She probably sold copies of the video of the Mio Ricebowl incident to earn some cash :P

Lightbulb Tsumugi keyboard amplifier

I have seen that nobody yet found out what Keyboard amplifier Mugi-chan uses.....So in the view that I have a keyboard and I'm playing for a band this made me interested in finding out Mugi's recommendation someday I'll buy it or at least a model under. I think it's the best used live at school.

It's a high profile Roland amplifier special for keyboards. It's the top model in ints class, check it out:

Roland KC-880

http://www.rolandus.com/products/pro...90&ParentId=33

* Flagship stereo keyboard amplifier with five channels of stereo input
* 320-watt stereo power amplifier, 12-inch woofers and two horn tweeters
* DSP effects (Reverb, Chorus, Tremolo, Rotary)
* Flexible I/O (XLR mic input, stereo XLR line outputs, headphone out), Stereo Link for chaining multiple KC-880s

Mugi undoubtely has good taste, and ojou-sama's budget!


See an actual picture from K-on for proof

I do agree that Mugi's keyboard should be the 76-key one, I own a keyboard with 76-keys and the proportion seems more like this.

I don't really know if this was brought up, but in the preview of episode 12, Mio is seen wearing an AKG K701 (spankin' phones, I must say):

Spoiler for Mio's K701:


Spoiler for AKG K701:


Now that's all well and good, up until the point of usage. The 701 has pretty high impedance, and it really needs an amplifier and a DAC to function to its full power. I don't see Mio using anything like that. If it were a desktop, I could assume that she had an Asus Xonar Essence STX or HT Omega Claro Halo (or Halo XT) (They're soundcards built around headphone usage, and has an amp and a DAC in them).

The K701 is also known for being picky about amps, and there aren't many that have good synergy with it (although I suppose that's a subjective opinion). Tube amps usually go better with AKG, but some prefer solid state amps. Personally, I'd go for a hybrid like the Head-Direct EF1 or something.

Another thing is that since she's playing from a computer, it reduces a lot of choices for amps, since you'll need a USB amp (3.5mm jacks don't really cut it), like the iBasso D10 or something.

But hey, Mio has excellent taste in headphones. Excellent taste. Hi five, girl, hi five.

The lack of Vox amplifiers make me sad ;~;

It would have been awesome if the Red Special at least had some mention

I wonder what Yui's guitar is (the version I mean, I already know that it's a Gibson Les Paul Cherry Burst Standard)... but I'm not sure about the year...)

I'm also looking for cheaper models (but of the same look-a-like copy of Yui's Guitar)

Since the manga started back in 2007, it must be a 2007 build Standard, the later 2008 versions, aka 2008 Les Paul Standard, have a different design.
If you want a less expensive copy, you can try the asian build ones either from Epiphone, Tokai, Agile or Vintage. To find the visually closes model, you have to do the homework yourself. One thing people offen miss out is to check the shape of the headstock, wich basically gives it away, if it is a copy or not.
I could post a picture of my epiphone les paul later on, if you want.

To answer both posts, look no further than the Edwards LP copies.

They are dead ringers for the Les Paul, even the headstock. Edwards is a ESP branch for the Japan only market so if you can find one more power to you or go to Japan or even Ebay. And yes I do own one, and compared the other clones, its the best one

OMG, those edwards are really close to the originals, just had a look www.espguitars.co.jp. I reckon there must be more near 1:1 clones made in japan, but not available to the west, because of those lawsuit from the 70/80's

Actually I more thought of this one instead as the closest to Yui's Guitar:

Spoiler:

http://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/electr...08092611395238

I could ask if they can get me that guitar, if that fails, I'll just have to get the cheaper versions XD

The major difference between the 2008 and the 2007 is the neck profil and the sound. You cannot really spot it from a picture. But yes, if you just want a visually similar guitar to Yui's, either one would be fine.
I just said pre-2008 models just because the manga started in 2007.

Do you have a picture of the 2007 Standard Gibson Les Paul Cherry Burst? (I kinda looked for the one with a visible "Standard" text on the head of the guitar (dunno the guitar terms). Plus there is a white plastic triangle near the hole....

Sorry for interjecting here, but answer me this: are you getting the Les Paul just because of K-On! or is it also because you wish to get a Les Paul for the sounds?

I would have placed this in the "Guitarist's Thread" if it were the latter.

You mean the truss rod cover? They are the same. As for the white platic triangle near the hole, are you talking about the tuners? Never noticed that, but the 2008 have grover tuners, unlike the earlier one, they have the kluson one, with white-yellow plastic buttons.

lol sorry I don't know anything about the guitar terms






Yeah it's 2008 Gibson Les Paul Standard (actually it said Fender instead of Gibson XD)

What's the difference between Standard and Standard Plus Top?

Another question: What's the full model name of Asuza's guitar?

Maybe it's a Gibson Les Paul Standard 1979, because the 2008 don't have the plastic protection under the chords, in 2008 the back is light brown while in the anime is dark brown, the neck in the 2008 series are brown and in the anime is black.
