Just for fun...I did have a pair of late 50’s P90s purchased from Wellington a decade ago. They sat in an R4 that I sold. I still know who has it and can ask.

And as an aside I still have the cream covers if you find a need.

How’d they sound in the R4? Better than modern aftermarket?

Not a huge difference. They were hotter which I liked but one can order that now from say Throbak or others. So not the mega tone hunt vibe one might have with PAFs for instance.
