If your boyfriend already has a guitar amp it can be used as a pedalsteel amp. There is no need to buy it. And if he has an o ...

There always room for other mics in certain applications but the Shure SM-57 mic is just not deficient in any way.

Exactly!

Try muting behind the bar and also check if one of the strings you are not playing is in contact with the bar and resonating. You can test it by damping the unplayed strings with a piece of foam. ...

In my opinion you do not need a 15” speaker. The speaker size doesn’t have much to do frequency range anymore. Try some different amps out that are in your budget and buy the one that makes yo ...

if I want to use a different lighter speaker than a JBL I don’t bring a JBL to the shoot out.

Be very careful with compression. It’s like bacon when you cook. I generally go with if you can hear it you used too much. I would suggest not putting it before the pre amp. On the ...
