I’ve chatted in the past about doing the same thing for my bass, but that will be a different post in the future.
So I ask you, dear internet, what do you put in your acoustic guitar signal path? A tuner? Reverbe? Overdrive? Distortion? Delay? etc. Do you have an acoustic rig like nate at Let’s Play Guitar with Sonic Maximizer, distortion, boost, and analog delay? It seems to me that a tuner could be in the signal chain, but for live performance, a headstock tuner would be even easier to use. But you may want some sort of kill switch or volume control so you can tune silently.
I saw Rob Dickinson on tour supporting his solo album and he had three pedals on a small wood plank going into a DI box. He sounded great!
And hopefully you watched to at least the 2:59 point, but especially the 5:09 point, when he kicked in the distortion. Live it was such a boost to the overall emotion and power of the song. He did the same thing on Heal, but it was a bit more limited.
