    I've seen this video This guy has changed the Gain pot on Channel 3 to a 1 Meg pot (stock is 250k). Sounds like a pretty good and easy mod to do, but has any one here done it? I'm considering it for my Triple Rectifier.

    Okay so I've had my 6505+ for awhile and I've been running the gain with a boost on 4.5 on the lead channel. Now that's always sounded good, but it never got me quite the crunch like the guys from Chimaira had, which is what I want from that amp. I saw a video that Rob did, and he's got his gain...

    This might be a bit of a rambling waffle but bear with me... I know a few of you have been crowing about this for years :lol: And it's not like I didn't believe you, I just thought I was more comfortable in high-output territory. :shrug: I've recently started to build up a rig again. As a...

    So, as a happy accident a while ago I ran my ts808 (as a boost) into a centaur klon clone pedal I built (with some gain, a small level boost and tone to taste) and found it did really nice things to the amp tone. The klon just added a bit of sparkle to ti and it just worked. Then last night ran...

    Just overhauled my recording setup and purchased new monitors and a new interface. After doing a bunch of research I decided on the Focusrite Clarett 4pre. I did a test recording on it yesterday for the first time and the input gain knob had to be turned down to 0 to get a signal that was even...

    Everywhere you look on mixing tutorials they say "turn down the gain on metal guitars" And I've been trying to follow that advice for a long time now and maybe that's the reason why my guitar tone sounds weak and stupid!? Low gain... sounds weak? This is how I have usually diailed my gain the...

    This didn't come as a surprise, because I already "knew" this, but I have never tested it with recordings. I've always hit my strings pretty hard and have pretty low gain, but sometimes I've tried picking softer with higher gain and when I do that, I think I get better string definition... But...

    Posted this on the other forum, but I'm desperate for opinions. Basically I'm too lazy and cheap to buy and install another EMG set for my upcoming Kelly, so I'm looking for opinions on the Lace Drop N' Gain bridge pickup. Already tried several supposed active-like passives, like the...

    Well to start off I have gotten back into skateboarding now that it has warmed up. I go for an hour a day usually 5 days a week. It's a great workout and it's working my legs, chest, pretty much everything but my arms. I'd like to find some type of activity to work my arms but honestly I'm...

    I've got a Charvel Spectrum in the mail, already loaded with EMGs (S or SA, didn't ask which) which I know fucking rule for a lot of stuff, but I don't think they are really designed for extreme metal. Hopefully they work out, but if not I'd like a backup plan. Specifically looking at the...

    I've got a Flying V with Burstbucker Pro's. The thing is, they deliver a king of ground buzz(not very loud), when used on a high gain setting. The buzz goes away, when I touch the bridge or strings, and it goes away when I'm on the clean setting of my amp. Are the BB's just noisy of nature? My...
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I was talking with a couple of friends today and we were discussing high output pickups (ie Duncan Distortion/JB/Invader/etc...) vs medium gain pickups and how the higher output sacrifices tone. Given that a good chunk of people use a boost of some kind or other in front of their amp rather than...

    Actually, got this about a week ago or so. Nothing too exciting, except that for $130, it's a really handy pedal to have. Basically, for mid and high gain tones, I'm either a dry or just delay player, and for cleans, just chorus and delay. However, for those moments when I want something...

    Hi fellow forum geeks, A couple of months ago I got back from Guitar Candy (little shop with INCREADIBLE equipment in Belgium) with... ... another amp. God knows what I do with all of my amps, but I couldn't resist, as this truly is the most impressive piece of engineering in amp world I...

    This isn't a proper pickup demonstration - I mostly just use the neck position, with the bridge for one passage in the middle - but I used my Strat with the ML set for this month's Jemsite solo competition. This is an awesome sounding set of pickups, plain and simple. This is with the gain at...

    I'm intrigued by this pedal to thicken and juice-up leads. But every example of it I've seen seems like it's only geared towards beefing up a crunch channel in a more blues/rock setting. But what about high gain? It seems (in theory) like the ideal thing to step on when you want to round out...

    I'm thinking about overhauling my current rig (Carvin TS100>Pod HD Pro>Mesa 4x12 w/ V30's) and getting a Satan to go with my Mesa 4x12. Just wondering if anyone has demoed one... the gain options are insane and it seems pretty versatile. Thanks. :yesway:

    Never seen lynch playing a les paul, I am also ver surprised he put some gain back into his playing and he sounded great.

    Despite the questionable ergonomics, the Gibson SG is one of those sounds I need in the toolkit. So, here it is. Pretty much the closest thing you can get to an Iommi SG without paying $6,000+ for one of his signature model guitars. Functionally, the fretboard material is the only real...
  20. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Thinking about a change in my Suhr again - I like how the Rebel Yells sound, but theyre' really not all that hot, at all, meaning I have to push the Rectfier's preamp gain further than it likes, and I've got them adjusted about as close to the strings as I can get away with. They kill for lower...
