  1. The K&K mini is a piezo pickup: each of the three small discs is a piezo transducer.
  2. Use standard 11 or 12 gauge bronze strings (either 80/20 bronze of phosphor bronze).When you say you like to play in D do you mean the key of D on a guitar in standard E tuning or do you mean open D or D standard ( tuned 2 semitones down)?. If you are using a lower tuning I'd recomend going up to 13 gauge; open D would be OK with 12 gauge.
  3. A lot of people believe that something expensive is always much better than something that's cheap - even little pieces of plastic.
  4. Sorry, I know no more than you. Perhaps someone else here might know something.
  5. I think it very much depends on where you live. If I lived in the Arizona desert I'd probably use a hygrometer but here in the UK the relative humidity is usually 70%+ which seems to suit guitars well.
  6. I don't know. I don't humidify any of my guitars - never have done - and a couple are 50+ years old. They sit on stands or hang on walls in my non-airconditioned house and endure whatever conditions the UK weather provides.
  7. YAY! Took a while but all's well that ends well.
  8. I've remembered that several weeks ago I promised Deepend that I'd post a Leonard Cohen song. Better late then never, eh? The Partisan by Leonard Cohen
  9. Long time HCAG members will remember Samilyn well. Sadly she passed away last week after a short illness. She has been a special, faraway friend of mine over the years and I shall miss her always.
  10. Spring is here. And some hope too. April Come She Will by Paul Simon https://app.box.com/s/zbb2toxqglllsvb9c1rzt20b7rvp7bpz
  11. I think the Dove and Hummingbird copies were made by Kiso Suzuki around the mid 70s. It is likely to be a very well made guitar that rivals a genuine Gibson in quality. Suzuki guitars from around that time are highly valued instruments. Nice inheritance.
  12. Fender do something similar with a few different models to choose from. I haven't played them so couldn't attest to their sound. Look here: https://shop.fender.com/en-GB/acoustic-guitars/auditorium/newporter-player/0970743044.html
