Pedalboard Update

August 15, 2014

Pedalboard update 8/27/14 the Pedaltrain Jr is now holding the pedals now just new cables and a nice Decibel 11 power stone to be added shortly.

Pedal Board is Complete, from the input from the guitar it’s the K&K Trinity Preamp, BBE Acoustimax from the FX Send on BBE 1. TC Electronic Spark, 2. NT Neunaber Wet, 3. Didgitech Jam Man Stereo, back to return send. And a TC Electronic PolyDrive Tuner that runs from jack on BBE. I will be mounting this all on a Pedaltrain JR and to power it all will use the Decibel Eleven Power Brick. Once all the stuff is hear I will hook up a power jack on the side as well as a XLR and TRS input on the side of the pedal board. I will be mounting some jacks on the side of the pedal board that will make it cleaner looking from the side and front as well as easier to hook up to whatever system I am using.

TC Electronic Poly Tuner Mini

August 15, 2014

I just picked up a TC Electronic Polytune Mini to complete my acoustic pedalboard. TC’s Polyphonic Tuner Just Got Smaller!
TC Electronic’s PolyTune Mini guitar tuner pedal packs many of the same great features found in their original PolyTune poly-chromatic tuning pedal into an even more compact and pedalboard-friendly format. Just plug in, stomp down, and strum – the PolyTune Mini makes tuning that easy! Its ultra-bright LED display lets you instantly check the tuning of all of your strings at once and adjust them with instant feedback. In poly-chromatic mode, the PolyTune Mini provides you with incredible +/-1 cent accuracy. If you need even tighter tuning, switch it over to monophonic tuning mode for a staggering +/-.5 cent accuracy. Any way you use it, the TC Electronic PolyTune Mini is an essential part of any guitar pedalboard.

Live Setup Update

August 11, 2014

For most of my playing where I don’t have to go too loud I will be using my JDZ Blanca with K&K Trinity Pickups, to the K&K Trinity Preamp, BBE Acoustimax (use the effects loop to connect to), TC Electronic Spark, NT Neunaber WET Reverb, DigiTech Stereo Looper out to Bose Tone Match Mixer and Bose L1S System. That’s it

K&K Trinity and Trinity Preamp System Set Up for Zofia Blanca

August 2, 2014

Just reset the gain and eq settings in my K&K Trinity Preamp. I have the pickup at 80% gain 85% treble flat mid cut 8:00 and bass flat mic at 50% gain treble flat, mid cut 9:00, bass 10:00. Into my Bose L1S with Tone Match preset 80Hz Highpass all eq on Bose is flat and no Q. No compression and just 35 hall reverb. I wish some one would make a two channel guitar preamp that has two 5 band eq with sweepable mids on both a Highpass filter, phantom power on 1 mic Chanel, phase, effects loop, aux in 1/8 for iPod (battery or 48v) phantom power and small engulf to clip on to a guitar strap. Headway EB2 came so close but only really one channel can be eq. I know you can assign it to both but I like to eq the bass on pickups differently than the mic or sensor in guitar. I’m very happy with my Zofia Cedar Blanca and working with Jorge was an absolute pleasure, if your in the area next Sunday I will playing this guitar at Unionville Winery in Ringos NJ as they release Foxy Lady.
