distortion

  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Okay, so today I went out and picked up a Fender Full Moon distortion pedal to use on the clean channel of my 6505+. Now, why would I use a distortion pedal with an amazing amp such as the 6505+? Simple. The 6505+, to my ears at least, doesn't get as buzzy or as nasty as I'd like for old school...

    I have been playing guitar and buying gear since I was 12 years old (30 years). Maybe I am dumb as dog shit but what the fuck is the difference between a distortion pedal and all these new preamp pedals? Aren't they the same friggin thing?

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/sxdt345llixh69w/Pickups%203.rar?raw=1 Started its own thread just for those who missed the post in the last thread. Labelled this time so it's not a blind test. Same mix, same settings, no EQ on any guitars so you can hear the whole spectrum raw. My thoughts in both...

    "ProF.E.T. is a digital emulation of an high gain distortion preamp/stomp-box for guitar. It has been developed to accurately model its real hardware counterpart, designed and built by Ignite Amps in 2018." https://www.kvraudio.com/product/prof-e-t-by-ignite-amps I'd say this sounds really...

    I figured out it would have been nice to make this kind of video since there weren't many comparisons between these two on YouTube (or anywhere else for that matter). To me, both pickups sound good. The Distortion, though, is more accurate and the note separation is much better, and I think it...

    I play in an Oldschool death metal band and have been using a Japanese Boss HM2 distortion for that high mid sweedish chainsaw tone that sounds dirty af and brutal. That being said I'm kind of ahopping around for a new tone to use for our new EP, I wanted something dirty, brutal and huge but...

    I just bought a Warmoth body to go with that neck I bought off Garrett a few months ago. Basically, this: Warmoth Custom Guitar Products - Diamondback Guitar Body I think this will be a bit of an Iommi tribute. Everything I write, despite years of not heavily listening to Sabbath, just comes...

    Selling a Duncan Distortion, Duncan JB, and a DiMarzio PAF. The Distortion and PAF show a bit of age. Have some slight corrosion on the screws and quite a bit of pick scratching... but they're pickups. They fucking work. :lol: The JB was pulled out of a fairly new guitar. Shows some pick...

    So I've decided to cool off on buying amps for a while. I have sold my Triple rectifier leaving me with a modded marshall JTM45/100 it has a master volume, friedman FAT switch, and effects loop. I see videos all the time demonstrating pedals but my question is what do you set the head at...

    I just picked up an RG927 in black. Nice guitar and all, but the stock pups gotta go. In my main guitar (7620) I run a TZ7 w/ 1M ohm pot. While I'm happy with the tone from the 7620, I was thinking about changing it up. Looked on the DiMarzio site I noticed the SD7 and I was intrigued. I checked...

    I caught up the a good mate of mine that I haven't seen in a while. We've both been busy but the weekend finally allowed us to catch up. He's been doing some pedal modding (mainly Boss) and building a HM2 clone and wanted me to try out and hear them. He was also interested in hearing some of...

    $40 shipped. The tabs have been modified to fit into triangular routes and drilled for direct mount. As you can see I fucked up one of the tabs on the neck pickup but it still works for direct mount. Bridge is trem spaced My price should more than make up for this! Ships from Alberta.

    I know it was only a few months back I was asking for the exact opposite :lol: (wanting to trade a JB for a distortion) but this is for a different guitar/tuning/style. Anybody got a trem-spaced JB?
