Neil Andersson Equipment ?

Hi Neil:

I really liked your tone when you played at the last DFNW. Afterward, I asked you about your equipment and you told me that you were using a Schertler Basik (perhaps in combination with a Bigtone?).

Were you using it through one of their preamps. or just plugged right in to your amp (I think it was an AER?)?

    Hi Charlie,

    Nice to hear from you...and thanks for your comments on my tone at DjangofestNW - I'm glad you liked it. I wasn't sure how it sounded out front...it sounded a bit bright on 'stage' to me. Anyway, I was using the Schertler Basik straight into the XLR input of the AER - no preamp, with the tone settings generally about 12 o'clock (sometimes I add more bass or roll the treble back depending on the room); I have sometimes blended the Basik with the Bigtone bridge pickup, but as I recall that night I decided not to do that. Generally now, depending on what guitar I use, I'm using just the Basik. I place it about a half inch or so from the foot of the treble side of the bridge.

    Hope this helps...let me know if you need more info. Best,

    Thanks greatly for the information, Neil!

    You gave me some input on guitar choice about 8 years ago, which was also very helpful. I may have to try the Basik myself, if it was that easy, as I also use an AER.

  • I was also groovin' on your tone tonight - but I'm guessing you didn't use a bigtone to record this one... seriously great tone though... an absolute classic.
    You get one chance to enjoy this day, but if you're doing it right, that's enough.
