I’m kind of surprised that it was a pickup without an internal mic! You had a very warm and rich sound up there.
How much of the tone would you attribute to the LR Baggs DI? I’ve got a Tech 21 Acoustic DI, but it looks like the LR Baggs has more sound shaping capabilities.
So, since it’s just a beat up old Yamaha, how much of the guitar’s actual acoustic tone would you say comes through in a pick-up or dual source performance?
You wrote that saddle pickups in general sound hard and loud; would you classify the LB6 as a saddle pickup? Does its design absolve it from some of the pitfalls of its counterparts?
One last question: have you messed around with the Fishman Aura internal system? I have yet to hear it live, but I hear good things (and bad, of course) in reviews, as well as an embedded web video or 2.
Brother, I appreciate your thoroughness and attention to detail. Thanks for coming to our church to play, and for taking the time to respond beyond the call of duty!
God bless you and the gift He’s given you,”
Thanks so much for the question!
