For 2019 Gear to be used.

December 6, 2018

Ez set up 1000w QSC CP8 & TouchMix 8 and it Bose TM4, Sennheiser G3 Wireless, DPA 4099G, and Culpepper w Dogal strings. And AudioTechnica Wireless. My personal preference was with QSC TouchMix8 for eq. The eq is very easy to program and get great sound. This will be the system I start using for restaurant gigs this 2019 and for a few other projects with other musicians. We’re trying to just Mic our instruments. I’ll be using QSC and EV for most gigs in 2019 and Bose S1Pros for outdoor weddings.

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.

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.

I’m enjoying my initial experience with the Sennheiser XSW2 System with my DPA 4099G to a Radial Engineering Voco Loco Preamp.

October 27, 2017

This is a fantastic mic for my Andy Culpepper Blanca and Lester DeVoe Negra.  I use the Radial Engineering Voco-Loco Preamp with a Kokko Space Reverb. All this goes to a mixer  (FOH) or powered speaker.  I get great results when I use this system and it brings out my true Guitar tone.

Sennheiser ew D1 Digitial wireless with DPA 4099

January 27, 2017

Trying out the updated Sennheiser ew D1 Digital Wirless system with a DPA 4099G mic. Looking forward to using it for solo guitar gigs with the DPA Mic.

*Update* 2/7/17. I have updated the firmware so the system works with my iPhone using a apple airport (wifi) I have giged 3 times with this set up at a Cafe and Winery with no problems.  I really like the ease of use and tone quality.  While you can’t turn up the system the way you can with a UST pickup you can amplify your guitar to levels that a large audience can hear without feedback.  For me it’s part of a solution.  I do have my guitar plugged into a pickup system if needed but I start off with the DPA only.  I add the pickup as the performance gets going and if more volume is needed.

DPA 4099G w Grace Design AliX

January 24, 2017

Thank you Eben Grace for letting me know you can use the DPA micro dot cable and cut one end and solder a tip sleeve 1/4 jack and plug into AliX with 12v. It’s sounding great and at 10ft away I can have 92bd w no feedback out of a Bose L1 Compact. (cable and a jack pictures Eben Grace) 

DPA 4099 G 

September 11, 2016

I have liked the DPA 4099 G microphone since it came out a few years ago.  The newer model has the cable (micro-dot) terminate and connect at the end of the goose-neck.  There’s also an additional extension available to further comstomize your mic placement.  I have used it so far with a Digidesign 002 Rack and a Bose ToneMatch mixer with great results on both.  The sound clip is direct to the Digidesign 002 Rack no eq or compression just a bit of hall reverb.  The mic sounds great and I thoroughly enjoyed playing with it through the Bose L1 compact.  DPA 4099 Mic Demo  (Just click and you can hear the mic)

Gig Rig JDZ & Pedal Board

November 9, 2015

  
Updated “Gig Rig” all starts with a custom hand made Flamenco Cedar Blanca made by Jorge de Zofia of Palm Beach FL. I use D’Addarío EJ45 or EJ45C and EJ25C.  It’s outfitted with a L.R. Baggs Dual Souce Pickup System (Element & Mic) to a Line 6 Relay 30.  Then it’s all Eq’ed in the Grace Designs FELIX preamp.  (At times I also use the DPA 4099 G mic) on all my guitars. In the effects loop I have a Strymon Big Sky, to a DigiTech Jam Man Solo XT with a FS3X foot switch, to a BBE Sonic Stomp back to Felix. The pedals are mounted to the Pedaltrain Fly board.  I use the Bose L1 Compact or QSC TouchMix 8 and QSC K10’s. 

Grace Designs Felix “Tames RMC Gold & Poly-Drive II”

July 12, 2015

I think I’ve rekindled my affection towards my DeVoe Blanca with RMC-Pickups & Poly-Drive II, DPA-4099G, and Grace Designs Felix PreAmp. The Grace Designs Felix Preamp was able to tame some of the piezo quack that drove me nuts and with the DPA blended in I can get very natural tone and loud without feedback.
