Then I can dial it in as necessary. The ES1 system is better for that because it is balanced, but still benefits from the preamp, but differently. JME
Correct, he has a mic/undersaddle combo inside his guitar, and uses an AER amp with an AER Colorizer....and he has a sound man that runs his shows. Not all of us can manage that...but then again, we're not Tommy, either.
