Cliff Henricksen suggested that I try these settings for my Larrivée and Morgan Guitars.

ToneMatch® Preset Acoustic Guitars/Flat A Guitar zEQ
  • ToneMatch® Preset
    • Category: Acoustic Guitars - Bypass or
    • Preset: Flat, A. Guitar zEQ
Para EQ — -10dB / 500 Hz / 2.0 Oct
  • Para EQ
    • Level -10 dB
    • Freq 500 Hz
    • Width 2.0 oct


It sounds so very simple - but the Guitars both sound absolutely stunning!

As a matter of interest, the Larrivée has an iMix no-cut system and the Morgan has a passive Fishman.

It should be no surprise that these settings work so well for both of these instruments. They are very similar. The body shape and size are the standard Larrivée "L" body.

They do sound different when I compare one to the other, but they both benefit from settings - retaining their individual character and sounding far more like their unamplified voices.

Prior to using the settings Cliff recommended I did this.

Morgan with passive Fishman under saddle piezo pickup that sounds stunning with the

  • Classic Taylor ToneMatch® preset #90 (Dreadnought Finger-Style).
  • For a lighter sound I use the T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine
