I use a Strymon Big Sky reverb pedal for summing of my two analog signal chains. Important is to activate the Strymon's "amp sim" algorithm. This is a true stereo effect so the direct signal of the melody and the direct signal of the bass side go hard panned, so if you plan to spread a wid...

Where I live, I'm playing out in the public streets and home concerts at institutions where people might behave in an utterly noisy way, so I have grown used to adjust pitch while playing. In the morning, when I leave, I tune up with my 440 Hz fork and it rarely happens to me that more than one stri...

I prefer the active sound but the passive feel. Kind of my taste as well! :-) I try to achieve such a tone by playing the PASV4 neck PUPs with filters set to the thinnest sound. Even by Jaap´s excellent mp3 round-trip I'm finding my ears mostly drawn to the PAV4 neck, but as said, I'l like it a lit...

wenge on wenge, stained ebony-black. Good choice! I too would like one of those :-) Will make a beautiful and gorgeous sounding NS. And I wish Chrispfingers a not too depressing waiting time. Myself, I faced nine months on my first Stick (12-str Grand) and changed my preferences, regarding color of...

I would go with the SG12 because of the twelve strings, compared to the alto's ten. This gives you a wider playground. Don't think the SG12 is a shorter version of a Grand. It is a very different instrument. I play both models and look at the SG12 as one instrument, like for example the harp, and th...

Media composing for production music libraries (using also, el cello, alto flute, tenor sax and all kind of guitars). Web mastering for a few clients. A few guest lecturer as classes now and then, but since I haven't put out a new book in six years now this is a fading work sector. Another dying wor...

´Congrats, Luc! So you're getting free drum sticks from the company now? Awesome! :-) I'd really like that regarding strings for my SG-12, it's a rather hefty cost and I love to have fresh strings with perfect tone and intonation. The only "endorsement" I have been lucky to pick up so far ...

I'm far from "a bass player" but have found my holy grail in little the Xotic SP compressor pedal. I have two of them and the on my melody side is set up with its dip switch to cut the lowest bass. This works as lovely "un-muddifyer" for the bass side, since the lowest bass side ...
