Cornelius uses the YellowBlender
Statement: "The yellow blender from Schertler acts as the centerpiece of my Sound processing. Gives me the possibility to mix the pickup and the microphone together so that I have an ideal setup to find the optimal cello sound. The preamp delivers a clear, honest and powerful sound. There are two separately adjustable 4-band EQs as well as further tools (low-cut in the PU-way and Notch filter in the micro-path). A feature that I find ideal is the additional effect loop that allows me to insert effects into the signal chain and add it separately to the original signal. All in all: Exactly what I was looking for !! A great device!"
