  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'd been fooling around with blues and like it very much but found myself pushing the amp (a Supro 1970RK) to beyond its wheelhouse. I was inching more toward a grind and grit that even a decent pedal couldn't produce in that amp. Heavy distortion, fuzz, etc., just made a great amp sound like...

    This is all sorts of badass. :metal:
  3. General Music Discussion This is the first time I've mic'd an amp and recorded with that instead of using an amp sim, while I'm not 100% stoked on the tone, but that's more due to the amp (Peavey XXX) than anything else. I think I recorded this with...

    This piece is great. I actually don't like the heavier parts as much as I love the Jamiroquai-lite basslines.
  5. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I tune to E standard with 10-52 strings and those stupid stock Edge Zero springs aren't tight enough. (Note: on a regular Edge or OFR I never had that problem with 3 springs in parallel with the claw at least 5mm from the cavity wall). I even had two luthiers look at it and try everything and...

    I want to put on some heavier strings, but don't really want to bring my guitars in to get everything reset for heavier strings. Is there a way to re-adjust it on my own???

    You know, its weird. Last night, I fell asleep listening to Meshuggah. And for me that's strange considering how I was raised on country music and maybe a little Beatles or such, and for the fact that in fourth grade I remember listening to "Immigrant Song" on one of my friend's old mp3 players...
  8. Music: Recording Studio
    This is a song by The Tea Party that I've always wanted to cover and turn a bit heavier than the original. This is from the first Tea Party album I ever owned, and I believe I got it for Christmas the same year I got my first electric guitar. Gear: Squier Strat w/ DiMarzio Super Distortion...

    I dig this song, never really got into Meshuggah before
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've been doing some testing on a few strings and found that a D'Addario NW068 felt a lot lighter than a NW066. I checked the gauge with a pair of vernier callipers, no mistake, the strings were spot on 1.68mm and 1.73mm as they should be. Coiling the strings up and squeezing them the NW068 felt...

    So getting the hang of recording with drums. Here's a really quick riff that I put together with the drums. Dual tracks panned L/R. I realize I need some heavier gauge strings since these poor 9s are going out of tune very very easily. Using my Jackson 7 with the 81-7x. :cheers: EDIT: Will...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I was informed by the luthier that does all of my set-ups that I should investigate into heavier strings for my guitar. His reason for this suggestion was the fact that I tune down to D standard, but use a .042-.010 set of strings. He suggested that I use at least a .052-.050 for the low E...
