PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he checks in at the Kauer Guitars room. In this segment, Doug Kauer of Kauer Guitars shows off his newest prototype of the Double Hollow model. a prototype of his Daylighter hollowbody model. It features a fully-carved Eastern maple back (his Daylighters typically have a flat Spanish cedar back) and a 4" Spanish cedar core block which is attached to the Spanish cedar top. Kauer describes the guitar as having 60-70% more internal volume. Initially, Kauer was disappointed because he was hoping the guitar would be somewhat ES-175-ish, but he was happy to discover the guitar is very much like an ES-335.

Here’s a different way to unleash the beast within your tracks.

Welcome to another Dojo. Last month I explained in detail how to set up and use sidechain compression techniques to get that classic pop/EDM pumping sound on your rhythm guitar parts and other instruments in your mix. This time, we’ll use the same setup techniques but, instead of sidechaining a compressor, I’m going to show you the benefits of using a gate.
