    https://diypunkrock.com/collections/midi-drum-packs I just picked up these midi beats for SSD and they are pretty damn cool! Here is an old riff I recorded to them. https://soundcloud.com/henryschreck/old-riff
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'd actually asked Mesa about this as an option on a custom order, but they said no. I figured it was more trouble than it was worth to try to do it myself, but after the AdminiShredder did it and it turned out to be painless, well....

  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've been meaning to do this swap basically forever, but finally got a free day where I had the time to do the work while shooting video. tl;dr - not only do I love the PAF Pro exactly as much as I expected to in this guitar, I forgot how much I like the Blaze (the one in my UV is dying so I...

    I'm sure this is old news to many (most?) or you here, but I didn't see "Grailknights" results when I used the Search Bar, so I thought I'd post this. It came up when I was doing work and letting YouTube rabbit hole through music, and it made me smile. Enjoy:

    I am no genious when it comes to production hence the artifacts you'll be hearing in my attempt at loudness. Got a pretty huge bass tone on this, maybe a bit OTT but I do love a big clunky (b)ass. https://soundcloud.com/nick-collins-7/death-metal-bass-test

    Judas Priest's "You've Got Another Thing Comin" was recorded in Coconut Grove, a neighborhood in Miami. As a south floridian and Judas Priest being my all time favorite band this is awesome. I don't know anyone else outside of this forum that understands the importance of Judas Priest in metal...
  8. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I guess the formal name for this would be a 'Line 6 Variax James Tyler JTV-69'? So, a couple people might remember this deceptively titled thread: http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-instrument-discussion/90890-ngd-28-guitars-pickups.html Anyway, I still contend that the Variax system...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I just got this in today. It is a Pete Malinoski Rodeo. I really like these fancy furniture wood guitars, so this one was a no brainer for me. Its a spalted maple top, flame maple neck, spanish cedar back, and pau ferro fretboard. Really pretty, I think. It has 3 of his own pickups, which sound...
  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, I have about 14 hours in this thing - I put the 2x12 Avatar cab together with the Laney Ironheart and played it long enough to sort out a signal chain issue I've been bugged by, but by and large, I've played this Blues Jr. and nothing else since I plugged it in. And largely played the Strat...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I took a trip to London yesterday with Adam (Cobra Commander) and James (7 Dying Trees), and we booked a studio to just go and make some noise and try out each others gear. Bearing in mind this is a large people carrier, as you can see we had a fair bit of stuff: The full list of toys at...

    Threw this up a few places, figured maybe you guys would wanna read too: I want to preface this by saying all of this is my opinion. I'm not trying to invalidate others' opinions or say if you own something I didn't like that you have bad taste....tone is preference and completely subjective...

    Hello lads and ladies, Your friendly porn towell here checking in from dirt-hole afghanistan. I got a 7 string and a Yamaha THR10x out here and got to toying around/recording some tunes. For such a cheap setup, you can get some very decent tones out of the thing. Here's a little tune I wrote...

    Welp, here it is finally. I don't blame you guys if you tell me to fuck off and don't participate because this song is 15lbs of bullshit in a 5lb bag. That being said it was fun to learn. The video got fucked up at some point so the audio doesn't sync up at the end and I screwed up towards the...

    Greetings chaps The story: While writting the 2nd album for my band Tempus Fusion, I burned myself out. Got overworked and was super frustrated with my mixes, song structures, snare sound, enough reverb here etc etc until I realised one day that I hated every single fucking thing there. So I...

    Just read that Halo 5 isn't going to have splitscreen or local LAN of any kind. What the fuck. Maybe I'm in the minority, but 90% of my time with the Halo series has been spent with a couple of friends in the same room. The series has really gone downhill since 343 took over. Reach was amazing...

    I'm a vocalist and I have a mic and lots of free time and well, this kind of music is always fun and ridiculous, so why not do something fun with it? It doesn't strictly have to be grounded to be purely slam, there's for for messing around and experimenting. If anyone is interested in doing a...

    Seriously. Wrote them off forever because I thought they were a novelty band. Their riffs and arrangements are consistently the hardest thrashing of any band 2000-2010. Fun as fuck, serious at times, and rips new assholes.

    Not the biggest turn out for this one, and I think it's probably in the bag for Jeepy (and rightly so!), but let's have a vote, anyway. Only three entries, so it may be tolerable to watch all three then vote. Remember, it's not the most accurate or tightest performance or anything like that...
