ZOOM Q2N TEST - w Fishman Loudbox Mini & 3 String Cigar Box Guitar


Zoom Q2n test, with Fishman Loudbox Mini amp, Electroharmonix 22500 Loop Pedal, Mooer Tender Octaver and home made 3 String Cigar Box Guitar.
The Zoom seemed to pick up the sound of the loop pedal buttons being pressed too well! It coped well with the varying volumes...

The song I'm playing is called "Forget Me Not" I wrote it after reading Wendy Mitchell's book "Somebody I Used To Know" which is a first hand account of being diagnosed with, and living with, young onset dementia.
The Forget Me Not symbol is the logo for the Alzheimer's Society, and is often used as an emblem by dementia communities.

For more info on the guitar I'm playing, see this video

Thanks Digly, yes it's a good bit of kit. Think I can fix it to my busking trolley on a selfie stick and easily do a quick video. Haven't busked this year yet due to an inflamed tendon in my wrist. I'm slowly getting back to playing and hoping to get back to it soon...The Fishman would be a bit heavy. I'm already at the maximum of what I can carry!

Hi Be, That looks and sounds really great.  Looking forward to some hopefully sunny busking vids from the familiar towns of the Fens.  That super-wide lens should capture you and some nice backgrounds along with some decent sound. It looks like a really useful little gadget.

Maybe take the Fishman and plug into one of those car-charging bollard things ;-)

thanks all for the lovely comments : -)

Andries, I do take all that with me busking, apart from a different smaller battery powered amp (Roland AC33) Oh and yes I've lost a lot of hair, but no pounds! I think the fish eye will be useful when I take it busking, so I don't need the camera too far away. Think I can attach it to my busking trolley...

You are one of my fav's Belinda, life keeps taking me away but it's so good to come back and find you still 'doing your thing'. Sounds so technical but what an awesome sound and performance you have going on. cheers

To Be Cannibalized: 1976 Ovation 1132-1

This is an old Ovation that got wrecked by the ravages of time, string tension and suboptimal storage conditions. At the very least I’m going to use the tune...
