  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    At first I thought I was EVIL for having this thought...then the logic dawned on me - I don't hang out at "Blues" forums...I hang out here. The BurstBucker Pro pickups sound great....but I'm pretty certain I'm going to go with a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the Bridge, and a Dimarzio Air Classic...

    I have EMGs in my guitar with Graphtech Piezo guitar right now. But I wanna have some other passives instead. What do I do with the battery cable that I once had attached to the passives? I'm sort of confused what do with it

  4. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I think I'm developing a fetish for satin finish necks. Yesterday I caught myself stroking a Squire Strat with a satin neck. Feels nicer than my MIM Fender Strat with traditional glossy finish. Do you guys have a preference? Thumbs up for necks like JP60 or Wolfgang Special. Is there a way...
  5. General Music Discussion
    so i've given a fair shake to many forms of black metal and i just can't get into it. last year i liked a bit of mgla but i got bored of it. it was a bit too "melodic" for my tastes. then i discovered this band called misthyrming and i absolutely loved what they were doing. turns out there's a...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey I have a rx10d jackson rhoads guitar (black rosewood fretboard). It has licenced floyd rose. The thing is I didn't know anything about gear when i bought it, and no one adviced me. I mostly play the melodic genres of extreme metal. I only use it for practice so I want a cheaper guitar, is...

    I'm building some solar learning kits for kids, for some outreach events my company has gotten involved in, and what I've got so far is pretty simple, and pretty effective; two 6 V solar panels and one 4x AA holder for power sources, and the devices to drive are a group of 5 LED's, a 12 V fan...
  8. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I kept meaning to canvas ideas on this and forgetting, then Paul's post in another thread brought it to mind. What are people using to block the trem when changing strings? I use a AA battery swaddled in the required amount of parcel tape to sit underneath the trem. I dive the trem, throw the...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Title says it all, basically I want to switch the tubes in my Egnater to EL-34's because all of my favorite amp tones tend to come from amps with them. Right now it's got ruby 6L6's, they're very, very dark sounding, to dark. Suggestions for brands to look into? I really don't know anything...
  10. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Man - I'm trying to change the way I hold the pick and am having a heck of a time. I've always held the pick with vertical slant. Most "how to hold a pick" video lessons on YT show the player holding the pic slanted forward/down...I hold it slanted back/up. I've noticed that as I've tried to...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hey guys, I just got this guitar with the zero point trem, and I feel like a dumbass but I have no idea how to change the strings on this thing. I'm completely new to the world of locking trems so If someone could point me in the right direction that would be great
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing

    I got a triple recto is there a easy way that you guys know of to change em or is the only way to pull power tubes out first. Thanks.
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    This may apply to other amps as well, but since I know fuck all about tubes other than my own, I'll throw this out there. I was just talking to Dave, listening to him suffer from bubonic plague on the phone, and brought up the idea of swapping out the stock 12AX7 in V5 (FX send return) with a...

  16. Music: Recording Studio
    We're throwing down some scratch tracks for the upcoming recording day this monday, and I can't for the life of me figure out if there's a way to decrease the tempo of the click on a track at a pre-determined point or something to that effect. Or, should we just do it the old-fashioned way...
  17. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey guys its me again back with another newbie question. When I was taking guitar lessons I asked my guitar teacher if it should be making scratchy noise when changing between power chords, and how I could minimize it. He told me nothing you could do about it, and it didn't really matter since...

    I edited some presets on my TA, assigned them to midi program numbers, and now my midi pedal isn't changing anything. It's changing channels on the GSharp just fine, just not the TA, which is weird, because the TA is the first in the chain. WTF?
  20. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    How many of you have done it? I joined a new band and it involves A LOT of really fast alternate picking on the lower strings and doing it with my old picking style(that I've done for 20+ years) is really taking it's toll fast. I've had tendonitis for ten years now and I've always kept it at...
