Godin Grand Concert SA

June 29, 2018

I have been using Godin Guitars on and off in the past but recently wanted a very solid robust traveling giging guitar that was not so fragile. I do over 150+gigs a year and sometime need to travel and play in areas that are not always safe for instruments.

I do have excellent Flamenco guitars by Luthier Lester Devoe & Andy Culpepper. however some gigs just won’t do by a mic alone or be safe. Ahh to the point. The Godin Grand Concert is just right when you need to amplify on stage w/o feedback and w/o lots of time to set up. I can get in and out for a wedding in 10min with a Pedalboard & Roland GR 55 or GR 20 guitar synth. So the transport and set up is very easy. When I set up I generally use a wireless system to run the RMC pickups to a Fishman Aura 16 (Godin Multiac SA Image”s) then to a Grace AliX for fine eq, Boss RV-500 for Reverb, Digitech Jam Man for Looper and out to a QSC TouchMix 8 Mixer or straight to EV

Evolve 50 or 2 Bose S1 Pro”s. That”s the set up.

The tone is wonderful. Once you understand how to use the onboard eq treble, mid, bass (cut, flat or bost) you dial in your tone and your pretty good to go. Add the Fishman Aura if you want the mic air in your sound. Playability is just fun/ effortless and feels great. It”s very fast on the fretboard. I was not sure if I would like the radius or Richlite fretboard but I really like both. I do use just the RMC pickup signal out and walk around wirelessly and come back to my area and will hook up the 13pin Roland cable to hook up to the GR Synth. The guitar tracks very well and I have played live with no glitches. I”ve played a few gigs out on only the Godin even though I had a back up. I”m really enjoying the new Godin Grand Concert SA. Bottom line is my clients and I like the sound of this guitar and they rehire me and bring me back for future events. It is worth getting a wider and padded strap if you play more than a few minutes.

Ultra Portable and Battery Powered Rig.

May 15, 2018

I have for a long time wanted to be able to have a very easy and portable rig that sounds fantastic. It would be able to accommodate using a mixer as well as my DPA 4099G microphone. For me to be able to play outdoor weddings or outdoor events with an easy set up and no need for AC is a must. I’m so glad that this year Bose came out with the S1 Pro. I i’ve been using the S1pro for the last six months with no issues and I’m very happy with it (them I have 2) however to play things in stereo I needed a mixer and I’m glad that Behringer has a battery powered stereo mixer with phantom power. The Behringer Xenyx 1002B. The mixer when using phantom power needs 3 9 V batteries but if you’re only running the mixer without phantom power 2 9 V batteries. And then using my DPA 4099 microphone I use the Sennheiser G3 wireless we’re both the transmitter and receiver run on two AA batteries. All my batteries are rechargeable from batteries on the Bose to the batteries on the Behringer and the Sennheiser wireless system for my paddleboard I have a pedal train volto 2 battery that powers my LR bags Align Series EQ, Reverb, DI, TC Electronic Spark Booster & Looper & Line 6G30 Wireless.

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.
