Krispen Hartung's Gear


Godin Freeway SA

The Freeway Classic became Godin’s most popular model almost immediately following its release. Critics admired the Freeway’s, “expensive custom guitar looks” and “big, balanced sound”. Grabbing the satin-finished, rock maple neck is akin to sliding into your favourite sneakers. But aside from great looks and feel the Freeway scores high marks in the guitar/workhorse department. The hum-single-hum configuration of the Godin pickups produce a broad spectrum of tones, including; big humbucker crunch, wailing Blues, and clean chime-like sounds—to name a few. The Freeway SA (synth access) takes all of the versatility of the Freeway Classic and adds synth/computer access via a built-in 13-pin connector, courtesy of the revolutionary Ghost pickup system installed in the bridge. The Ghost system is made in Canada and uses a proprietary harmonic dampening system that results in superb tracking. Godin’s pioneering designs in guitars with synth access have led the industry and the Freeway continues the tradition establishing new benchmarks for response, ease-of-use and affordability.

Schertler "David" Acoustic Amplifier

THE POWERFUL LITTLE "GIANT-KILLER" FROM SCHERTLER !

Following the tremendously positive reaction in Europe and the US from dealers and players to the UNICO, Schertler is pleased to introduce David, a more compact acoustic instrument combo amplifier. Featuring the same high attention to quality and sound, David is perfect for the artist requiring only two input channels.

From preamplifiers to loudspeakers, all components were selected for their natural and accurate response. Two power amps with an active crossover supply 50 watts to the 6” woofer and 30 watts to the 1” dome tweeter. The result is velvety, clear harmonics with a controlled, strong low end (down to 40 Hz). The technology of biamplification produces a very transparent sound as well a providing maximum efficiency by properly matching amplifiers to loudspeakers.

In addition, each power amplifier features limiter circuitry to deliver secure speaker protection. Amplifiers are built with bipolar transistors (no MOS-FET) and are powered by a robust, traditional power supply (toroidial transformer).

David’s innovative CLASS-A circuitry and built-in analog spring reverberation deliver the warm, smooth and musical sound that acoustic musicians have been seeking. Whether your instrument is guitar or violin, mandolin or cello, listen to your playing through David. You’ll be amazed!
