent choice going back to vinyl 👍

For all other records, I bypass the tone settings. The CA-610 has 100pf capacitance by my reading of the schematic, which would be fine for the AT95E.  Not sure on the CA-1000, I may have a capacitance issue there, but it seems to cause the cart to be “peaky” at certain higher frequencies, if that makes sense.

I had a very similar issue, with a used copy of Pink Floyd's wish you were here.

Bought another copy, without the lacking treble. So it could be record wear?
