Two things have been on my mind since the last time we played live:
1. Electric acoustic tone could be improved.
2. I need to cut down on set-up time.
I found some gear that can help, and tried to outline the process a little bit, and give a breakdown of my setup.
If that sounds interesting, read on!
The live rig is finally complete.
First, the pickup. I've never liked the dulled sound of an acoustic instrument through a piezo pickup. I found an alternative: Myers Pickups. This thing is an isolated condenser microphone on a gooseneck working as an active pickup, and it sounds great. The character of the uke really comes through when amplified.
