    Hello,

    I will get a DV Mark little jazz amplifier (did not yet recieve it) for my jazzbox.

    I'd like to know if I anyone tried a nylon string guitar with it.

    I found this video on Youtube

    Ah, that's the coveted red trim model. I wanted one, but all that was available was black trim. I don't currently own a nylon-string guitar, but I don't see why it wouldn't sound good with one.

    I haven’t plugged my Yamaha SLG200N into my DVMLJ yet, but now you have me curious...

    The wife has rather low end Ibanez electro classical. I have played it a couple times through my LJ. Not bad at all, at least with that guitar it sounded better than I expected. Makes me want to get a Godin nylon.

    I've tried it, at home, with a Godin Multiac Nylon. Not great, not terrible. Old strings and the guitar is stuffed with foam (to reduce a remarkable vulnerability to feedback).

    Interesting.

    Ok I plugged my Yamaha SLG200N into the DV Mark Little Jazz to see how it sounds. I wasn’t hugely impressed - it was pretty mid-range-y to my ears. I twiddled a bit with knobs on the amp and on the guitar and got a reasonable tone but still not all that inspiring. Then I plugged in to my Yamaha THR10 and it sounded quite a bit better to me. I didn’t have to do as much knob twiddling to get something fairly decent (again, to my ears). Neither of them sounded like a Ramirez being played by Segovia. But then, a Yamaha silent practice guitar is not a Ramirez and lord knows I am not Segovia. At the risk of ridicule, I have uploaded sound files of yours truly playing through both amps. I mic’d them with an Audio Technica AT4050 through the pretty pristine mic pre on my Yamaha AG06. (As you tell, I’m a fan of Yamaha gear.) I suppose if you are listening to these on the speaker of a cell phone they may not sound all that different.... Headphones should help.

    Thanks for the interesting replies.
    Meanwhile I got the little jazz and had a try on it. Sounds great with my Ibanez PM200 and surprisingly well with my Raimundo Bossa Nova 3 with a fishman classic 3 preamp. I mean it's not the real acoustic sound of the guitar (btw the Raimundo is a great guitar with shorter scale-length 640 mm) but like someone said a full midrange sound. I had the opportunity to compare it to a bose sytem L1 and I wasn't convinced, too much piezo sound. If I should describe the sound I'd say it sounds a bit like Pat Metheny, Our spanish love songs on the album Beyond The Missouri Sky (which I like). I'll try to post some sound samples in the next days.

    Cheers

    Did you see the DV Mark 801P ? It looks like a Little Jazz with a tweeter added. (I have not researched it in detail.)

    I agree, the sound of the Yamaha is much more natural. Thanks for the post !

    So, here is a little soundsample : 1 piezo 2 natural.wav - Google Drive
    What do you think about the sound ?
