Pedaltrain Metro 20 Soft Case Backpack

November 27, 2017

I’ve decided to keep my main Pedaltrain pedalboard the Metro 20 but updated to the new soft case with two additional top pockets and Backpack straps to carry the case. The handles are nicely done and placed in good locations. The zippers are better as well as the padding and material used for the case.

So after trying various strings for about six months on the Andy Culpepper #83 Spruce Blanca I’ve decided on Medium Tension strings from DAddario the EJ45, EXP45, EJ45C (Only Coffee Colored G String) and EJ49 or EJ50 Black trebles. My preferred choice is the EJ45 with the Composite G.

Sennheiser ew 100p G3 Wirelessly

November 27, 2017

So I’ve tried a few wireless systems out from Sennheiser, Shure, and Line 6. I’ve decided for my purpose which is to be used with the DPA 4099g mic on flamenco guitar I like the Sennheiser ew 100p G3 best. The ease of use TONE and options make it my solution. It so easy to use just turn them on, use a YPA or DPA Sennheiser micro dot adapter to the DPA and plug it in to the transmitter. On the receiver end you can just run it to a XLR input. I use my Bose L1 ToneMatch or a Radial Voco Loco preamp. My DPA and Sennheiser System fit into a nice small case from SKG. To hear the DPA direct and then using the Sennheiser click this link Sennheiser ew100 G3 DPA4099g

Wireless Set up for Flamenco Guitar

November 8, 2017

I just completed my wireless set up for my Andy Culpepper Flamenco Blanca using DPA 4099g Mic with a YPA Sennheiser adapter to the Sennheiser EWD1 Transmitter to the Sennheiser ewD1 Digital Receiver. It then goes to a Radial Engineering Voco-Loco Preamp with eq and effects loop including KoKKoSpace Reverb and DigiTech Jam Man SoloXT looper .  I used the Boss Pedalboard Cable Kit 6 Connectors purchased from Prymaxevintage in NJ eBay too or Prymaxe. Cory F and Steve were great. They have great service.  It all now looks and sounds great to the Bose L1, or speakers.
