  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    :billted: This super exciting setup ensures that if I stroll across my office and yank an instrument cable out, I yank it out of a pedal and not out of a preamp. Also it's a quick way to mute the br00tz if I have a crying infant, or if Drew is talking in his smooth baritone. :lol: L-R...

    I know this is not for everyone, or anyone, but i think we have come a long way from our previous efforts and because of that im happy with it. For guitars i used my EC-1000 with alnico 2 pickups and 6505MH thru V30's with 57 and some other mic's. Happy with the results there. Our engineer was...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    This guitar had terribly high action at the nut, so I fixed it for him First sawing a bit Then filing I also installed a dive-only Blocka Rollas (tm) because this FRT-2000 fucking sucks and can't stay in tune even with new springs, lubed knife edges and proper setup. But now it stays in...

    I screwed together that black/mirror Warmoth strat for a friend a week ago... Tomorrow he's going to record some stuff, so he came by so I could check the guitar until tomorrow... First off, the strings was really yucky, lots of goo on the... After only 4 days :lol: And intonation was off...

    This last tour ruled. Great group of dudes all around and we had a blast, as usual. The band called Outlands is a group of our good friends from back home and it was really cool to be out with people we were already friends with. I also wrote a good bit of their music and it was weird to hear...

    One of the most accurate things I've ever seen.
  7. Member Introductions
    Another FNG here. Only been playing for less then two years. Hope to learn a few things here. I'm mostly into 80's & 90's metal. Dokken, Judas Priest, Ratt, Cinderella, Sabbath, and Van Halen to name a few.

    Okay I posted a thread about planning on seeing Meshuggah as my foray back into metal and it got me thinking on a tangent. When introducing your friends to metal do you start with a certain genre? Do you start with "gateway" bands? Do you start with what you are currently listening to? Do...

    2 of my good friends were making some really good rap type music. One of these friends fell into tough times and he offed Himself (I won't even be able to attend the funeral. Really really sad as he was a good friend). It would great if you guys would check out the link and maybe even buy the...

    What are you guys using? I hate the Sunbeam I have. Too inconsistent, runs through filters constantly, and is loud as fuck. This is sorta gear, so screw it, here it is. :D

    Seemingly on their way up the ladder, and definitely worth checking out! Absolutely awesome guys too! Download their album on Bandcamp too (it's worth giving them cash for IMO). We Build Mountains | The Sun Explodes

    Hey Guys! After working on mixes for 3 years, my album is finally done and ready for download. Download it free from Bandcamp Hand Of Taurus and for if some reason bandcamp runs out of free downloads for the month, you can get it here... Hand Of Taurus - Hand Of Taurus -

    Hey guys, wanted to share with you my friends and mine latest creation- its an acoustic song called "Friend" and I wrote a pretty sick solo for it. We would love to hear your feedback! This song is my first attempt to write an "optimistic" sounding solo so any feedback on that will be really...
  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    how do you guys go about figuring the numbers behind tracks like Bleed. Not specifically Bleed but when you listen to it and want to unravel how x-rhythm of y-notes relate to each other - whats the process you go through. I know they do this thing Maessean used to do in that Pineal track but...
  15. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I thought you guys would appreciate this. its been done by the guy who taught me a lot of what i know and is miles tidier than anything i could ever do. its all documented on here DIY Audio It started out life as a Laney AOR and all thats left of the original amp now is the chassis &...
  16. General Music Discussion
    Instead of, ahem, working on my album, I recorded a backing track for Satriani's "Friends" in standard Drop-D rather than a half step down so I wouldn't have to retune to jam along with it. Then, tonight I figured what the hell, I'd make a video for youtube since I haven't posted anything in a...
