  1. I know I’m way late to this party, but does anybody else think it looks like he is flipping us the two-handed bird?
  2. As it turns out, I agree. And I thought the effects from the Tonewood Amp were not good. The sound was very thin, and even though it says that they have several different sounds, it’s mostly reverb, with a few little tweaks for each.
  3. I hope this is allowed here, since the To Ewoks amp is solely for acoustic guitar. so I watched the hype for a good while and finally pulled the trigger. I spent a lot of time trying to get the best sound I could put of it, but it was not good. I played with it for a month or so, ignored it for the next three months, and then sold it. I’m interested to hear any opinions this group may have.
  4. I have about 900 sq ft of wall that needs soundproofing. I don’t want to spend the several hunge it would cost to put up professional sound absorption squares. The good ones are expensive and the cheap ones are useless. I bought 4 thick material moving blankets that I hope will help. This is a home studio for rehearsal and some basic recording. I’m old and not looking to be discovered. So it need not be pro stuff have you all used anything else that worked for you?
  5. Thanks guys for the advice. A couple days ago I ordered the LD Systems Maui11 g2
  6. Thanks to all for the great advice and suggestions. I THINK I have it narrowed down to the Maui 11 G2, or the Bose L1 Pro 8. All things being equal, I would most likely buy the Bose, but I can’t be sure that the Bose will be loud enough cover 60-100 people sitting on a restaurant patio. the specs say it produces a max of 118dB to the Maui’s 124, but who knows whether that is accurate or not.
  7. I gave up gigging a few years ago because I was burned out, but partly because set up and tear down took so much time. I’m lazy and like to get to bed before 3am. The column is awfully seductive to me. Still, I don’t want to have to sell an insufficient stick and get a more traditional set up later. I’d prefer to do this once.
  8. Thanks! I talked with salesmen at Sweetwater and MF, and both told me I needed 2 of those to reach 100 people in close setting outdoors. I realize I need more outdoors (restaurant patio or winery type venue,) but I didn’t think I needed two. Riley, what sold the ip 2000 to you? I think the wattage on the ip1000 is the same, and the spl on the 2000 is just a few decibels above the 1000. I should add, we are two guitars and two voices.
  9. I am posting this here, because I will be half of an acoustic duo, playing restaurants, restaurant, bar, and winery outdoor patios. Id prefer to spend under $1000 on a PA system. I have made myself dizzy looking at every column array or small traditional PA. I’ve asked two of the online stores about various array systems, with a peak wattage of 800-1400 watts. The salespeople at both stores told me I would probably need 2 (!) of them. What do you think? Why would I need two? Small traditional PAs, mixer and two speakers on a stick, wattage seems to be from 400-600watts. for an outdoor event with 100 people, what would you use?
  10. I was a sort of regular here a few years ago. I lurked a lot more than I posted. Glad to be back. I mostly play a Martin OME Cherry or a Breedlove Solo Nylon hybrid. Looking for a portable PA system and hopefully another player to do some gigs in or around Louisville KY. Looking for any and all suggestions on which portable PA. Looking at a Turbosound iP1000 and a few others.
  11. A friend of mine who plays solo gigs, all instrumental (no vocals) swears by his and he’s a pedal head. I think I will pick one up. If/when, I’ll report back. thanks!
  12. Yes or no? Show your work. 😉
  13. I’m way late in reporting back, but I bought the Martin OME and love it. No regrets and I got it for $400 less than asking. It supposedly has a blemish, but neither I, nor the Salesman, nor a guitar tech could find it. In my mind, if I don’t see it, it doesn’t exist. I’m looking for a tower system. Either the low end Bose L1, the LD Maui 5, or maybe the 600 watt Turbosound. Possibly, but less likely, the boss S1 or turbosound inspire 300 as well. many thoughts or opinions?
  14. I literally had never heard of this guitar maker until yesterday. I’ve only heard YouTube demos on my phone, but they sound good in general, and amazing for the price. when I Recover from the Martin purchase I recently made, I may well pick one of these up as a daily knock-around-er.
  15. Yamaha, Seagull, possibly Breedlove. It’s been a while since I’ve paid attention to Breedlove, though, so I don’t know if their entry level instruments fall into that price ranged. Maybe used.
