Re: L.R. Baggs Anthem or L.R. Baggs Lyric vs L.R. Baggs M1 Active or K&K Pure Western Mini (reply)
"Are there preamp/amp adjustments that can be made to make the K&K sound just as good or better than the M1A?"No, there aren't: the two pickups work on totally different principles and are not comparable, so no amount of control...

Fishman TONEDEQ pedal (topic)
Anyone else using a Fishman TONEDEQ acoustic pedal? It must be fairly new. Perfect pedal for acoustic effects in 1 box. My old Boss AD3 died (well, actually I might killed it when it fell outta my gig bag) and found this at GC. Using it...

No EQ adjustments under the sun will help a bridgeplate transducer like the K&K sound like a mag.   To my ears, the K&K sounds best through the Red Eye, so you're already doing the right thing there.   I don't know any solution...

L.R. Baggs Anthem or L.R. Baggs Lyric vs L.R. Baggs M1 Active or K&K Pure Western Mini (topic)
I recently purchased the L.R. Baggs M1A and temporarily installed it on my standard Martin 000-42 with the jack/cable hanging. The sound is great and I love it, much better than the K&K Pure Western Mini on my D-28. Both guitars are...

@Tammuz - sorry for the delayed response. Yeah the port vx has a lightning cable. After figuring out levels, and tilting it to stereo track guitar left, vocals right, I think I have found the greatest mobile recording tool ever. With a...

Re: pedal set-up for pickup or mic.... (reply)
K&K uses three transducers: 1M Ohm input is right enough. Fishman and all others that use a single piezo: 10M Ohm input is about right. A 4-transducer system as found on some basses works fine into 1M. Likewise, a twin piezo is...

Re: pedal set-up for pickup or mic.... (reply)
The Pure XLR and the Mackie are both suitable impedance-matching devices for the K&K Passive and nothing else is required in addition.The point I was making is that an interface is not needed at all with tube amps and with several...

Re: pedal set-up for pickup or mic.... (reply)
You already have an appropriate interface in the form of your Pure XLR preamp but now seem to be saying that it makes no noticeable improvement to the sound of the K&K when played through your Fishman amp. If you haven't noticed an...

Re: pedal set-up for pickup or mic.... (reply)
You can test for the impedance issue very easily: just plug your K&K's output directly into the Line input on either Channel 1 or 2 with all eq controls set to "u" and the "Instrument" button (marked with an electric guitar symbol)...

Re: macbook/ipad recommendation for recording (reply)
Correction: Earlier I mentioned that the R24 had 8 channels of phantom power. Not correct. It has 6, switchable in pairs. Channels 5-6 are activated by a panel switch and are 48V only. Channels 3/4 and 7/8 are set through the control...

Re: planet waves cable station (reply)
All Planet Waves cables that I have ever used were solderless. In normal, extra heavy duty stage use, let's just say that I am not a fan and all of them worked better for me with Neutrik connectors that I soldered on. Having said that,...

I do not recommend buying the iPad 1, 2 or 3. Each has issues now as iOS evolves. If someone gives you one, that's different, these machines are still useful. In fact, I'm typing this on my 1st gen iPad but I wouldn't give you money for...

I got a Zoom iQ7 plug-in microphone the other day for my iPad. It cost $100 and works really great. You have to have the lightning connector that comes on the newer iPads. Recording is as simple as you can get with the free Zoom...
