More mic please (in LR Baggs Dual Source) 

July 3, 2016

If you have the LR Baggs Dual Source and your pickup UST is hotter than the mic try bringing the gain down. I moved the pickup gain switch to (low gain) and now I have a stronger mic signal in my mono out. The Grace Design AliX tames the low so no feedback and just a bit of boost on treble and my guitar the JDZ Negra sounds like the guitar just louder with no piezo pickup tone.

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. 

Pedalboard Update 10/18/15

So the last few months I’ve redone my live setup to accommodate a few systems.  I like to use a mic but when I can’t I need to use a pick-up I now use 4 different ones depending on the gig and need.  On my Zofia I have the LR Baggs Dual Source, on DeVoe Negra the Kromona NG-1 and DPA4099, DeVoe Blanca RMC w Poly Drive II, and on Cordoba F7 Paco the Fishman Presus Blend.  All of thes go into the Grace Felix.  The Zofia and F7 Paco at times are used with the Line 6 G30 Wirless.  So the effects loop is a Nenunaber Wet v.2 to DigiTech Jam Man to BBE Sonic Stomp back to Felix.   I should be adding delay in the near future as well. This set up allows me to play with any of my guitars and sound great.   It’s all mounted on the Pedaltrain FLY.   From the board I either go to my QSC TouchMix8 w QSC K10’s  or Bose L1 Compact
