L.R Baggs Venue DI

October 11, 2018

I have been so happy with my Córdoba 45FP guitar that has the L.R. Baggs Lyric Classical Tru-Mic installed. I am also using the L.R. Baggs Venue DI to eq the system. I have put this all into full time gig rotation now. I don’t leave the house without it.

After a few gigs with the L.R. Baggs Venue I decidedly was time to have it on a Pedaltrain Metro 24 Board. I am able to go direct to a powered speaker of mixer with this system.

The board is a Line 6 G30 Receiver to the L.R. Baggs Venue DI, Boss RV-500, Digitech Jam Man Stereo, BBE Sonic Stomp back to L.R. Baggs Venue then out via XLR.

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.

Boss RV 500

October 10, 2017

Absolutely one of the best sounding pedal Reverb’s I’ve used to date. I’ve used Strymon, Neunaber, TC Electronic, Electro Harmonix and a few others. The Plate & Hall Reverb are fantastic on nylon strings. Lots of tweeking possibilities. The ability to pull off my pedal-board and use with batteries is s plus for my use. Many of the good reverb pedals on the market don’t have this option. 32bit 96k sampling is an industry high. I’m liking it so far.
