It Never Ends…

Hmmm… remind me to start attending NAMM. Even as I redesign my rig to incorporate my new Peterson VS-II, I hear that this little guy is coming in April…

Getting Better All The Time

An interesting practice run for mixdown of the live recording while helping a friend convert some LPs to CD… unless I’m mistaken, the only way to get a CD burner to identify individual song tracks (so your player can navigate to each track) in a continuous play recording (like the live recording, or in this case, an LP transfer) is to generate individual masters of each song from the complete audio file… thus an exercise in edit points (and fades, at session front, and end) and file management. The convergence of recording and computer technology is, in many ways, ideal. A serendipitous merging of skill-sets… I love that.

Damaged Beyond Repair – Not

Taylor 310-ce

Have finally bitten the bullet and taken my Taylor 310-CE in for a neck reset, after weathering the Washington, D.C. humidity for a year. The innovative “NT” neck-joint on new Taylors is actually designed to allow neck angle readjustments for just this purpose, and luthier Jim Warwick at Music Technology in Springfield, VA, has done a half-dozen neck resets on Taylors, including one of his own. And since we’re doing a reset, we’re going to try some 12s instead of 13s for string gauge… there’s already tone to spare, I’m going for maximum playability. Jim seems to think we can get down to about 3/64″ string action, that Taylors are designed for just that. And it’s all warranty work… I’m officially excited again.
