More fun with the Digitech Vocalist Live Harmony. The Live Harmony used for all vocal effects, as well as the chorus effect on the acoustic guitar, and for playing back the backing loop during the solo. Acoustic is a LAG T80ACE. Solo played on a Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster into a Fender Champion 40 amp, all effects from the amp. Mic is a Shure SM58.
Quick demo of the amazing Vocalist Live Harmony pedal. This thing will loop guitar and vocals and provide backing harmonies – male or female (heaps of variations of each), 1 part, 2 parts, a third, a fifth or an octave up or down. It provides guitar effects, vocal effects – you can double your own voice and add delays, reverbs, flangers, all sorts. Phantom power, stereo outs, UBS connectivity, super easy to use, stacks of presets…. such an amazing unit. Perfect for the solo artist. The audio is just taken from the cameras built in mic so it’s not the best, and my vocals aren’t great, but I’m all we’ve got currently! If this thing can make me sound reasonable imagine what it will do for you!
“I’ll have some guitar strings please”. Right. There is a lot to learn about guitar strings. Acoustic or electric? Steel string or nylon string? What gauge? Which brand? Phosphor Bronze or vintage bronze? If you’re buying on-line you’ll need to know what you’re after or you’ll get the wrong ones. If you’re coming into the shop, having some idea of what you need will save you some time for sure! OK, so… Acoustic guitar strings: This includes ‘Acoustic/Electric’ guitars, or acoustic guitars with a built in pickup. These guitars are often incorrectly referred to as ‘semi-acoustic’, but actually that’s something different again. An acoustic guitar with a pickup is simply an acoustic guitar, with a pickup, and takes the same strings as a normal acoustic guitar. So is it nylon or steel? This is really important. Putting steel strings on a ‘classical’ nylon string guitar is a crime almost as …

The Fishman Loudbox Mini acoustic guitar amp. Geepers, this is one of the smallest amps in the shop, but it sure packs a punch. Huge sound! I was blown away! 60 watts, 2 channels (one for instrument, one for mic), each with individual reverb controls, and a seperate chorus control on the instrument channel. Phase switching and master volume. This would be great in a cafe or pub. Plug in a guitar and a mic, no need for a PA. The reverb is very natural sounding, sounds lovely. This amp can get plenty loud without distorting. A serious amp in a tiny package. $850 RRP.
