  2. More gain / volume queries

    25 May 2017 - 01:19 AM

    Turned up at last nights , normally quiet , gig to a crowded bar
    Some fool is getting marrried today so they were all out the night before to ensure the obligatory hangovers in the church

    Anyway , I had to play at a louder volume than I normally would ... I've just used the fishstick for 3 times before last night so Me and it are still getting to know each other

    I found a couple of times that proximity to the mic was clumsy and a couple of times , eyes closed , i moved a little closer to the mic and then scared myself with too much vocal for a split second.
    So - more volume and less gain to smooth this out ?
    Or more gain on the mic and lower volume ?

    This make any sense ?

    I found myself thinking way too much last night about the balance of guitar and mic which made the little gig seem like harder work than I normally find it

    i think what started the ball rolling was the harsh sound that undersaddle pickups have. Takes bit of getting used to and doesn't sound as bad at the normal volume I play at because I guess I can hear the guitar acoustically in my lap a little more

    I didnt fall to pieces or anything and all the above is of course hugely exaggerated in the mind of a man sittin singing songs to a crowd of strangers. But some of you will know how it is , a clear and calm mind allows for the best performance . Sometimes that's harder than other times
  3. Plugged in settings

    17 May 2017 - 12:55 AM

    Have no clue about PA's and speakers etc
    Recently picked up a fishman solostick and am delighted but I'd like to know I'm doing the right things

    Googling tells me that i mute the sound source and play as loud as I'm ever going to need to and turn the gain back until it stops peaking (voice and guitar). That's easy , but , (this applies to guitar only really as the voice has more dimensions with proximity etc)having the gain at that level sounds very 'lively' to me and I get a more pleasing tone by reducing the gain back a little more and using the volume to bring it up
    ...above is all amp references so in reference to the pickups soundhole volume wheel- should I have the guitar volume full , at 3/4's or maybe halfway to get a starting point ?
    Will doing one thing rather than the other matter much really ?

    I hope you can understand what I'm asking

    Many thanks
