Many thanks for the feedback folks! Much appreciated!
When I get a proper recording done, I’ll share it with you all so you can get a good idea of what this little guitar can do! I have a friend is who is truly incredible on the guitar and I’d love to record him playing it as soon as it’s safe to be around other people!
The lewitt mics represent great value for money and the reviews are excellent. They were very much in the running and I still might pick up one of their small diaphragm mics. At their price point, I don’t think you could go wrong!
I’m still very much in the honeymoon phase so a bit too soon to properly judge it but I sure do love this little guitar. It’s so easy to record too!
I still want a 00 Skye! Something to work towards I guess!
I’m very new to home recording. I just started to put the home studio together in the summer, a lockdown project. The Aston Spirit is an amazing mic for the money… less than $400. I’d like to buy more mics but I keep buying guitars! Haha
Just uploaded a quick snippet that you can check out below. I don’t have any proper recordings yet as I’m still learning proper mic placement! The below recording has a touch of compression, the low rumbly stuff taken out and a bit of verb for good measure!
Yay!! The photo uploaded! Thanks indexless!
The mics are an Aston Spirit on the bottom and a 3u Audio Warbler II on the bottom. Both inexpensive but sound great. I have them set up for mid/side recording and it really sounds glorious! The amp is a Princeton indeed but it’s a reissue!
I’ve been recoding the Don Edwards guitar all morning and it sounds so good!
I tried to attach a picture but failed miserably… 🙁February 16, 2021 at 8:33 am in reply to: Santa Cruz Coffee Break #19 Zoomin’ with Richard Hoover #5446
Finally caught up on all these podcasts! They’re great and so informative!
And my Don Edwards thread got mentioned! 🙂
Keep up the great work… Really enjoyable conversations!
Ashamed to say that as an Irish man, I prefer a good Scotch! Talisker or Lagavulin with my new Don Edwards would be quite the combination!
Slowly catching up on all the episodes! Most enjoyable and informative. Looking forward to getting up to date and listening to this one!
Wow! This is one fine little guitar!
I’m blown away by the build quality. The mahogany is absolutely stunning and the burst is executed to perfection. I keep giggling like an idiot everytime I open the case!
This guitar has a lot of what I loved about the Skye. It’s light as a feather, super resonant and so responsive to even the lightest touch. Not like any other all hog Guitar I’ve ever played. I was worried it might be lacking in high end sparkle, it’s does not. I really love this little guitar.
It’s a while since I’ve owned a little guitar so it’s gonna take a bit of getting use to. The neck is also really wide and I’m use to a 45mm neck. Great for finger picking!
Ok, I still think I’ll end up getting a Skye but for the price I paid, I’m delighted with this guitar and I don’t think it will be going anywhere anytime soon!
My God! The good folk at Santa Cruz know how to build a fine guitar!
Thanks for all the help and input during this transaction! This is a great forum!
