my effects & amplification

this blog explains the effects and amplification I currently use

digital effects for acoustic instruments

In the past I’ve used large, heavy, rack-mounted and mains-powered effects units but as I now need to fly to perform abroad, all my current equipment is compact and can be battery powered.  I am also a big fan of Boss effects – they are tough, reliable and offer great sounds and high sound quality.

a few more reviews

concert review – solo

“Not easy to categorise; trad material presented with considerable classical skill on guitar and mountain dulcimer, but gently enhanced with technology.  One of his best tricks is to use a long echo and then play a duet with himself.  In other hands this would come over as an amusing gimmick – the effect from Dan is seriously musical.  In demand in the USA for workshops as well as performances, which may give you a hint of what to expect.
