NEW DIAGRAM of Jonny’s Guitar setup by Adam Cooper from GuitarGeek!
I served as a contributor for the diagram, directly offering advice on Jonny’s setup. It’s a great improvement on the older one; the signal chain is 100%!
I must admit that I disagree about the versions of the EHX Small Stone (Cooper chose a V4, whereas in 1997 Jonny used a V2) and Demeter Tremulator (Jonny uses the older prototype “The Tremulator”), but those are artistic decisions which I totally respect (similar to his decision to draw Jonny’s Tele in its current distinctive condition, rather than less worn and without the Honda Motorcycle sticker as it was in 1997). Plus, everything else is spot on, so I really can’t complain!
Overall, it’s a really great diagram, and it’ll give anyone an excellent understanding of how Jonny organizes his gear and how he uses it!
Jonny’s Ondes Musicales* settings for his performance of his Suite from There Will Be Blood tomorrow at the Roundhouse in London.
He’s only using the Onde waveform (Jonny’s favorite), which is simply a sine wave, and the D1 (Principal) and D2 (Résonance) diffuseurs. The Principal is a more usual loudspeaker, while the Résonance adds stretched strings which generate reverberation (though not exactly like a traditional spring reverb). Jonny seems to have used his Palme diffuseur on the original soundtrack, so it will be interesting to hear how this sounds in comparison. Since the Palme adds resonance, I would expect it to sound closer to a pure sine, though the other diffuseurs will add their own character.
*I refer to the new run of Dierstein-built Ondes Martenot as Ondes Musicales.
