According to Radial’s very own guitar guru Corey Philips: “We are often on the phone with artists and guitar techs who are constantly pushing the limits of their guitar rigs. And with so many now preferring to connect their effects via the amplifier’s effects loop, a new… View this story

    This article is provided by CCI Solutions.   Many worship teams now include an electric guitar to reproduce the growing number of contemporary worship songs found on the radio and used in churches across America and abroad. The idea of an electric guitar came from the need to overcome the challenge of playing in a large ensemble since the acoustic guitars of the day could not compete with the volume of the other instruments. The original guitar amplifiers were simple… View this story

The Headload Prodigy is a combination load box and DI that enables one to drive a guitar amp at a higher output in order to maximize the tone, yet produce a lower stage volume when needed. Like the original Headload, the Prodigy employs custom made cement-encrusted resister coils to convert the excessive power from the amplifier to heat and is able to withstand up to 100 watts RMS. The Prodigy may… View this story

    Courtesy of Universal Audio.   If you ask a handful of engineers how they approach recording acoustic guitars, you’re likely to get at least a handful of different answers (provided they’re willing to divulge). This is because so many factors play a part in capturing an acoustic guitar: the room, playing style, body size, recording environment, the player’s skill level, etc. All things considered, however, most engineers will tell you the real secret to recording acoustic guitar is simple: stereo… View this story

    microphone techniques
    Bruce Bartlett 08/27/15 06:41 AM,
    Suppose you’re reinforcing a singer/guitarist in mono, with one microphone on the singer and another mic on the acoustic guitar. The vocal sounds funny - sort of hollow or filtered. What’s happening? Both microphones are picking up the singer, with the mic for the guitar about one foot farther from the singer’s voice than the mic for the vocals (Figure 1, below). So there are two vocal signals in the mix – one is direct and the other is delayed.… View this story
