Guitarist / Vocalist
I use this system for all my gigs. I play all my acoustic guitars through it as well as my archtops and solid body guitars. It gives them a wonderful clean natural full range sound. It has a 180 degree sound radius, so no volume loss. I do not use the Bose audio engine. I have a Helix by Line 6 that gives me a full array of sound shaping and effects.
You have to try one of these to hear how amazing your guitars can sound!
Selecting what equipment is right for you is a very personal choice.I am sure that if you talk to ten different musicians you would get ten differnet answers as to what they perfer. It may be based on musical styles, playability, portability, cost, or any combination of these.
I have played many different amps, guitars, and effects over the years. I have heard even more musicians play and use more then I could every try. I have learned that it simply comes down to what is best suited for the individual player and what they are trying to achive.
There is one common thread that I have seen among most musicians, they all seem to be continually looking to improve on their performance and their sound. I personally believe that is the mark of a true artist!
This piece of equipment does it all. Regardless of what style you play, what type of guitars you play, you can create so many different sounds with so many different parameters. Each one has so many controls to fine tune the sound you are looking for. There are numerous: effects, preamps, amps, cabinets, compressors, limiters, and much more. You can also run impulse response patches on it as well. I also use this for my vocal mic. Truly an amazing tool.
