    Some of you, like Nick, might remember when I first joined these boards years ago and posted this song I'd just done, looking for help with the mix, etc. Thanks to many of you, I learned quite a few solid tricks, but the biggest difference came in upgrading equipment. This first take from 2016...

    This should be interesting. I see a lot of younger 'heads talking about "modern metal" and how different it is from old school stuff - so it got me wondering how everyone defines the two and their differences. Clearly Venom and (insert 2019 flavor of the month new band) are drastically...

    So I'm doing my normal post-new-guitar disassembly and cleanup of the 2027, and at least one of the screw holes for the trem claw was stripped, the other not far behind. I did the usual repair, jamming a toothpick and wood glue in there, and now I'm waiting for it to set. Before I put it all...

    This should be interesting. When I started buying 80s guitars a lot of the appeal is because they were cheaper, and used. But like cars, a "used" guitar is not as valuable as a "vintage" guitar. Finish wear on a "Used" guitar is undesirable, but on a "Vintage" one it can sometimes be a selling...
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm aware of the features of the amps, but I'm really curious as to what the tonal differences are between the two. I assume someone here has tried out both. I'm finding the XXX to be equally a one-trick pony as the amp doesn't sound all that different on any of the channels, just more/less...

    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...

    I could pick out the Les Paul every time, I was about 75% correct on the rest of them, I am wondering if he was coil splitting on the RG at times. I could hear a difference between all four on every comparison he did. Les Paul vs. RG vs. Strat vs. Tele: Can You Hear the Difference? | GuitarPlayer

    Just been looking into Mesa 1x12 cabs, and I noticed the cab Petrucci uses in the 'proto playthrough' video doesn't seem to be available here in the EU. Looks like he's using the Recto 1x12, but all I can find here is the Mini-Recto 1x12 They look to be the same according to the specs listed on...

    So lately I've been studying the hell out of recording gear since I want to start recording. It's been interesting talking about gear and selling gear at GuitarCenter. Something that really stood out to me was how great the quality of RØDE mics are for how cheap they are. The NT1-A bundles...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I was looking to brass saddles, tone block, and/or nut, what difference will they make, and which one will make the 'best' difference? I'm looking to get a little more chime. I was also curious how I could do a JP style truss rod adjustment, as removing the pickguard/neck to do action is...

    If I play for our set I start to get sore Ilwould leather or padded guitar straps help? I just use a standard cheapie strap right now
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    First off let me start by saying that I ordered this pickup over a week ago. These bastereds didn't provide a tracking number from the start and upon arival, I found out that they sent my a Gibson p94R neck pick up instead of a p94T bridge (which is what it was advertised as):noplease:. My...

    This is too fucking funny. :lol: Christophe is a monster, monster player too, for those of you who haven't checked out Mörglbl.
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Looking at these picks...both are tortex, both come in same gauges, both have the jazz III tip, both appear to be roughly the same size...the only difference I can even see is that the shoulders are shaped/placed a little differently. Am I missing something here? I wouldn't think Dunlop would...
  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I've been a dissatisfied with the high gain channel on my Egnater Vengeance and tonight I did some tweaking to get it towards a more Marshally sound. I put the mids at 2 o'clock (2 o'clock as in an actual clock) bass at 1 o' clock and treble at 2 as well, I adjusted the gain as I changed what I...
  16. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I never really thought there was that big of a difference. The guitar I had for years was an Ibanez RT with V7 and V8 pickups. I was like alright, they sound ok. I didn't have anything to compare. Then I got an RG with IBZUSA pickups and they sounded a little better. Then I got a JP50 from...

    I have a couple of 2x12 Carvin cabs. Both with the Celestion V30s, all wired up the same way. 8ohms. From factory. Wiring colors and connections all match. But one cab is really bass heavy and the other has little low end. I can understand a slight difference, but these cabs are very very...
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I was in the market for a new Les paul and was checking out the 2013 and 2012 standards. I was wondering if there was any signifcant difference between the 2013 and 2012. While my budget can reach the 3k for a LP, I wanna try my best to save as much money as possible, so I wouldn't mind getting...

    What's the difference in these two guitars? I'm not seeing it Blackjack ATX C-1 - Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 - Schecter Guitar Research
  20. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Was thinking about something as I was moving my setup around a bit. I've got a stereo cabinet which I can run either in 4 ohm or 16 ohm operation when in mono. Does it really make a difference which one I pick? Does the amp respond differently?
