My searchesx aren't helping me out here, as I'm sure this topic has been explored, but I'll start it again. I'm an "electric" guy who's so immersed in the solid-body/amp cult, for so many years, that playing with a singer-songwriter the past three years has been .....interesting, let's say. Not to go on and on about this, but it's a different approach, and 'sense of sound,' and I'll leave it at that. But essentially I'd like to ask those who are mostly or exclusively acoustic players: What is your basic approach, vis-a-vis: 1. Through DI box into P.A. vs. 2. Into mic'd acoustic amp? Part of the question to me involves recommending the best acoustic amps, per se. I'm trying to "sell" this person on this (the acoustic guitar-amp), perhaps because I'm used to 'doing' things that way, and like to maintain as much control over things as possible, before the sound guys eq and push faders. Hope this is clear set of questions.
