Martin LX1E

The small Martin series is fun to play and sounds amazingly good for a guitar partly made of formica! I bought my LXME for around $220 and the retail has just been going up. I got mine setup by a luthier and it plays really great. Almost like an electric guitar feel. The built in Fishman pickup sounds great and it’s easy to get a decent piezo pickup sound. I pair mine with the ZOOM MSG-50. Sounds great! The link is to the LX1E which has a solid wood top.

AKG D5 vocal mic for live

After listening and checking out all the available decents mics for live, the AKG D5 stands out as a great choice! I like the smooth, warm tone that sounds clearer than the standard Shure SM58.

I got a 2 pack of these tuners and they are amazing! Accurate and fast tuning plus a built in visual metronome!

Tip: remove the sticker from the display and the plastic insert for the battery.

ZOOM MS50G multi-effects guitar pedal

While searching for a small chorus/delay/reverb pedal, I came across the MS50G. This looks like a great small pedal for an analog synth (for the backend) and also as an acoustic guitar pedal (EQ->Chorus->reverb etc…). You can chain up to 6 effects at once.

It works great for acoustic guitar! This pedal has a lot of power. You can easily put a booster->EQ->Chorus->Delay->Reverb and have a nice signal chain for your acoustic guitar.

It’s low cost $100! ¬†Great to throw in the gig bag with the acoustic guitar or as a backend for a minimoog!

Area Note for iOS

I wrote this small utility that leverages the power of the reminders app in iOS/iPhone. There were many times I wanted to be reminded of the names of people I have met at a club, like the manager’s/bartender/worker’s name. In addition you can use this for gate codes, really anything that you want tied to a location. All you do is run the app, press the + to add a new note that is tied to the current location. Since it uses the built in reminders, you can share your notes with anyone else. Very cool and useful and FREE.

Musician Insurance

For years I have used MusicPro insurance, but I never had to actually make a claim. After many years, I did have to make a claim and they were really fast and efficient! If you don’t have insurance and you play all the time, do yourself a favor and get insurance! The cost is very little compared to what you can lose through theft or with an accident.
