    Just messing around I like air on solo acoustic guitar.

    OK, I just tried both Air and Bright settings with my new Yamaha AEX 500 Nylon, plugged direct-in with 15db pad engaged and the gain at 8. All I can say is the guitar responded beautifully. The bottom was well-defined--not flabby, and the highs were sweet and present--not harsh. Further experimentation is needed, but so far I'm liking this combo--especially with Air.

    why did you pad the guitar??

    Less valve sound on acoustic guitars appeals to most people.

    I love the AIR switch.
    It kind of reminds me of the feeling I got when I walked 8 miles home during the August 2003 blackout, and jumped into a cold, refreshing shower.

    I blow AIR on a few things like percussion, old rusty-stringed acoustic guitars, some pads, etc.

    I don't know. It just sounded best to me. Can you tell I'm not a pro? :lol:

    I will certainly try it without the pad next time.

    This is a thin hollow body electric acoustic, not a traditional acoustic like my Webber OM. At least on this day, more valve sounded better to me.

    pad not engaged means full valve.
    -15 less valve
    -30 least valve

    This is how I've understood it, and that's how it sounds to me.

    -15 and -30 get the most use at my place, especially with singing.
    If I don't use the pads the vocals tend to sound like the main-course in an aussie bbq. sizzling hot. :shock:
    For percussive stuff the full valve treatment tends to be cool.
