Last but not least the stereo output of the Looper goes into two of this devices. The Palmer PAN 01 is a D.I. Box that processes unbalanced signals into balanced ones. So I have two balanced XLR outputs wich get panned hard left/right. This creates a balanced nice stereo output for the final mix. Remember this is a passive D.I. Box because I have active pick ups. If you are using passive pick up systems you should better buy active D.I. Boxes.

The Ditto X2 Looper from T.C. Electronics is simple and has a high quality sound (24bit!). Actually I am using the small brother of this Looper at the moment which has only a mono in/output but I will upgrade soon to this device that has only some differences: It is stereo and has an additional knob for better controlling. The premixed stereo output of the Mackie Mixer goes into this device to create loops in stereo.

The Mackie VLZ4 compact mixer is literally built like a tank and it has just the basic functions I need. 4 channels, stereo output, 2 band EQ and high quality onyx preamps. That is all I need to combine all the signals (3 in total: 1. The pure octaver sound, 2. The magnetic pick up chain and 3. The Undersaddle/Mic pick up chain) and mix them into one stereo output.

Mackie Series Compact Mixers is the original no-nonsense mixer series featuring Mackie’s flagship Onyx mic preamps.

The Vox 810 Valvetone is a pretty old-school overdrive pedal. Again only the magnetic pick up signal goes through this device. It has a warm, kinda crunchy tone and I use it for solos or to create a wide spectrum of sounds when I play flageolets. Unfortunately that pedal is retired years ago but you can still find some online.

The BOSS OC-3 is the most boring but also the most reliable base player ever! The signal of the magnetic pick up that goes through the tuner first goes into this device after that. Thanks to the poly mode it only adds an octave to the range you settled up before. In my case I only use it for the lowest string. That means I can play single notes and chords and only the lowest string will have an additional octave below the actual note.

This device, the Mi-Si Acoustic Duo is a magnetic pick up. The advantage of a magnetic pick up, like this one is, is that it only amplifies the strings. So theoretically this device allows my acoustic guitar to use FX that are normally more functional with an E-Guitar. For instance a distortion, octaver etc. work way more accurate and defined through magnetic pick ups compared to proper mics or under saddle pick ups. Also tuning through this device works more accurate and defined.

LR Baggs Anthem Stage Pro for amplifing the sound of the body of the guitar. A proper mic and an undersaddle pic up garantee a balanced warm and natural sound. The blend function between the two signals, the notch filter, phase switch and the EQ will make sure that there won´t be feedback for live situations

The Baggs Anthem systems combine the tried-and-true Baggs Element undersaddle pickup with a revolutionary new microphone. Anyone who has used an onboard mic kno
