Overdrive and piezo pickups

Started this discussion. Last reply by Rick Tish Aug 15. 8 Replies

How did you get your best crunchy overdriven tones out of a cbg with a piezo?   I don't generally prefer any more than a natural crunch.  Half the time, the amp is plenty, the rest of the time, I use…Continue

My products have made it into Sight & Sound Music

Dropped off some pick art and guitar neck coat racks at the Muncie, IN-based music store.  You may be more familiar with their online division, World Music Supply.  They will be carrying my stuff in the brick and mortar store.  It felt really good to get the things I build into their shop. I am trying to convince them that the CBG market is untapped in our area and that it is ripe for sales.  Maybe I'll drop one off…See More

Ducktail Run in James Dean Country

Posted on September 29, 2019 at 9:57pm 1 Comment

Sold a few guitars and made some new friends this weekend.  The highlight for me was when my vendor neighbor Soaring Eagle came over after I had started playing a 3 string brownie pan guitar to ask me to turn it up and play more often because 1. it drew customers to not only my booth, but the booths around me; and 2. he just plain loved the music.  Ducktail Run and the two other festivals going on in the county, the Jonesboro River Rally and Fairmount's James Dean Days always brings in huge…

Festival in the land that time forgot

Posted on September 23, 2019 at 10:09am 2 Comments

This weekend, I was at Frankton, Indiana's Heritage Days.  The whole festival was incredible.  A VERY small town put on an outstanding event.  Live music going on almost nonstop for the whole weekend.  Included a car show, tractor show, tons of vendors,

It's like fairs were when I was a kid.  The whole community came out to support the local event and have some fun.  It was really heartwarming to be there in Frankton this past weekend.  I guess the good old days aren't completely…

Mama Pearson's Soaporium

A great market today at Mama Pearson's Soaporium.  A ton of vendors crammed in a couple of parking lots (45+ from the looks of it), great weather, and some friendly customers made for a good time.  Sold a CBG that I made last night.  Now, I'm looking forward to the next one in the spring.  If you or a loved one is into handmade soap, lotions, or manly beard care products, check out Mama Pearson's at https://www.mamapearsons.com/…
