Floyd Baseplate Materials

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I just tore apart my cheap floyd rose copy to clean of tobacco smoke and other junk. It has a diecast base to it with a rather low iron content (magnet test). I happen to have laying around a base plate made of stamped steel (like an a original) and it has all the same dimensions except that I'd have to drill and countersink the holes for the screws that hold the trem block on it slightly larger. What kind of tonal differences exist in these two and which is most recommended?
