Re: K&K Mini pickup .......... is a K&K preamp also necessary? (reply)
For those concerned about the often discussed (but never empirically demonstrated) impedance mismatch involving K&K and JJB pickups used with preamps with 10 MegOhm input impedance, a simple and very inexpensive solution exists to...

Hi Kev Your post follows what I understood to be the case having read your advic eon here to others and also what prestige say on their site ( reproduced above). It seems odd to me that the original A1 was rated at 1 whereas the new A1+...

That's not what I've found with this type of pickup, and not what JJB and K&K both say, either.This from the FAQs on JJB's website:-"Q; Is my preamp compatible with your systems?A; The most important thing to look for is an input...

Here is a reply from Laney re the A1+and my question re the OHM. It does seem that they believe the OHM compatability to be slightly differing to advice on here ( if that is my understanding) as they say it is okay to be higher. Note...

Re: Amp question (reply)
The component specs are similar to a Vibroluxe. Yea, if priced right, I'd go for it. If not quite right, any decent amp tech should be able to get it going for you. It should make a nice club amp and annoynyour neighbors.

Re: I-Phone recording app? (reply)
GarageBand is built in or inexpensive of not. If you are on iOS7, it's very good. The earlier versions work well, too. Depending on your iPhone, there are stereo mics that plug right in to the 30 pin or Lightening connector.

Re: Amp Modeling for Recording --What do you use? (reply)
Digital Performer has some nice amp modeling as well - it's usually my first choice. I have others including a few from Amplitude that I rarely use. My favorite is to get it right when I record but that isn't always possible.

Amp Modeling for Recording --What do you use? (topic)
I do a fair amount of recording for myself and my friends on my computer.   When I  record an electric guitar, I use Amplitube 3, and generally, I've been satisfied with the results.   What do you use when you record electric guitar at...

Re: Amp question (reply)
Thanks Mike.  I'll have to check out the Guild book.  I think that Guild made the amps.  It's relatively cheap and does sound better for what I want it for than other amps I A/Bd with it so I think I'm going to buy it.  Here is a picture...

Re: Amp question (reply)
The first thing to find out: Who made the Guild amps? Perhaps Hans Moust noted it in The Guild Book.

Re: Amp question (reply)
Like you Rusty i was not aware that Guild had ever ventured in to the realm of amps. Great guitars yes; amps no so will be interested to see if anyone else has any experience of them

Amp question (topic)
Until this weekend I had never even known that Guild made amps. Anyone have any experience with early 60's Guild 66-J's?  I'm looking at one from '62 to use with my CF-1 archtop for western swing and lighter jazz.  I've played it and...

Re: K&K Mini pickup .......... is a K&K preamp also necessary? (reply)
The specs in the 1A's manual are somewhat garbled but it seems reasonable to assume that "HiZ Instrument Input Impedance 1Meg" is what it's trying to say. The omission of this important parameter in the manual for the 1A+ is...

Re: K&K Mini pickup .......... is a K&K preamp also necessary? (reply)
I was quite surprised myself at how good the sound was on a fairly cheap guitar. It is also very compact despite its power and facilities. The chorus/reverb were both decent and blended together gave a very nice overall sound on the...

 I don't think I'm appreciated by all, Graeme, but thanks all the same!Frustratingly, the Laney website keeps freezing and we ended up with the manual for the old 1A in my last post. I've now managed to pull up the right manual for the...

Thanks for that Kev. I did look at that but was put off by the 1Meg bit as didnt realise that was the same as 1ohm. I have a lot to learn about these technicalities but so thankful for experts like yourself on here to guide us down the...
