Utilisation exclusive en guitar synthé

Christian P. 654, 18.09.2014
J'utilise un Roland VG-99 depuis quelques années et j'ai remplacé les disgracieux capteurs hexaphoniques Roland par des pontets piezo sur toutes mes guitares.

Je suis designer de profession et je construis mes guitares avec beaucoup de soin pour les besoin de mon ergonomie de jeu; pas de switches, pas de boutons de réglages, simplicité maximale égal poids moindre et prises de tête économisées.

Après avoir acheté plusieurs de ces "Hexpander Preamp", j'aurais aimé que Graphtech développe un produit de traitement des données piezo qui soit nomade, utilisable sur plusieurs guitares, et puis s'affranchir dur lourd et fragile câble 13 broches avec un système sans fil serait bien actuel...

En dehors de ces attentes d'utilisateur exigeant, Graph Tech remplit bien sa fonction; c'est propre.
Attention cependant: il faut être soigneux pour ne pas abimer les composants à l'installation. Au final, tout le système brille par sa discrétion et tout fonctionne parfaitement sur mes quatre guitares équipées.

Je ne parlerai pas de latence, je ne suis pas un sprinter sur manche, je me contente parfaitement des performances offertes par le système. Il faut savoir adapter son jeu au sons utilisés en midi...

Je souhaite vivement que les évolutions techniques évoquées plus haut fassent partie des plans chez Graph Tech...

Eine wirklich sinnvolle Alternative zum GK3

Christian940, 21.09.2015
Ich habe mir das Hexpander Kit gekauft, da ich mit der Lösung GK-3 -> Gitarrensynthie nicht zufrieden war. Es liegt weder an der Qualität noch an der Latenz des GK-3. Es ist eine solide Lösung, aber für mich die Falsche. Der GK-3 an meinen Tune-o-matic-ausgerüsteten Gitarren beeinträchtigte die Spielmechanik erheblich. Weiterhin war das ganze Ding unhandlich und die Gitarre wurde die meiste Zeit nicht gespielt. Jetzt ist das anders. Zusammen mit der Resomax-Piezo-Bridge hab ich die Lösung, die ich eigentlich gesucht hab: Kein Aufsteck-Dingens, kein verändertes Spielgefühl zum "Magnet-Betrieb", ordentlicher Palm-Mute-Sound im COSM-Betrieb des GR-55.

Die Verarbeitung ist gut und die beiliegende Anleitung ist ausreichend, wenn auch an der ein oder anderen Stelle irreführend. Auch das Template für die Aussparung der neuen Jackplate mit dem 13-Pin-Anschluss ist falsch dimensioniert und dadurch leider unbrauchbar. Das gibt Abzüge in Bedienung und Verarbeitung. Das fehlende Mag-to-7-Pin-Kabel gibt Abzüge bei den Features, da das der GK-3 hatte. Zur Erklärung: dieses Kabel ermöglicht die Verbindung des normalen Pickup-Schaltkreises mit dem Schaltkreis des Hexpanders. Was bringt das, fragen sich jetzt einige.

Die Antwort: Es ermöglicht das Signal der magnetischen Pickups über das 13-Pin-Kabel zu führen und dann am Guitar-Out des Synthies abzugreifen, um es dem Amp zuzuführen. Dadurch spielt man an der Gitarre _nur_ mit dem 13-Pin-Kabel und kann auf beide Betriebsarbeiten zugreifen. Btw, erst dadurch bekommt der beiliegende Mini-Switch erst seinen Sinn. Er schaltet nämlich zwischen "normale PUs", "normale PUs + Hexpander" und "Hexpander only". Eigentlich cool, aber was bringt das, wenn man keine Verbindung des Hexpanders und den normalen PUs out of the box hat. Themaverfehlung, vor allem, weil das Kabel hier bei Thomann nicht bestellt werden kann.

Ansonsten:
- man muss viel Zeit und ein bisschen handwerkliches Geschick samt ordentlichem Werkzeug (Forstnerbohrer, Dremel, Schraubstock, Schraubzwingen, Stechbeitel, ....) mitbringen.
- man braucht vieeeeeel Platz im E-Fach (ca. 10 x 5 cm), um alles unterzubringen (viele Kabel, die Platine, die Jackplate samt Buchse).

Und jetzt das WICHTIGSTE (gilt nur für den Tune-o-Matic-Use Case):

!!! Die Gitarre braucht ne Masseleitung vom Tailpiece, um sie am Hexpander-Volume-Poti anzulöten !!!

Andernfalls brummts. Wer ne Masseleitung von der Brigde hat, dürfte hier in Schwierigkeiten geraten, da die Piezo-Elemente Kunststoffböckchen sind.

Alles in allem war es aber eine lohnende, wenn auch kostspielige Investition.
