Re: bridgeplate pickups- alternatives to K&K? (reply)
I have put K&Ks in four of my guitars. Before that, I used an old Macintyre (pre-feather). I recently bought an OM-18 a. and didn't want to use superglue on the bridge plate. I put the Macintyre in it and it sounds fantastic. I...

Re: Passive pick up. Boost needed (reply)
Plenty to go at, Greg, including the Xotic EP, the Dunlop Micro Amp and the Morley Buffer Boost.However, the problem with your Boosta Grande doesn't sound too serious to me: if you're otherwise happy with it, maybe it can be economically...

Re: Passive pick up. Boost needed (reply)
I am looking for a volume boost pedal to use for playing solos on my Martin DC Aura. I have been using a BBE Boost (Boosta Grande?) and it has been cutting out (power cable) and now it won't work with batteries. I just need a pedal...

Re: Mic at 12th fret placement. How/why does this work? (reply)
Ah, the SM57. People hate them. People love them. It all depends on what sound you are looking for. When I first started recording at home someone recommended an SM57. I wasn't pleased with the results, and eventually, I bought...

Re: Newbie - Studio Monitors - Focal CMS 40 vs Adam A3X (reply)
Hmmmm.... interesting observations from those who have never heard the D5 or D8. I would never use either without a subwoofer. My music does include keyboards, drums and bass. Does the D8 sound better without a sub? Yes but there's a...

Re: Newbie - Studio Monitors - Focal CMS 40 vs Adam A3X (reply)
No need for concern about the low frequency response of these speakers for what you want them for, Kirk: this is specified as -3dB at 53Hz, whereas the frequency of low E on a guitar is 80Hz and low D is 72Hz. The D8 does go down to...

Thanks again everyone for your insight and comments. Mike, the email that I received indicated that the new D5's are supposed to have better low frequency response. Kirk

I haven't heard them personally but really like the design concepts of the Equator D5s. They look to be ideal for your purposes, are reasonably priced and may well not need a subwoofer in the absence of bass, keyboards and drums from...

Nobody can give you that answer, really. However, once you are planning to spend $800 on a pair of monitors, you have many choices. For me, the Equator Audio D8 blows both of those out of the water. Unfortunately, unless you are in...
