    Really enjoyed your playing on Cat Dance and I can detect a smidgin of Leo Kottke in there. He and John Fahey are the two main influences of my acoustic fingerstyle playing....

Q: I want to blend 2 the SD magmic and the k&k pwm, would you give me helpful info or personal thoughts?

A: I'm sorry, I didn't see this question. Hopefully you've figured it out by now. All you need to do is wire the K&K to the extra lug on the MagMic, and use a stereo cable to a mixer or blender to get both channels. I actually swapped the wiring on the jack to have the K&K be on the tip, and the mag on the ring, but that depends on what you want. Email me directly at doug@dougyoungguitar.com if I can be of more help.
