  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So a few weeks back I posted about how I hated EMGs and how they sounded awful on palm mutes and how I wanted to throw them in a fire. One of you kind souls suggested I raise the height of them, and it worked beautifully. I just wanted to share the fruits of my labor, in the form of a clip I...

    Hey guys, Sooooooo I made this ambitious comparison that I would love to share with you. I got encouragement to do so from some other members here. Disclaimer: I'm not here to spam, I actually really enjoy talking about amps, guitars and pedals so give peace a chance ok? :) Ok, so I have quite...

    Do you live for icepick tone? Is the first Immortal album your definition of bold, strident, treble-focused glory? Do your bandmates constantly say things to you like: - Are you sure the treble and presence are all the way up? - If we remove the midrange knob, will that take it out even more? -...

    Boosted the Crunch channel of my 6505+ with a Joyo Vintage OD. Sounded great. Anybody know of a mod to get more gain on the Crunch channel so I don't have to boost it?
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Just some low/medium gain/bluesy stuff I recorded with a cheap condenser mic (at bedroom/whisper soft volume) & my digital handheld recorder. Added some delay from the DAW (Audacity) but that's it. No other effects/processing.. This thing sounds pretty sweet cranked but it's not too bad with...

    I bought this pedal after knowing it was a Clone of the MI Audio Crunch Box (the Pedal from were JHS supposedly cloned and called the Angry Charlie), it was an impulse buy but I dig the tone and warm Distortion of it. https://soundcloud.com/mpexus/joyodeluxecrunchv2 Guitar is nothing special...

    Just picked one of these up after too long spent pondering the JHS Charlies/Timmons... Box of Krunch It appears to be based on the MI Box of Crunch that *insert online controversy here* may have contributed to the Angry Charlie. Reasonably straight forward so far, don't think I've messed...

    As outlined in the gec-9 thread, i'm now using my 6050+ as a 3channel switchable amp. clean, clean + crunch, lead The issue is clean is significantly too quiet on pre levels where i want the crunch for breakup (about 2.5-3). logical Options are - boost the clean - cut the crunch Limitations...

  10. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'm, currently in the probably most debatable part of my rebuild: A good Pickup combo. Currently, I have a few combos in mind, and since i dont have a lot of experience with these pups, but I've heard plenty of soundclips; I want you guys to shout out if you hear one you like, or please, for...

    So I've seen similar threads to this before, I'm sure you guys probably have too, so I apologize if this sounds familiar. Anyway, in your experience, how does the DM Crunch Lab/ Liquifire combo sound in a Les Paul-style guitar? I've heard from a couple of sources that they sound too compressed...

    Post songs or albums with that treble and high-mids detail that makes you lose control of you neck. For example, this at HD quality. And this, at any quality. Crank this thread at your own risk.

    Hi guys! I've updated my axe II recently to the latest firmware and i've got to say they have really upped their game with MIMIC. The amp response feels so much more real, coming from a guy who couldn't hear a difference for the past few firmware updates :P This is my take on a clean/crunch...

  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    There's a significant, unpleasant volume jump when going from clean to crunch. Is this normal, and if so, how do you cope? I can't imagine playing live where I need to use both channels, and either have my clean too quiet, or my crunch channel harsh. Also: my standby takes about 10~ seconds to...

    I recently got my Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom back from the shop, with the Crunch Lab in the bridge and holy crap!! the harmoics just pop out much better, it was a significant upgrade from the 57 Classic originally in the bridge--I'm digging it big-time, best investment and upgrade I ever...

    Fucking sucks. Did you hear that, Google? The DiMarzio Crunch Lab 7 / Liquifire 7 combo in Basswood SUCKS. SU-U-UCKS. Do you hear that, EBMM? Don't ship basswood guitars with these. Seriously. They are bad. This is a public service announcement from your friends at MG. :yesway:
