Accoustic Guitar on Spider4
by thomone on 2012-12-14 03:58:32.6390


sometimes I need an accoustic guitar and so I plugged it into my Spider4 and, oh wonder, there is a bunch of feedback. I coud not really get rid of it even when I turned around. MyGuitar is an Ovation with piezo-pickup.

Does anybody have an idea how I could get a good sound out of my spider witz my Ovation??

Have to tell you that it is a factor of your guitar.  I use a Fender CD140SCE and can stand right in front of my my Spider IV 75 and not get feed back at practice room volume levels.  If I turn around and face the amp, I get feedback of course.

There are feedback-preventing soundhole inserts, you may want to try one of those.

OK, I think I have to try these inserts.

By the way, are there any interesting soundsetting for Accoustic Guitars available?

Clean Green as your start setting (manual), then add some drive/gain for volume, adjust tone as needed based on your guitar.  I use the same settings for an old Epiphone acoustic with a sound-hole mounted Markley pickup and have no issues with that either.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
