low

  1. The Car and Bike Forum
    My new job is very organizational; I spend time trying to make my organization more efficient and whatnot. So, I miss doing actual mechanical work. I've found myself watching more of this show. It really reminds me of the work I did at my big company (the Hi car) and at my startup (the Low...
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I've had this problem for a while where I really like my guitar sound, but I hate tracking with headphones on and being tethered by a cord. The problem is, with a 412 cab in the room, even with a mic with a discerning rejection pattern like an e609, the level of spill from the monitors gets...

    Or cut them less than the 808 and TS9? I like boosts, but would like to find an OD that retains the low end a bit better.
  4. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    This has been something that I've been curious about. I'm sure it's probably been discussed. Within the last few years I've really started to notice that other peoples idea of low is actually high by my tastes. Especially since I've started building at work. And by "building" I mean actually...
  5. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I just watched a couple of guides on this, so I decided to try it out myself. After filing down the nut slots on my new Solar the D string got a slight buzz, not too much but enough for me to wanna fix it. So I practiced on a Warmoth neck before I go onto the Solar:

    https://www.thomann.de/se/line6_relay_g75.htm?ref=search_rslt_g75_358284_0 The Line6 G75 has a latency rated at 1.5ms That is REALLY GOOD. Shure GLXD16 has a latency of 4 or 7.3ms. 4 could be tolerable but 7.3ms is really stretching it especially if you use digital amps and mixers. I've...
  7. Music: Recording Studio
    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...
  8. 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: -...

    Hi guys, I bought this for one of my old customs but went for a Schaller Hannes instead. I'm moving at the end of November and want to get rid of this. I don't have any pics, but it is brand new in the box and is black, comes with springs and bar. Please only ask for it if you plan on using it...
  10. General Music Discussion
    Hi guys, I just came back from the HellFest (biggest metal open air in France, about 170 000 people over the weekend). It was great as usual, and i saw some pretty amazing shows. Just wanted to share a thought about down tuned guitars (drop E, F, G ...) on stage in open air festivals : 90% of...
  11. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I suppose there are pickups that take down drop-tuning better than the Super Distortions. How low can they go without getting muddy? Definitely they struggle with B standard. D? Thanks!

    Had it for a while now but with a baby on the way and what not it really is time for me to downsize... Again. On top of that I've got gas for a few things that maybe (just maybe) I can treat myself to before baby shows up. Its cross posted on reverb and I'll link you to the ad there for...
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I'm currently getting my overdrive sounds from a mixture of the OD channel on my DSL100 and a EQD palisades. Amp alone - light crunch (cleans nicely with volume knob too) Amp + Palisades - Shoutier OD (same as using a tube screamer to give more head room and clearer gain) I then use the bost...
  14. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Acutally I had this for a while, but the pickups took ages to arrive but finally got it. Ibanez S540. And my first Sabre in the fleet of Ibbys. When it came to pickups, I went for a low output affair. So I put a reversed Dimarzio Air Classic Bridge on the neck, Red Velvet in the middle and...

    My Charvel needs tightening up in the low end somewhat since I use it in quite a low tuning. I love the JB but going into a Mesa (even with a TS out front) it's just that bit too loose and grainy. Would love to try a distortion in this thing.

    Want to actually get laid from playing guitar? Need a bridge pickup that will get you sex? Good luck with that, keep practicing, it doesn't exist. But what does exist is this sweet Dimarzio titan that will give you sick tones for days. It's gently used, always wiped down after use. This...

    A tidy looking car if I do say so. All of the toys from the current 3-series, and a big enough boot to throw my entire rig in. I'd imagine the inevitable 2L diesel engine for the EU market will be extremely low in road tax over here too, the current 3-series is only £35 a year for the 320D...
  18. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Got this in trade from Beard maybe two years ago. Great bass - very easy to play, sounds absolutely thunderous in the low end, and looks awesome. It's in pretty good shape too - some fretwear, but not much in the way of cosmetic blemishes that I can recall. I've been going back and forth on...

    I'm building some solar learning kits for kids, for some outreach events my company has gotten involved in, and what I've got so far is pretty simple, and pretty effective; two 6 V solar panels and one 4x AA holder for power sources, and the devices to drive are a group of 5 LED's, a 12 V fan...
  20. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Anyone know if this exists? A pickup with tons of mids and treble like a Super Distortion but with a bit of a rolled-off low end? I like how the Super Distortion cuts, but the low end can be flabby. To me, this sounds like it would be a JB. Would that be close?
