Never mind Tweed.
Burgundy has a warmer tone.
Ivory is too bright, I think
I get the brown sound ...
What about if it's Bicolor or even Tricolor Tolexing ?
I bet billy corgan could talk for hours about the tonal differences in tolex.
There's nothing more elegant sounding than a Black Face Fender.
Ok,now yur just showing off.
Depends on the weight of the dye used to color the grill cloth. I think the darker dyes weigh more, and are therefore more difficult to vibrate, and darken the sound. Not to mention the effect you get when bright stage lights shine on the grills. The darker grills will certainly absorb more of the light's energy as heat, and this creates a bit more warmth in the sound.
But then you have to take into account that the weave of the grill cloth has changed over time and obviously a denser weave, even if a lighter dye, is going to cut some highs.
I'd experiment with both and see which one suits your individual tastes. I've known people who run dual speaker cabinets and have half the grill in oxblood and half the grill in the beige. But that might be a bit extreme.
How was that for a pile of complete BS?
Brown western tolex has the most twang.
+1 on Burgundy, my Bordeux & Wheat DRRI is very svelte sounding.
