On an other board, in another time:
"I also have a Fat Goat HB/P90 on my bastardized f-hollowed V, which is made of God-knows what kind of wood and of how many pieces. That guitar sounded OK when I installed one Shlabotnik pup on it; it actually became alive, very soaring; but I ended up preferring the Fat Goat, which gives me a darker, more "barking" tone as well as more "CHANK" and (maybe) better dynamics when played clean."

My new (used) guitar, a 2017 Fender Duo Sonic in Surf Pearl, and the hardshell case that came with it. :yay: :!!!:

I know I've occasionally ranted about GC, but I would like to thank them for this deal.

Hotone Acoustic Simulator

the wah is for the main setup; the AS will be used mostly on the front-end auxiliary board to provide additional voices and textures for loops. it's surprisingly convincing...i watched a bunch of demos and it beat the Boss unit by miles. it's also waaaaay simpler than a piezo bridge and an acoustic guitar processor. but it's deeper than it looks; there are 7 or 8 different modes including a banjo mode that's kind of crap in isolation but makes an interesting faux Asian sound with additional processing, and multiband semi-parametric EQ, but you have to menu-dive to adjust the parameters.


does the hotone have a clean blend


thanks for the recommendation, scored a Omni AC for $90CAD sHipped on alibaba :thumb:

you absolutely have to edit the EQ on the individual models to bring it to life. if you have a looper, you could record 30 or 40 seconds of chords and fingerpicking and let it cycle around while you adjust the particular EQ band one noodge at a time. i wound up putting the Lead II in open D tuning and picking with one hand while adjusting the knob on the AC with my free hand. the LO band more or less controls the fundamental of the lowest two strings, MIDRANGE mainly affects the middle pair, HIGH does the top two strings, and PRESENCE lets you mess with the high frequencies which are more prominent in electric guitar than acoustic (picture the tone of an open E string on a Stratocaster, then compare to an open string on a flattop). as you vary the EQ band you can hear the loudness and balance of the two strings shift. the frequency increments don't make sense compared to actual pitch in Hz...there's no sensible reason why going from 80 to 100 Hz should change the low end of a guitar whose lowest note is above 100 Hz, but it does. the EQ is described as "semi-parametric," which i suspect means shelving that moves when the notated frequency shifts. once you've tweaked the models to your satisfaction and saved them as presets you'll want to adjust the volume level setting of your individual presets and more or less match the levels...some models, the Hummingbird and Grand Auditorium particularly, are WAY louder than the others even after extensive EQing. the low end is much easier to dial in than the treble because highs are so overaccentuated in the tone of the electric guitar. i still need to mess with my models, but i'm trying to do other stuff. one last thing: use the neck pickup for the most convincing result. its tone profile is closer to an unamplified flattop, which usually has the soundhole overlapping the 24th-fret harmonic. using the bridge pickup is equivalent to picking 3/4" from the bridge of an acoustic.

Just ordered a Gold Tone ME micro bass :)
(The solid body one)

Can't wait to receive it. I had no bass anymore so I wanted a cheap one to help songwriting and stuff. Hopefully they are well built. Looks really fun and from the 2-3 youtube videos I've seen they sound good :) Can't wait to plug it in my hilbish beta :lol:

The old bassist from my band has been making quite a few mini basses and mini fretless basses. I don't get it, but :idk:

I had this Japanese brand for a while under the radar, and finally I pulled the trigger: Electrograve Ripper Fuzz and Quad-Oscillator.
These are some very nice devices!

Yeah the mayones and stradi mini basses for example look really cute and fun. However they are around 17 inches scale basses. This is 23 inches so closer to a guitar which I think is gonna be more playable with less of an adjustment to make to be able to play it. I just hope the quality is good enough and I am not let down by it.
