Dennis Gruenling am 18.9. über Amps & Co.

Beitrag: # 124542Beitrag Juke »

Das nächste Thema, das Dennis Gruenling in seinem Webinar am 18.9. anspricht, ist das elektrisch verstärkte Spiel:
Special topic - “AMPLIFIED HARP” - My next webinar is one I’ve been planing for a long time and will be the first on a topic that is near and dear to me - Amplified Harmonica Playing. With my several decades of experience playing amplified harmonica, as well my experience with literally thousands of microphones and amps, I will be talking about the most important things to keep in mind, what will help you get the most out of your equipment, and of course dispel common myths and untruths about amplified harp and related equipment.

How can you get the best sound out of your amp and mic? What is the difference between various bullet microphones? Don’t all mics, amps, and effects basically work the same? I’ve taught many absolute beginners and just as many seasoned pros a thing or two about amplified harmonica playing, and I will have some Live Q&A time, so reserve your spot for the first session in this series!

TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED:

Understanding the Sound Chain
Acoustic vs. Amplified Tone
Sound vs. Tone
Basic Bullet Microphone Differences
Amplified Techniques
Basic Harp Amp Styles and Qualities
Weitere Infos ... ihr wisst Bescheid.

Marine Band von Joe Filisko als Bonus zum Webinar

Beitrag: # 124767Beitrag Juke »

Übrigens, wer schlanke 250 USD für die Teilnahme am Webinar mit Joe Filisko überweist, bekommt eine originale Custom Marine Band von Joe dazu.
Ein angemessener Preis, finde ich. Die Stückzahlen sind aber begrenzt. Man sollte sich also sputemn, wenn man entsprechende Gelüste hegt.
