Andy Highfield commented on Marcy Marxer "Iona Martin"'s group Gear
"Yes. Excellent. We actually use a pair of Fishman SA220's (SoloAmps) for 90% of our gigs these days, though. Similar circuits. Excellent dispersion, plenty of power (2 X 220w), nicely portable (back saver!) and in addition to the 4 mic/DI…"

Andy Highfield replied to Lane Rudiger's discussion OM guitars and flatpicking?

Andy Highfield replied to Vinny Baker's discussion Best Acoustic pick-up /Pre amp system
"I think one issue is that there are so many different guitar + PU + Pre + PA combinations involved, so what works for one, may be poor on another. For example, a light fingerstyle player using a guitar with a cedar top is going to get very different…"

Andy Highfield replied to Vinny Baker's discussion Best Acoustic pick-up /Pre amp system
"I had two separate guitars with K&K's in and was not happy with either (a D-18GE and a D16). They were both used via a Baggs Para DI (which is a nice box of itself). To date, the best results I have had have been with UST pickups via…"

Andy Highfield replied to Todd McFarland's discussion What brand do you play?
"1950 D28 - unusual example with Englemann top 1945 D-18 (Kenny Smith really liked this one when he tried it) 1939 D-18 (one of the last 1 3/4 neck examples) and.. my main performing guitar these days, Prototype no. 2 of the Breedlove Roots D/SHR.…"
