I have an L1C and for the past five years have used it with an LBMini (then a direct line to the L1C). When my Mini crapped out, I bought an S1 (while waiting on Fishman for the repairs)... I like the S1>L1C sound even better.

Methos, as I start hauling out the acoustics to get back into playing, I am considering the BOSS VE-8 like you have--guitar and vox into that, then that to left and right Bose S1. I would also like to add a little "grunge" to my guitar, and have an old fuzz pedal. Do you think it would work to run my guitar into that, then go from the fuzz to the BOSS?

Not Methos but expect fuzz into a full range acoustic amplification system to be very fizzy. If that is what you want, it will work.

For whatever reason, the tonematch on the speaker is perfect for my guitar; it takes all the "boominess" out of it so I can sing over it. It's that magic that makes it the perfect speaker for me as I've never been able to get a sound I liked using anything else.

Default Bose S1 or QSC K8.2?

I just landed at an airport and when I walked into the terminal I heard this beautiful full sounding acoustic guitar music. I thought it was being piped into the terminal through their pa. Then I saw a guitarist about 100 feet away... as I walked up I saw he was using an S1! Wow. What a big full beautiful sound.

Thanks Hunter. I'm not looking for metal-type distortion, just a little edge to it. I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't cause any issue with the signal chain.

I have no experience with adding that type of effect but so I really can't comment. My concern would be, does adding this type of effect adversely effect the auto-key detection for the harmonizer? That's the only thing I could think of as possibly being problematic. But I don't know the answer. I don't think it would hurt anything to try it though.

Good point...I hadn't thought about the harmonizer. Hmm, I'll have to think of some other options.

But as Methos put it, he was talking about the auto-key detection for the harmonizer, which indeed is based on detecting the chords you're playing. You can also tell the VE-8 what key you're in, and it's supposed to base the harmony on that, based on your voice. At least thats how I recall it, I always use the autokey detector.

My problem is that I really never know what key I'm in! We tune down half a step and then capo 1 through 4 as needed so I have no idea! I will say that one time we used the VE-8 and I didn't notice that we had it in the fixed key button and it still sounded fine. I don't know what key the fixe defaults to but apparently we were playing all the songs we used it on in the same key! Go figure.

Same here, even when not capo'd in utterly standard tunings. I had a firmer grasp and keys and so forth back in my trumpet days.

The specs on the Bose site have different dispersion angles:

120 deg H, 50 def V
