  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Thread title is shit but bear with me. I have a lot of preamps and a few power amps. Most preamps have a presence control built into them. For example, on my Axe-Fx, each preset has a presence setting. Same with my Triaxis, a JMP-1, etc etc. All these preamps have presence controls. Both of my...

    TLDR/W: I picked up the Voodoo Labs control switcher to manage my Mark V from the Fractal. It worked great, and now I can get all the shit off of the top of my amp. I'm a bedroom shredder with a two year old, so big ridiculous Mesa footswitches on the floor just don't work. :lol: Now it's nice...

    So I recently learned about the Fortin 33, which seems to be an unobtainable/ridiculously overpriced TC Spark :lol: One thing I dig about it though, is the ability to run a control out and switch amp channels with it. I'm wondering if it is easy to just mod an overdrive pedal to do this. For...

    Is it possible to control ampsims VSTs and effects with MIDI footswitch into Cubase, for example?

    This was actually in the top news on Bloomberg today, though I can't yet find the story online. The gist is bondholders holding 2/3 of the debt due in August that it's unclear if the company will be able to secure financing to refinance are instead looking to negotiate taking majority control of...

    It's really hard to get this right it seems, and it's absolutely imperative for live players for convenient pickup switching, and fast volume roll-off to control feedback and mute yourself when necessary. I'm putting together a new pickguard for my So Cal, and since I requested that the guard...

    How could THIS leave the factory like this? I just recieved this nut in the mail and it's somewhat arching on one edge! It's not much, but I saw it right away! I dont trust this at all! There's two options: 1. File it down (with risk of doing more damage) 2. Return it Floyd Rose should...

    Voodoo Lab Control Switcher Received my Voodoo Lab Control Switcher today. I had them make up a custom cable for my JSX. Took all of 10 minutes to program 4 banks of 5 presets each. Running it with a Boss SE-50 and an Alexis Quadraverb. Controlling it with an Art X-11 foot switch. No more tap...

    chaps, i'm interested to know... does anyone find that your posture or command of your core musculature does odd things when you concentrate on challenging bits of playing? i first noticed this when we did the MDB euro tour in 2012 - when i'm facing a tricky section, i seem to push my stomach...

    This is the goods: https://www.nomachine.com Need a RDP-style application for Linux? Don't want to fight with XRDP and VNC? This thing takes all of 5 minutes to install and works freakin' great. The sever was just basically unpack the tarball and run the installer, the OSX app just had me...

    I've never tried Big Bends Nut Sauce until today, but I think it made a HUGE improvement to my Fender Musicmaster. Still it does not have the stability of my Floyd Rose guitars but now it's actually usable again. It's the guitar I've been using for the most time in my life and I want it to be...

    This was something I noticed over the weekend, for some reason, and have started thinking about - when you play a trill, do you start the trill with a hammer-on or a pull off? For example, if you're trilling on the D string between the open D and a 2nd fret E, do you start the trill by picking...

    Good shape overall. The pickups were swapped out for an emg 85/60 set and wired to only have a single volume and 3 way switch. Not my doing but I imagine it was to save some room inside of the already tiny control cavity! (It's got a battery and pcb in there now. Looking for $820 shipped. To...
