Gratuitous ego shot:
Stick players unite! I think it's high time those of us who like to 'touchstyle' things up a bit had somewhere to discuss, pose and debate the unusual world of the touchstyle/tapping instrument, whether it be a Chapman Stick, Warr Guitar, Krappy (like mine), Mobius Megatar or whatever else...
I hope all you adventurers in stick come out of the woodwork. What have you got? What do you play? Gear, effects, amps? Let's hear it!
Myself, I have a 12 string Krappy touchstyle beast. Left handed like my bad self, and tuned in the classic inverted fifths tuning. It has a GK-3 pickup which I run through a GR-33. I play usually through an EBS microbass and use a select few effcts in an attempt to sound like Tony Levin.
Reason being is my ongoing university project is a King Crimson tribute band... mental.
Really keen to know what other stickists use in the preamp department, as it's something that is becoming an issue for me. (The SFX SP2 is high on my list, but I'm looking around for any and all solutions.)
Now, back to ConstruKction of Light...
