On the Road with Coheed & Cambria

Lessons and Tips

Taylor's Rob Magargal spent two days with alt-prog rockers Coheed and Cambria and their live sound crew to help them dial in their amplified acoustic sound. During their tour rehearsals, Rob worked through every aspect of the band's acoustic signal chain with them, covering the importance of selecting the right Taylor guitar models; the ideal control settings for Taylor's Expression System electronics; the benefits of using Taylor's Balanced Breakout Box to maintain a balanced signal when going through a tuner; and the reasons why the Taylor's K4 Equalizer should be a part of every front-of-house engineer's toolbox.
