The Great Equalizer

In this post we’ll look at EQ - the history of its development as a sound modifier and its use in an acoustic guitar context. Originally, equalizers were designed to smooth out frequency response anomalies anywhere in an audio chain, whether it be a microphone (or pickup), a recording device like a vinyl disc-cutting machine or tape recorder, or a loudspeaker system. Other simple types of EQ are still being used as “tone controls,” the most common being the passive treble cut tone control found in guitars and tube amps.

Found Sound: Brundlefly and the Swede

In 2010, Matthew Kohnle and Jason Socci (previously of DAYBED) secluded themselves in a cabin outside of Asheville, NC. With acoustic guitars in hand, they gave themselves a single mission: write and record. Three years later we can enjoy the fruits of their labor, Cabin Music; the duo’s first LP under the moniker of Brundlefly and the Swede.
