Subject: RE: Headway HE4 - comments
I like the Headways. I have a Snake 2 in my Mugen 6 string and a Snake 3 in my Mugen 12 string and I think I have one in one of my Hagstrom J45s, and ALL of them get good reactions from soundmen and audience. I also like the I-beam for sound but it is very feedback prone. I'm kind of inclined to think that in a plugged situation one is looking for a slightly "larger-than-life" sound on the guitar and that a wholly accurate mic sounds less subjectively good in most cases than a bit of colour in the right places.

DI boxes are a bit subjective too but IMHO it's really all about input impedance: the more the better!
