  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So I've got a Fender American HH Stratocaster, with the usual Alder Body, Maple Neck, and Rosewood fretboard. It came equipped with these Fender branded "Sidewinder" and "Black Cobra" humbuckers, which sounds OK. I'm thinking of picking up a new set of pickups and obviously the options are...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'd like to change the bridge humbucker in my ash (and maple neck with rosewood fretboard) Robin Medley, which is BRIGHT as hell. After doing a bit of research (I'm no pickup guru), first thing to do would be to go alnico instead of ceramic, me thinks. I've always been a Duncan guy, but I am...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Anyone else pick any of these up? I got a free set from the promotional giveaway they had a couple days ago and strung my Rhoads up with them today. To me they seem like the standard bright ass strings that D'Addario puts out, not that that's a bad thing though. Supposedly they're a higher...

    Yeah, the X2N is way too bright for my Indo Jackson of Doom. :lol: I'd like to trade it for a sweet, glorious Blaze if anyone has one kicking around.
  5. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Thinking about a change in my Suhr again - I like how the Rebel Yells sound, but theyre' really not all that hot, at all, meaning I have to push the Rectfier's preamp gain further than it likes, and I've got them adjusted about as close to the strings as I can get away with. They kill for lower...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm beginning to notice that my 'jamming' patches aren't translating well to live band settings, and I'm just getting washed out. Last night I turned the gain down, and added some mids/high end, but now I'm sounding rather bright and I'm not sure that's a good thing. Any tips/rules of thumb/ways...
  7. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I love my new Gibson Les Paul Custom but as is quite common with them, it can be rather bright. The stock neck pickup I actually love, it has an almost 'open wah' quality to it with a bit of a 'quack' too. So I want to leave that where it is ideally. However the bridge pickup is way too bright...

  11. General Music Discussion
    Saw these guys open for I Mother Earth a couple weeks ago, and they blew me away. Basically, 70s throwback kind of sound, with 3 front men. The bassist, guitarist, and keyboardist are all awesome singers, and the songwriting and musicianship are stellar. I bought their album and it's awesome...

    ...How the hell could this movie be made? No matter the endless onslaught of terrible horror movies, I always have to wonder how things like this one get made. Just reading the plot setup made me laugh uncontrollably. Someone at some point read this script and said: "hey this is awesome! I'm...
