Re: acoustics and amps
I find it weird how much piezoelectric pickups and dedicated acoustic amps became the de facto “acoustic” sound. It just sounds so sterile to me. My favorite acoustic tones are usually fairly primitive soundhole pickups (Rowes, Dearmonds) into a tube guitar amp. That’s the Lightnin Hopkins sound, but the frontman from Gold Star, Marlon Rabenreither also does something similar with a Martin and a Fender Princeton or Tweed and it sounds glorious. It doesn’t sound like an electric at all- you have all the attack and tone of an acoustic, but you do get the warmth, compression, and grit of a tube amp.
