    Is there a way to direct mount these without screwing the screw ring on the pickups? I mean that brass thing.
  2. Music: Recording Studio I'm biamping in the Fractal, with an SVT (SV Bass 1) and a JCM800 (Brit 800 #34). The second amp was a 5150 at first, but the direct sound was a bit fizzy with it. Instead of dialing it in (lol) I just thought... What would Lemmy do? Also...

    So, I noticed while practicing at "band volume" with the drummer that my Warmoth is noisy, almost microphonic. These are relatively new pickups, on a relatively new guitar; Dimarzios. I googled around, plus asked the tech at the shop, and found that it's possible that direct mounted pickups...

    Over the last few days, I’ve been obsessing about the FU-Tone PMS system for direct mounting pickups. So far as I can tell, the claims they make about getting more ‘vibrational transference’ from the body are snake oil designed to justify the $50 price (+shipping to the UK means I can’t justify...

    Check this out. Sounds just like Marty's clean sound on Introduction and Scenes.

    So, it's "common knowledge" that the built-in direct signals (hi-z/instrument/guitar) on interfaces are inferior to let's say a good quality DI box (like teh Radial) So I decided to make a comparison. DIRECT SIGNAL! REAMPED SOUND (with Kemper)...

    Hey guys, currently in my studio I have got a Peavey 6505mh for the all out modern metal tones and I also have a beat up old Marshall 8080 Valvestate which I use for old school DM tones. As I am currently still researching a learning every recording technique I can get my hands on, I am looking...

    I have never had this problem before and i'm not sure what is happening really. I put a set of Duncans in my LTD and the Black Winter clips unless I turn the pad on my interface on. If I do that, it completely changes the tone though. I'm not sure if there is a solution but I was curious if...

    :clint: An ACTUAL piece of gritty, dark material to work with and they still somehow make it look like absolute shite. Just let Bruce Timm write and direct one of the films, then it might actually turn into something worthwhile.

    Hi guys, I have for some time a low end Schecter (the Omen 6 old version from 2009) and im deciding to try to bump her a bit, i already put a Tone Zone (bridge) and Paf Pro (neck) on her that I got on a very very good deal some time ago and now I was deciding if replacing the Tuners was worth...

    Positive Grid® | BIAS® Amp Match Modeler | JAMUP® Multi-Effects - BIAS-Fx I'm intrigued by this - at the least it'll be a great practice tool. Might tempt me to try it direct to PA for a jam with the guys.
  13. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Where can I get some that are maybe 1/4 or 1/8" longer than the stock DiMarzio ones? I can't get the direct mounts in my IndoJax high enough for maximum br00tz.

    Alien: New Movie Confirmed with Director Neill Blomkamp | Variety I think I'm okay with this. I liked District 9 and didn't mind Elysium. That article is full of talk of Ridley Scott, which hopefully means the first Alien will be the biggest influence. He seems like a director who has his...
  15. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Got a few guitars that I'm working on and need to track down some screws to direct mount the pickups. I don't want to drill out the tabs on the pickups in case I want to put them in another guitar. I know the thread on all of them is a standard 3-48 so I need a screw smaller. Here in Australia...

    What are you guys using underneath a pickup? Springs are a ridiculous pita. Any suggestions on what works well and where I can get it? Foam weather stripping? Thanks

    Is it possible? Someone must of worked this one out. Help me guys!
  19. Music: Recording Studio
    So I'm running a Focusrite 2i4 usb interface and I'm just recording my guitar DI direct into the interface using amp VST's in my DAW for tones. My question is what is the best way to monitor the wet amp/tone/VST signal? Tracking and just hearing the DI of the guitar doesn't sound/feel right most...

    I saw this on another forum. I quite like the idea but the clips in the video sound awful imho. Fryette Valvulator GP/DI Tube Guitar Recording Amplifier by Fryette Amplification - Kickstarter If it actually makes it to market i'd be interested in trying it out and hearing it in an actual...
