Q: What gear do you use, when you play live do you use any effects ?
A: No effects. Usually no pick...which gives a much better tone, but hurts when I forget to pick one up for a heavy strumming song. Usually no tuner. Probably a mistake that. But mostly I just try to get my ovation sounding right, which has been a huge challenge because of the crappy 1990 pickup. Recently gave up trying and bought the Fishman Infinity pickup, getting a bone saddle, and having the intonation fixed (lowered) right now. Haven't played it live yet. For electric, I sometimes use the Holy Grail pedal for the spring reverb.
