dunno, hollow, less solid. Guitar & bass suffer the same distance, of course,
but it tends to be less obvious due to their volume both from the stage and
from the PA. The difference is there, it's just not as obvious.

Best I can explain it, I think. I think once you hear that difference enough
(especially when you can be certain of the source), you can usually
determine which is which.
Thanks for explaining! :-)
