Clearsonic - a transparent solution for an age-old problem
Matthew S., 02.03.2014
As I am sure most of you are aware, this product is synonymous with a certain Mr Bonamassa.
Joe is probably one the most YouTube'd guitarists out there and, of the huge amount of footage that I've seen, only once have I watched him play live without his trusty acrylic baffle.
If you're a fan, you will also probably have noticed that Mr B has 200w of cranked Marshall / D-type amplification pumping out what must be around 120db+ at any one time - even in an intimate gigging environment! So, given that Joe still seems to have perfectly good ears and the musicians around him do not appear to be flinching in disapproval, one can only assume that these Clearsonic products must be doing something pretty darn special.
Convinced by what I had seen, I purchased a combo-sized Clearsonic from Thomann and the results have been nothing short of a revelation!
Now, the important thing to remember with these is they they do not absorb or reduce sound - they do something much more useful. The diffuse and disperse it. This means that your amp is no longer firing a 'death ray' past the back of your knees and directly at the sound guys head!
The sound from your amp simply radiates in a harmlessly upward & outward filling the stage space thus sparing the front row, the sound guy's sanity and furnishing you with an excellent monitoring environment.
I would recommend Clearsonic if any of the following apply to you.
1) You like to crank the volume/master on any amp over 5w 2) You're asked to turn down regularly on stage 3) You play live in intimate environments 4) You practice amplified at home with small children in close proximity 5) You value your hearing
I have owned my Clearsonic for a number of weeks and it is an indispensable part of my rig. I will be ordering more sizes soon - particularly now I know I can finally blow the dust off my 100 watters :)
