Fender Urge, AcoustiPad and Project T-40. . . . . .

After all the instruments I have covered, some rare and some
unique, the feature on Peter Cook and all my other ramblings,
it still fascinates me why the Fender Urge feature gets hit every
day, several times!

I had this for some time, enjoyed it and then decided to let it go.
I wish I had kept it now!
Maybe I missed something - don't think I did.
One thing is for sure, it had a great sound and with the 32" scale,
was very fast to play.

Anyway, for all you Urge fans, here's a couple more shots of the beast!

I am going to dig out some others and post them up later.

Here is a link to the first post I put up.
As you will see, it was nothing fancy, it was just a standard post
but for some reason, there must be an awful lot of players that
are interested in the old fella.


Well, that's what I call it.

I have covered this in a previous post, so this is an update.

Like most musicians, you always want to sound you best when
playing live.
Sometimes it doesn't work!

Wooden stages cause all sorts of issues and after one particular
"boomy" gig, I decided I would have to do something about it.
The are stock, off the shelf items that insulate your cab from
the stage. The standard one was too small and the larger one
was a little over sized.

So, I bought the correct Platfoam and made my own, for not
much money and not much time.

Tried it a couple of weeks back.

Does it work?? YES, it does, very well! Very pleased with it.
It does a very good job of separating the bass frequencies from
the stage and gives a much better projection of the sound you
hope the audience will hear. Result!

Project T-40 is still on the go - I have decided that as this is
a Project, I am going to go with a middle pick-up option.
Still trying to figure out the wiring but I'm sure I'll get it sorted.
Will keep you posted.

See you next time.

Cheers. :)
