Indeed, Stokowski's first acousticals actually DO have audible bass fiddles, 
but they couldn't be heard at the time, so subsequent orchestral recordings 
omitted them, even into the first electricals. And think of all the chopped 
endings on early electrics where the decay or a final "plunk" was still in 
effect but the engineer had whipped the cutter into runout mode.
