Ok any American Idol fans or even casual watchers out there? Every week the remaining contestants preview their possible song choices in a studio in front of the weekly mentors. There is always a…Continue

Off Topic But Martin Related

I know I should probably post this in the Strings Forum but it's for my Martin MMV so I respect all your opinions. First a silly confession but you'll see the method to my madness.

"I have found that I get a really fine nice but not true acoustic sound out of a Tele (Even Squire Ones) and a Behringer ADi21 DI/Modeler Box, and it also doubles as a great EQ/DI for an acoustic guitar and it would be cheaper than a LP even an…"

Mike Bishop replied to Craig MC's discussion D-28 vs MMV vs D-16RGT explanation? in the group Martin Owners
"From what I understand (I have an MMV) the bracing is all the same which is why the sound is so similar. The MMV doesn't have the frilly mother-of-pearl rosette inlay. The machine head may be a less expensive model as well. I just know that…"

"Honestly I have not yet plugged in to a real amp. I'm playing through my iPad with a iRiffport and my iPad speaker dock. Needless to say it would not be fair to the Zager to even comment at this point LOL. But, I really like the ZAD20E. I got…"
