  1. Music: Recording Studio
    So I have a lot of new guitar stuff going on like using a modeler and trying to learn reaper a bit. Had an issue where my guitar would randomly sound fizzy and I was getting a lot of artifacts. I also had a lot of noise issues. So I tried a bunch of different stuff - swapped cables, restated...
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So for some time, I've played on my 6505+ 120 watt head. Now there's nothing wrong with the amp or the way it sounds but... I honestly think I'm outgrowing this tone. I haven't really been inspired to play through it much and I feel bad because it's been an amazing amp, just not a sound that I...

    I had an Orange 1x12 with a v30 in it, it ended up sounding surprisingly bad. So I sold it in lieu of a proper Mesa with a C90, and now all is well. :metal: #blackcabsmatter

    I traded off my Rhoads for this nifty Japanese market RG550 and cash and its in remarkably good shape for being 30 years old. These ones had the matched color headstock. It goes a little weird blue in the right light. The measurements of the neck are identical to the ones i got from my RG770...

    (AKA Floyd appreciation thread*) You can have your stoptails, hipshots and evertunes, but a guitar without a floyd is just not as fun, a guitar without a floyd is like a burger without cheese, sure, burger tastes good, but it could just be so much better. Personally, every single guitar I've...
  6. General Music Discussion
    I'm sure some of you have seen the drummer here (Nyango Star) because at least one video of him went viral on Twitter and Instagram- "When you're overqualified for the job...". Anyways, this came up in my YouTube feed. :lol:
  7. General Music Discussion
    THIS is the Billy Corgan I like. I don't even like Smashing Pumpkins, like at all, but when he's just talking shop and articulating his needs from his gear, and where he's coming from tonally, he's a super interesting guy to listen to.
  8. MG.ORG Status Updates
    My old man eyes are having issues with the odd font choice that's set in since I updated to Mojave. I dug through the settings in both my forum profile and Safari, but still can't get it back to the way it was before. The quoted font is what's "normal" for me (starting with "I've been...

    Not exactly the happiest with the media player installed on our smart TV, and I'm wondering if there's an easy way to install another one. Has anyone done this, or do I need to go find/buy an HDMI cable and hope my macbook plays ball?
  10. MG.ORG Status Updates
    MG, TLDR: You can all still blame Drew for everything, and you can all stop nagging me when the server goes down. The upside of this is that you won’t have to hear me complain about fixing it anymore, huzzah! Long version: Remember that time I sold a forum to a guy that replaced the whole mod...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    As some of you may know, I've had a few amplifiers over the last couple years - sold, traded, etc., all of them away for one reason or another. My last trade was a 6505MH for the Laney Ironheart 60H I currently have. I don't regret that trade - I felt that the mini-head was a one-trick pony...

    I'm a few bucks short, I'll pay you back.:facemelt: https://reverb.com/item/526454-1959-gibson-les-paul-standard-grainger-burst

    F**k Yeah!!! Finally it seems someone really want to move away from a 40 years old way of doing things... Cant understand why Pickup makers still insist on Soldering... makes no sense. Link...
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    The tension I'm used to these days is 10's in Eb standard on 25.5". I'd probably tend to use the same on 24.75" too. I currently have 11's on my Les Paul just for the fun of it but that's proving a little too stiff for me. I change out the 46 for a 52 for drop C#, and I use an 11-56 set for drop...

    True Believers and Floyd Rose Fanatics! The new episode of This is Why You Suck is just for you! Ever wanted to rip your hair out while trying to change tunings or string gauges on your tremolo-equipped guitar? Boy do i ever have a cool trick for you. Using my method, you'll be able to change...

    Vintage are a UK brand, making guitars in the far east for super cheap, but they always surpass their price tag by miles. Mr S has their version of an SG which smokes most Gibsons I've played, and since then I've wanted one of their Les Pauls. Fast forward about 7 years, and I finally got one...
  17. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hi guys. Here's another stupid question coming from a newbie. I have a 7 string guitar but the passive pickups on it sucks. They make a buzzing sound, especially when I use distortion (even when the gain is low). I would like to swap them for active pickups, probably EMGs. I play mostly melodic...
  18. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I have a 6505+ 112 that i have been using as a head. I have owned it for over a year and recently the volume changes and so does the tone its also been alot noisier and some times theres a high pitch sound. Does this mean it's time to change tubes? I checked to c if it was my guitar, cables...
  19. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I've still been tweaking the wiring on my Strat now that it's SSS, and after trying the "50's wiring" approach that doesn't require the traditional treble bleed cap + resistor (and finding the volume knob became way too aggressive), I ended up going back to the more traditional treble bleed...
