  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    There is a kit assembled LP style guitar I've eyed on Reverb for a little while, but it's wired with EMGs. Seller says there is no ground wire laid to the bridge or TOM. If I got it I would ditch the EMGs for something passive but wonder how heard it would be to try and wire the ground without...

    I need some help here. Do the seymour duncan blackout pickups require you to ground the strings like passive pu's? Emg active pu's do not. Thanks :metal:

    Next up on the block is my Fender RW Tele. Plays well and covers a lot of tonal ground. It does some killer classic rock dirt stuff, which is why I bought it. Think AC/DC Hell's Bells and ZZ Top, etc.. Obviously it rules at cleans too if you're lame an get into that kinda stuff ;) No mods, or...

    Exactly as the title states, is there an easy way to install a bridge ground on a guitar that doesn't have one?
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm just now using the 500 as an effects unit, of which I like the layout. I've set up another bank for effects only/4CM, with the FX loop just before where the disabled amp model is. I think I've got the levels right (+5Db on loop send, master 60% up), but I'm getting a weird hum when I've...

    I was cleaning out my external and came across these pictures from a winter or two ago. It's been on my mind again so I thought I'd post it. My buddy and I were reading about smoking, and that led us to something called pit BBQing. Basically, you bbq meat in a pit :lol: So we got ourselves a...

    So after getting new pickups for this almost a year ago (:lol:) I'm finally getting around to putting them in. This cavity is fuckin' nasty, so I'm going to rip all that shit out, copper tape it and try and get it cleaned up. Anyway, that giant mess of shit at the left of the cavity is (as far...
  11. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Quick question, hypothetically if you want to switch from active pickups to passive I know you need new pots and stuff, but what about the bridge ground wire? Passive pickups have a ground wire hooked up to the bridge don't they? So say your guitar came installed with active pickups and doesn't...

    Newbie question, I know.. Usually one of the connections is tagged to the sleeve. Which of these prongs is the ground?
  13. General Music Discussion
    I'm just bummed out at the moment and need to vent, so sorry if this is the wrong section, but I figured since it was music related... So my 'band' (it feels like a joke to even call it that) has been struggling to get off the ground for the last 3 years. With so many line up changes and...
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I've made some changes to my rig recently. I'm running a 6505+, a G Major and a Ground Control MIDI board. I'm using the FJA 6505+ to G Major cable which enables channel switching via the relays of the G Major (or something to that effect). The Issue: The amp channels switch by themselves maybe...

  16. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I recently purchased the Engl Invader 100 & it's a midi compatible head with midi in & thru. I'm thinking of picking up a TC Electronics G-Major & a Voodoo Labs GCX Switcher & Ground Control Pedal. A few questions.... 1. I hear the G-Major does amp switching. Will it do it through the...
  17. Computers, Electronics, Gaming & IT
    So, I recently built a new Mini-ITX computer, and I'm having trouble with noise. The problem is, connecting my PODxt to the new computer through USB introduces significant noise to the signal coming right out of the PHONES output on the PODxt. If I unplug the USB cord, or turn off the computer...

    Description: One Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro MIDI footswitcher, in minty fresh condition. Seriously, bought it for studio-only use and it got used once before we decided that all our switching would happen via the computer. Probably the best for the price point on the market, especially when...
  19. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Does anyone have any suggestions for building up patches from the ground? For example, I think, "I'd like to build a Powerball model and a Rectifier Orange model and try them out at my band's next rehearsal." I'm not going to have time to dick with the tone much when I'm at rehearsal, so I want...
