Re: Farewell old friend, hello new one - just arrived!
Since I kept the new one in straight fourths tuning, there is a difference in the top end. Also, I'm now using a Helix into a pair of QSC K12 s. I'm finding that using the bass modeling works pretty well, I get plenty of low end. Also doing a mix guitar and bass that's crossed over between 2-3 KHz so now I'm getting a much meatier sound than I'm used to. The fret rails are fantastic, they really bring out RH picking techniques. I'm hearing a bit more clarity when fingerpicking as compared to normal frets.
Now that you've played with it a couple of months, how's the new Wenge NS/Stick, Steve? You mentioned last time I talked to you that the newer model had several playability improvements. I'm curious as to how it compares to your other Sticks. I haven't seen a Skydiver post lately to make me keep wanting to get one.
Loved your Bob pics and videos by the way! Any idea when the next MiStick night might be?
