I have  AKG 391 mics> Lunatec V3 Pre A-D> Marantz PMD671>8GB Compact
Flash which give me 4 hours of 24bit 96KHz recording. I am learning to
Mix/Master/Post in Adobe Audition (Cool Edit Pro) . I also have a
small "stealth"kit DPA4061 micro omnis>DPA's MMA6000 Pre
A-D>Microtrack2496>same 8GB card (it shares time with the camera too).
I just pulled a show in Philly last weekend of a friends band from LA
that I am trying to resample and track now.
My wife and I started taking lessons last year (everyone we know and
hang with plays...and we love music!!)and bought the HD 28V (my first
guitar) and a 000C 16GTE for her. 3 months later we "found" the
Marquis and was just blown away by the difference in sound. I thought
the wider nut would make it easier to learn on (jury still out on
that) but I just traded the HD-28V for a Taylor 714ce . The Marquis
has a 1 3/4" nut and wider spacing at the bridge than the HD (1
11/16"nut) but they both have the modified V neck. The Marquis also
has the Adirondack Top and Bracing...The Golden Era D-28 had Brazilian
Rosewood back/side s. East Indian Rosewood, and I think that is the
only difference between it and the D-28 Marquis (which would add about
10K to the price). The D-18GE series has a Mahogany Side/Back and
Brazillian headplate but I think they are similar to the Marquis
otherwise.It was neat to hear the difference between the HD and the
Marquis and also a regular D-28. Anyway I started playing my wife's
000C and found the low oval neck makes it much easier to play (learn)
barre chords so that is why I traded the HD (I think I will keep the
Marquis(es) forever ( I have the Natural and wife has the Sunburst),
it is just an awesome instrument and with practice, I will be able to
do it justice some day). I saw where you were at Jammin' Java, we go
there alot and record. Let me know if you head back to the DC area, we
would love to see you!!
