Plate choice: Aluminum vs. FR4


This is with Durock Lavender (F+L) switch.
I've ordered both aluminum and FR4 plates for Frog TLK and obviously I'll be using only one of them.
Which plate do you think complements Lavender on the Frog TKL better ?


Mounted on aluminium.  (I'm not sure if I'll be bothered to desolder for FR4 plate)
Feels and sounds nice.

Nice countertops. Specs?
