Was just wondering: what do you guys with a Piezo-equipped guitar use? My Ibanez with a Piezo bridge and built-in preamp has two outputs, one for the normal magnetic pickups and one for the Piezo. The magnetic out as usual goes to a DI-Box and into the audio interface, to be then treated with Thermionik and Recabinet. The Piezo as well to a DI and to the interface, but do you guys use anything on top ITB? like a dedicated acoustic amp sim (?) or a clean electric amp?

Plug it into a JC-120 emulation, add some compression and reverb, boom - done.

I know 3 sigma audio have 'acoustic impulses' to be used on acoustic guitars with pickups or simple preamps. Don't know what it will do for a piezo signal but you could see the demos for yourself. Didn't try or use them so no feedback to give.

The one time (yes, once) that i had to work with that, it was a simple pickup in an epiphone acoustic guitar and I plugged it into the acoustic mode of my THR10 which has a single 'mic model' for acoustic guitars.

I was hoping for a JC 120 emulation from Kazrog in the future... ;-)

I can recommend the 3SA acoustic impulses, too.

Yep, 3sigma acoustic impulses are also a way to go.

As a fan of The Cure's early work, this is my #1 amp wish right now :-)
