Hi Shawn, not using electronics on these just the acoustic sound into the mic of the video recorder. I did play the 'Ye Banks and Brae' one through my hi fi since I thought the recordings were a little quiet but I've abandoned that as I didn't like the sound but maybe it wasn't that bad after all. Most of the videos are just the acoustic guitar itself and a cheap video camera.
