The Essential Ken B Jammen

Ken – Solo Gig.

April 18th, 2015

Today (04/18/2015) I get to share a stage with some legendary players.

DON’T FORGET…THIS WEEKEND…. THIS SATURDAY NIGHT…. Help to celebrate the 41st anniversary of The Overflowing Cup Total Life Center – Time to Reminisce and enjoy Cake, Fellowship and Music. Playing the concert will be Glenn Kaiser from Jesus People USA in Chicago, IL. and Ken Wagman and Joseph Ravitts. Ken Wagman may not be as well known; however, his talent on the guitar is unprecedented. Ken is a family man from the Stateline area and plays with other bands such as Days of Awe. He plays at The Overflowing Cup Christian Coffeehouse since 1974 several times a year. Jospeh Ravitts played at The Overflowing Cup in 1974 and 1975 while with a popular group called “Knights Of The Lord’s Table.” You definitely won’t want to miss this awesome evening of music. Tell your friends NOT to miss this Special Night.

Don’t be confused, buffers are not inert.

Don’t be confused and think that a buffer in your signal chain has to always be good.  A decent line buffer will not generally color your tone and will help your signal get from your guitar to your amp in a decent manner.  But what about what it does besides that?

Think about it this way, a buffer increases the volume of your signal.  As your signal goes through the chain, some of it is lost, and if you planned it right, you are at the same volume at the end.

What about things in the chain that are effected by volume, like effects.  Most effects will clip if given a too hot signal.  Buffers will affect how your effects sound.  If you need a buffer, play around with it in different positions in your chain.  If it is at the start, will it color your other effects.  If it is at the end, will you still suffer from tone loss?

 

Think about it.
