    In 2019 I took a family trip to a zoo that was having a christmas light show. During the show it had Trans Siberian Orchestra blasting and I loved it. I immediately wanted to create my own chrsitmas song after that. Unfortunately due to life issues I was never able to finish it. After a few...

    So I've been thinking of getting a mountain bike for my winter commutes, because riding on uneven snow/ice with 35 mm tires sucks. On the other hand, the combination of slush, sanding and road salt during winter is murder for the drivetrain. So I've been considering something like this...

    So I've got this Fender MH cab, I knew it had Celestion 100 watt speakers in it, but I didn't know if they were Chinese speakers or made in England. So for shits and giggles I opened it up to take a look. Turns out they are made in England and are 16ohm speakers. Which got me thinking, pretty...

    The Fender "Mandocaster". https://reverb.com/item/3085396-fender-mandocaster-1960 Someone get one and do a sweet cover of Battle of Evermore at once. Shame the strings don't have coursed octaves.

    Some of you may remember the RG2020X I got earlier this year... Well, I don't think I included this in the NGD thread, but upon arrival, I found that it was a different guitar than the one pictured, still in a similar (if not slightly worse) condition but with a better bridge. At £350 I wasn't...

    This crap has been collecting dust in my staircase for almost a year and I don't even know why I thought this would be a good idea to begin with... Honestly, this is my worst idea ever, and I know I have done some really stupid projects :ugh: Bye!!!!!!!!!

    I've been messing around with free profiles (from the online Rig Manager) with my Kemper and while there are some decent profiles there, I was never really convinced. From the first time I tried Kemper, I instantly loved the "TAF \m/ Van Halen" profile and I still do, and no other profiles have...

    Starting with YouTube! Google is dropping its Google+ requirement across all products, starting with YouTube | VentureBeat | Social | by Emil Protalinski It seems they finally realized it was an unwise idea to force adoption of Google+.

    I went to Rick Graham's YouTube channel, and he has this video set as the one that plays on his home page. I had no idea he used to be overweight. I must have only seen recent videos. This is pretty nuts, and figured some of you fitness guys might dig this.

    Has anybody heard of these? I'm not planning to buy one, but just wanted to share :) I'm not usually into guitars with fancy wood/finishes but scheisse, doesn't this look awesome... Stainless steel frets and Gotoh floyd too! Only $1000 too if I remember right :facemelt: I have no idea what the...

    I'm really wanting a Marshally style sound for my setup because the 5150 and my little Marshall JTM30 combo aren't cutting it. I've heard the Ecstacy does the snarly JMP style crunch extremely well and there's a couple floating around Australia at present (yet there's only one Uberschall and its...

    I kinda like how this one looks but I've read some people have problem with bad saddles and string holding blocks on these ones. Looks super cool visually anyway (and I'm really not a Slipknot fan so I like the older more anonymous ones without SEVEN on the first five frets) Are there any...

    So, I saw a conversion the other day. 6505+ 112 sawed down and converted into a head. It's 60W, of course, but those who've done it say it works pretty well. Anyone have any experience with this? I'm intrigued by the idea of sawing an amplifier in half and customizing it. Oh, yes...

    Seems like I'm running in some sort of issue; My E B G strings (6strings guitar) on one of my guitars are not loud enough to go through the noisegate when I do fingertapping on them, as soon as I start fingertapping on the G string at loud volume (rehearsal volume) the string just produces a...

    So lately I've been curious about running one 4x12, with two speakers per power amp(x pattern) with my Matrix GT1000fx, and a 2:90, what do you guys think? I just want to cover a wide(read:obnoxious) amount of frequencies. My worry is that I'll sound too shrill/dry with the matrix alone, so i...

    Quick clip of a riff idea using my Ibanez TAM10, Pod HD500 (rhythm tone) and Guitar Rig 4 (weird clean tone). I just had Allan Marcus of Astral/Strandberg do a set up on the TAM10 and was eager to record something with it. Enjoy! :metal: http://soundcloud.com/jm2484/9-6-14-idea
