Cheap SX Reso1 from Rondo Music - stock except for strings (D'addario Phosphor Bronze Resphonic)
This time with a better mic (Blue Yeti) and captured video with a Nikon D5100. Running direct into Audacity with no effects. Playing is still a little sloppy....and I can't tell whether that low rumble in the background is from the guitar or the mic.....i couldn't really hear it when i was playing.
Pretty nice. I must say that reso sounds very nice for a real cheap one. I've often wondered what they sound like and like I said it sounds very nice and your playing very nice as well. Thanks for posting that.
Thanks for the kind words.....it doesn't have a whole lot of bass response. Also the bass that it does produce tends to get really distorted when you dig into notes. I'm looking to upgrade it really soon but it's been a lovely starter instrument.
Really nice playing. The instrument, not good but not altogether awful.Was it hard to sync the video and recording? I haven't tried it yet. I use the Blue Yeti as well and it is outstanding. I opted for Reaper instead of Audacity but the difficulty of syncing should be comparable.
I actually used Windows Live movie maker......i opened the video and then added the music track recorded with the blue. The video already had sound so i just offset the audio only track until it got really close and then muted the camera audio. the i added a fade in and it screwed everything up again! so it's a little off but pretty darn close
Wow Kool !!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for the information. I know it can be done in Audacity and most likely Reaper but the time to learn how becomes problematic. Your solution is relatively easier, I am sure and it looks, like i said just fine. Thank you for sharing the information.
I've got a roundneck SX and I love it. I alternate between playing it spanish style and lap style with a riser on the nut. It does play very nicely, but you're right about the lack of bass response. It also doesn't push a super huge amount of volume, but it has a nice vintage sounding tone to it. I've had it for three years now and I haven't =upgraded any of it at all.
Not bad at all Aaron. Especially when you consider the price that SX reso isn't a bad way to start out playing. I've been looking at Rondo Music for a while. Their Agile Les Paul copies get great reviews, I'm considering buying one, waiting on a Root Beer flame or Quilted Maple with a wide neck to become available.
