  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hello all! Been away for a while. We moved into a condo and I pretty much said good bye to all my heads/cabs. I bought BIAS FX2, Amp and Pedal. I'm running it through an older Scarlet into my desktop and it works great (after I updated the driver). I've monkeyed around with the tone cloud...
  2. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Any advise on installing a Floyd Rose locking nut on a new build? I've only ever used typical nuts (bone, graphite, plastic, etc.) In most cases, I can file it down and use a feeler gauge as a "safe edge" filing down until the nut slots are perfect. Seems like it would be tough to do that...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Ola reviews the Dimebag MXD pedal: Ola decides the pedal sucks. Ola's fanbase think that he's wrong and offer suggestions to remedy the situation. Ola tries the suggestions: That was art. :lol:
  4. Music: Recording Studio
    Ive been recording for a few years now. All I've been using is the emulated out on my HT-100 Metal directly into my interface and into GarageBand. Needles to say, I'm not getting the best guitar tone in my recordings. Meanwhile I've got a mid 90's dual recto sitting in the room collecting...
  5. General Music Discussion
    ... I imagine this will get messy, however, from my recent interactions with various members on this forum, it appears to be a great place to seek advice. I prefer those answering to be seasoned musicians from working bands or having played in bands performing original music. If you wish to...
  6. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I was headed home from practicing yesterday evening and had my amp and guitars in the car, anyway I went in to visit a friend and stupidly left them in the car which got broken into so I've lost my Epiphone Explorer and Ibanez RG :mad: I have a gig next week and I can't afford to replace them...
  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hey guys - Picked up a G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy (singlecoil bridge, humbucker neck) and I'm experiencing a bit of feedback on the B string. It's possible that I'm too close to the amp and it's possible that channel 2 on the Lonestar will just do this on a Tele style guitar - channel one...
  8. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    The majority of interest in a guitar that I have for sale has come from outside of the E.U., but due to the presence of a rosewood fingerboard it has become clear that it is going to be difficult to export. Has anyone here in the UK had much experience\success when exporting guitars with...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Added a Choke to 6505 MH A member on a 6505 group im in on fb just posted a video of his 6505mh with a choke added. Ive been curious about doing this for awhile and he sent me the info on how to do it and what choke hes using. My question is do you think its worth doing the mod? Im not unhappy...
  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I've been GASing HARD for a Mark series amp for a while now, but I've been indecisive on what to buy. My choices keep flopping between the III, IV, and JP2C. I've been eyeing the III the most, but I gotta be real, the JP2C would be pretty killer. However, it's pretty expensive, and given I...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Considering purchasing a new ESP guitar. Asking here before calling a retailer in hopes of getting a "different" perspective. Looking at the following models: M-400 M-1000 M-II Series I have 2 questions: Practically speaking, what is the difference? How do the Kirk Hammett models fit in...
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I am shitty at mixing and cannot make guitars sound tight and up front. So what did I do? I tried different pickups and there it was Irongear Steam Hammer... Tightest pickup I've ever tried. It sort of "redeemed" the issue, but probably from the wrong angle! I know tons of albums that are...
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Ever since I picked up my Les Paul DC (double cutaway,) I've been in love with it. I drooled over this guitar for a year before talking to the previous owner. It's a gorgeous guitar, I beefed it up with a pickup change to '57 and '57 Plus and I love the tone. I only have one issue with it...
  14. Music: Recording Studio
    Recently I've been writing some (pretty rudimentary and sloppy) death metal, and I've been having so much fun with it that I want to invest some money in getting my stuff to sound better and turning them into complete songs. I've set aside about 600 bucks to pick up an interface, a mic for...
  15. Music: Other Instruments
    Hey guys, I am new to vocals of any kind but I really like the sound of Death Metal style vocals so that's what I have been working on these passed few weeks. I have little time to practice, only when driving, since that's when I am in a place where I won't bother people when I am not driving my...
  16. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I've just picked up a strat body as I've never owned one and decided to put together a partscaster and I need some advice from you fine chaps on trems. The spacing on the screws is 56mm (which I think is US vintage spec) and I don't fancy a 6 point trem. I was going to get a gotoh 510 style...
  17. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've watched a few YouTube vids, and I'm confident I can fix it myself. My issue is it's only cracked part way through. It's not completely snapped off. I put a fair amount of pressure on the end of the headstock to see if I can open the gap big enough to get some glue in there, but the carack...
  18. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Ive been playing piano for 1 year now and im on bar 14 of moonlight sonata mv 1. If there's anyone here that can play it on piano too id like to know any insight that you've learned from it. I play on mastering this on, moving on to mv 2 and then spending 20 years on mv 3.
  19. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I just nabbed a like-new Avatar 2x12 with V30's in a trade, and knew the time had come to finally get one. Supposed to be here Monday!
  20. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    ...and Dave says I never buy new gear, so: Should be here Monday. :yesway:
