I did a show last night backing a friend at the local cultural center. I amplified my Taylor steel string and el cheapo Vantage nylon string through the HD500 and an EV elx112p. I didn't use any other outboard gear. From a convenience standpoint, it couldn't have been better. I had a patch for each with eqs, & comp and tiny bit of chorus. The building was an old bank (we played in front the open vault) with high ceilings was very reverberant so delay and reverbs were off. The beauty of it was being able to plug the Taylor (K&K Western) into the guitar input and the nylon (old Fishman Matrix Natural) into the aux and have the unused guitar automatically muted. Switching back and forth was seamless. Sonically, the nylon string was killer (surprisingly). It was easy on the ears and cut through (it was a 2-6 piece band depending on the tune), which is an elusive quality with amplified acoustics, in my experience. I've never really been happy with the Taylor's amplified sound, but it was serviceable. I can't wait to do the same thing with an electric/acoustic setup. I play with a classic R&B/Soul band and the nylon string would work with some tunes. Anyway, just thought I'd share (if there is any media, I'll post--not sure). I'm really pleased with the sound (esp the nylon string) and the flexibility/simplicity of the setup. The sixty or so folks in attendance seemed to enjoy it as well.
