We also had 4 songs from Bob and Nige of The Poorboys – Lonesome Whistle, Thrill is Gone, and 2 others I don’t remember the name of (I was too busy trying to play guitar, run the desk and monitor output all at the same time! Hope it didn’t sound too bad out there!)

New Behringer pedal

When I played with Tri at the BishopFM folk fundraiser, the guy doing the sound suggested that I get one of these to boost the signal from my acoustic guitar. My guitar has a Martin under bridge piezo pickup which was fitted about 15 years ago when I played in the Bob Allison Country Band, but it doesn’t have a preamp built in, which means it needs a little tweaking when I’m plugged direct into a PA system. The box acts as a passive DI box but can also process the sound – the blend control is aimed at simulating the sound of a microphone into a tube preamp. I haven’t tried it yet, but it gets good reviews.
