Yep, you find this to be true of any youtube A/B comparisons. When you can SEE the guitar or pickup or amp or pedal or whatever they are playing, almost EVERYONE picks the name brand or the higher end one. When they do a blind test and don't tell you what they played for a week or two, the early replies are all over the place. After they post what they played however, it goes right back to the name brand having more "fullness" or more "Clarity" or a "tighter bottom end". It is amazing how that happens.
