New Beard Guitar Vids

The Beard Boys have a bunch of new vids up . Most were taken in their Booth at IBMA and show Jerry D and a bunch of players demoing the Aura system through the new Fishman "Solo" array. Also, check out the Stacy Phillips "lesson". Cool

The Rose with Harp & Dobro using only Fishman/Aura

3:06 minutes (2.84 MB)

I noticed after uploading that the audio is distorted even though my orginal is not. I tried uploading again and again and keep getting error messages to enter Artist and Tile as required fields, even though the Artist and Title are listed. So sorry, the site will not allow me to upload again to replace the audio file.


My wife and I did a duet at a wedding this past Saturday. During the wedding we played this audio clip, the Rose on Harp and Dobro. I thought some of you might be interested in the sound of the Fishman / Aura. I'm using my Brazillian Rosewood-Spruce Meredith.  I did not use a mic at all.  Fishman > Aura > J48 Di > Mackie Mixer > Inear Monitor Transmitter >  Zoom H2.

Fishman Aura Pickup Installation and Report

I have recently started playing in a band with keyboards and drums, and decided that I'd like to have a better-sounding rig than my old Mc-Feather that I had Tim install when I bought my maple Scheerhorn. It was "OK" when used with a Baggs Para-Acoustic DI, but after hearing JerryD use the full Aura system, I knew I wanted better than "OK".

So, I decided to try the Aura stomp-box with the Mc-Feather, just to see if it might give reasonable results without having to alter my guitar's setup. I know Billy Cardine is using the Aura pedal with a Schertler Basik pickup. Unfortunately, the sound I got with the Feather>Aura Pedal>Baggs was worse than just Feather>Baggs. So, I decided to break down and get the full Aura setup, by installing the Aura pickup in one of my 'horns.

Jerry Douglas and band played a great CD release party set at the Bohemian Cafe in Greenville, SC and then signed copies of the new CD, Glide at Horizon Records right afterwards. This was the opening tune, Wild Rumpus.  [It's my understanding that JD was fully Aura enabled for this gig  -bd]
