I'm listening to Dave Van Ronk's On Air. Man, his guitar really pops. The sound is so deep, so resonating. I know the crew for the album is german. But still, I associate the sound with American sound technicians. What do they do to make that miracle guitar sound, live? I'm talking mostly blues and folk. Never heard something like that in Europe! What are the techniques, the equipment, the setup?
