  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hi, does someone here uses a downtuned guitar using thicker string gauges (like D'addario EXL148 or similar)? Can someone post a pic of the nut with a similar setup? I've ordered a new guitar incl. a setup for drop c from a (well know) guitar shop and I'm not really happy with the results. It's...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Anybody have any experience with Buzz Feiten or Earvana? I'm getting sick of intonation issues on my guitars with normal nuts. True Temperament would be cool, but I can't really justify spending $700 on a guitar neck that I would only use for recording albums to not risk any fretwear... Since...
  3. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I imagine this has to be a technique thing, because I can pluck the string as hard as I want with my thumb, and there's no buzz here. However, when using pretty much any pick, I get a bit of buzz, however it's not generally audible through the speaker, usually. What am I doing wrong here? See...

    Hi there guy, not sure if this is the right place but here I go, I have a fairly new JS22-7 and overall I'm kinda happy with it, the only thing that bugs me is the fret buzz, it is present everywhere, in some places the buzz is really loud, in others is not that loud but I think sometimes is...

    Hi Guys, I've just got myself a gorgeous American Special Strat that is lovely and perfect in every way imaginable except one... fret buzz! I'm not very experienced at set-ups, but even I can tell that the action on it out the box was waaay too low. I fixed that, but it still buzzed. Fixed the...

    Melvins Jeez, Buzz pulls out all the stops and didn't hold back here. :eek:
  8. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'm having a some trouble with open string buzz on my guitar it happens on the 7th , 6th , and 4th (the 4th is the worse is sound very flappy almost like someone is slapping a bass string) I looked into this and a common solution I've seen for this problem is "shim" the nut. How would I go about...
  9. Music: Recording Studio
    Greetings I just picked up a pair of Yamaha HS80M monitors but have been greeted with crazy buzz/hum when swapping them into my setup. It seems that everything electrical affects it, too. I have swapped over every cable, tried every power socket and combo I can think of and while the hum does...

    My Suhr 7 is rather unhappy with the 68 low B, and I'm trying to sort out why before taking it apart. The other 6 strings are fine, the action is great and I have almost perfect relief in the neck. That said, the low B string chokes out from 12-24. I've tried tentatively raising the bridge...
  11. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hi all, I recently picked up a Loomis Sig used as my first 7 but unfortunately the original owner liked his action touching the roof. I have set up every guitar i own with comfortable action and no buzz through a clean channel however this one is proving tricky. The top 6 strings (EADGBe) are...
  12. Music: Other Instruments
    So I was looking at some MTD's, and I noticed this: MTD Kingston KZ 6-String Fretless Bass | GuitarCenter has a buzz feiten tuning thingy on it. Is it just as pointless as I think it is? Are they just doing this so they don't have to use different nuts on the fretted and fretless models? Am I...

    So a bit of back story... I'm making some beef jerky and ran out of room in the dehydrator, so I happened to have some sliced up flank steak left over. Hmm, what could I do with this? I'm kind of hungry... Lets see what I can scrounge up. These should do quite nicely. Starting the water...
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I tried a ton of things and cant find the solution. its not the guitar, its not the cables and its not the amp. another guitarist came over and had the same problem. we unplugged the air conditioner, we clicked of the dimmer switch in the basement. nothing worked. its definitely some type of...
