  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So I got this Strat in '95, it was my first good guitar and I played the SHIT out of this thing until I got my JEM a couple years later. Since then, I've used it very, very rarely as it had an 1/8" thick poly coat on it and it really sounded terrible. Tried different pickups and nothing really...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    After reading through 7DT's minty LNG thread, I noticed a lot of guitars have passed hands from one member to another. I've seen it quite a bit over the years. I'm curious, which guitars started with one member and is now owned by another? Also, which guitar has been passed around the most and...

    Great song. Even better when you consider how relevant it is to current events.
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Out of curiosity, does anyone here know if there is any bridge pickup that correspond to that description? It's a long shot, I know, but maybe I'll find some info. The EQ curve would be something like "Bass 8, Low Mids 8, Upper Mids 9/10, Treble 5" So far the pickups that come close are: -...

    I have been a fan of the most recent two they put out for a long time (Carnage Carnival and Doomain) but I just got the earlier stuff. Very rad. For fans of Solitude Aeturnus and Memento Mori.

  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    OK, quick one for the UK lot - has anyone here shipped an amp around the UK and do you have any recommendations/horror stories/tips etc? I'll be putting my Cobra on Ebay tomorrow and want to get an accurate quote for a courier before I list it as I dont want to get stung by asking for 20 or 30...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I didn't really mean to, but hey, what can you do? :lol: First up: Trailer Trash pedalboard. Awesome, well built board. The side has holes drilled out and plugged so you can install Neutrik jacks and I'll probably do that once I figure out the final configuration for what's going on top. Also...

    Bit of a guilty pleasure, perhaps - its about as straightforward as hard rock get - but I like this rather a lot. Catchy as hell. :metal:
  10. General Music Discussion
    I've got a week of annual leave, and I thought I'd have a crack at learning and playing through all of Xerath's II. I did actually learn Reform pt III from it last Thursday, and that gave me the idea of setting myself the challenge, so it's only nine of its tracks in a week, not all ten, but...

    So, now that I have a Strat with three singlecoils again, well, one I've been playing a lot of blues anyway, but two, I've been listening to a lot more Stevie Ray Vaughan. And, For the longest time I always associated his tone with the neck singlecoil of a Strat, but the more I listen and the...

    Most excellent! Same guy who did that metal horror movie mashup in Sub-Zero getup, pretty sick stuff. Does a lot of Final Fantasy 7 covers as well it seems.
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    scouring youtube tonight I came across this chap and a few of his lessons, and I must say I was quite impressed with some of the content and his teaching methods. This might be quite basic stuff to some of the big theory guys on here, but as an introduction I thought this was excellent, and a...

    Europa Report (2013) - IMDb I watched it this evening and thought it was pretty darn enjoyable. It relies on being a bit more thoughtful than a lot of sci-fi, and less on action and fantasy technology, but it's still really cool for a Friday night movie. :yesway:

    A lot of you are way more knowledgeable than I when it comes to dialing in effects, but for those of you who aren't wizards (and haven't moved on to higher end racks), I found this guide, and it is helping me understand my HD500x a lot more. Line 6 PodHD Effects Guide
  16. General Music Discussion
    Just stumbled across this today and it actually doesn't sound bad. Ripping lead player Travis something. Nice to hear a new band with a singer that actually sings for a change. A live clip too kind of Djenty but kind of not. I know a lot of people say "oh just cause she's a chick she's...
