I have great results using a Collings D2H through an Aura and a stage monitor.Doesn't really matter what kind.I also use a Sure wireless system.The pickup in the guitar is a K&K mini western.

I have recently added equipment for my "solo career" . I play by myself in small places, so while the US $ was low I bought a K&K mini western and a LR Baggs Para DI. For our band PA I have a Laney CP12 floor monitor. Good thing with this monitor is that it can also work as a mini PA since it has 1 XLR mic input and 1 line input. So it is perfect for small solo gigs. I just bring the monitor, guitar, DI and mic. Since the LR Baggs Para DI has a volume knob, I can first set a good volume for vocals on the monitor and after that get a fitting volume for the guitar with the Para DI volume knob. The sound is very little colored with the monitor, I guess that is the purpose of a monitor, so this setup is perfect for me.

I've bought the Schertler Dyn-G and it's Pre II preamp;i haven't use them yet,but from what i read they give excellent results on acoustic guitar tone.Pretty $$ though!

Howdy, Mike B. Sorry to take so long to respond. I've been traveling. I'm currently in Florida. Ain't the Innernet wunnerful? I'm not much of a guitar amp guy. More of a PA guy.
The AER sounds like a great guitar amp, I would suggest that the Cub is more of a PA sound.

Yeowza! Just found a wonderfully geeky piece of gear today. It's a keyboard cover made for Pro Tools! It's fantastic! No more frustration switching from format to format and mixing up the shortcuts!
La la laaaa la happy happy girl!

Has anyone here tried the Planet Waves "O-Port"? Its a cone thing that fits into the sound hole, to apparently enhance the tone of an acoustic guitar. I wonder if it makes mush positive effect?

The new Fishman mini is a great little amp!  Has anybody else tried it?

Comment by Andy Highfield on April 7, 2012 at 8:23pm

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 inputs you can add extra inputs from small mixer via the Aux in. Very flexible and certainly has that real Fishman clarity and honesty to a true acoustic sound. We have used a single one for audiences of up to around 200, and covered over 400 with a pair.

Sounds interesting, I will check it out,

thanks

Hello Gear Geezers!

The new Fishman amps are GREAT!  The Mini flies in my suitcase-a Samsonite Winfield!  Like the name??  The Mini, suitcase and clothes combined weigh in at about 37 lbs.  The Artist goes by car.
Anybody ready to update us on gear finds?

Norman's Preferences

I saw a video in which Norman discussed why he preferred a certain fret when refretting one of his Martin's. I am about to refret my D-35 Martin, and I would like to know if anyone remembers a video in which Norman discusses his choice over the Frets Martin uses. Thank You.7See More
