Planet Waves NS Capo for Classical Guitar

August 15, 2011

I ordered a Planet Waves Capo for my guitars tonight after reading some favorable reviews. I’ve read that Ned Steinberger helped design this capo.

Update 8.18.11 The capo arrived from the online retailer 123Music. This is absolutely the best capo that I have used and is very easy to set up and use. I really like the ease of one hand use and that you can adjust the tension that is used on the strings and neck.

It employs a sleek, ultra-light design for fast and accurate one hand positioning on the guitar’s neck. Just turn the smooth, tactile dial to eliminate the string buzzing and enjoy perfect, in-tune performance. Lightweight aluminum adds virtually no weight to the guitar’s neck when in use.

D’Addario EJ45C & Titanium t2 Trebles

August 11, 2011

Just went back to the D’Addario EJ45C on Bass Strings and Titanium t2 Trebles on the DeVoe Blanca. I did like the LaBella strings however after a week and half of use the bass strings started to fray and on the D/4th string unwound to the core. They did sound good and felt good thought out the duration on use. They were very balanced on bass and treble and I found that the trebles were smooth and cut thought very well with rasgadios. I thought I would try out the T2 on trebles. I find that my fingers like the feel of the t2 and they are very smooth and have a nice bright/ mellow tone.

QSC K8 for Live Flamenco Guitar

August 7, 2011

I tried something new today. I hooked up a DPA 4099 G Mic to an Art Phantom II Power Supply then to the QSC K 8 Speaker Channel A with Mic Switched on and EQ Normal and Vocal Boost On. It sounded great with my DeVoe Blanca.
