  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Okay, so what I'm wanting to do is keep the blue color (maybe paint it on down the line), add a white pickguard that will obscure the neck pickup cavity (not going to be using it and taking the neck pickup out), replace the nut, and the bridge pickup. I'm relatively new to modding, but since I...

    I've seen this video This guy has changed the Gain pot on Channel 3 to a 1 Meg pot (stock is 250k). Sounds like a pretty good and easy mod to do, but has any one here done it? I'm considering it for my Triple Rectifier.

    HS or HSS? Your thoughts :) I'm on the verge of Modding one of my EVH Striped guitars, it will be the B&W since originally has a Pickguard so if I can hide it later if I don't like or get fed up with the look. I was planning initially to make it a HH but with time I'm kinda diverting to go for...

    Reverse Headstock :metal::metal::metal: I could do without the Pickup rings and also the Logo should had been in Black. https://www.jacksonguitars.com/gear/shape/san-dimas/pro-series-signature-gus-g-san-dimas/2918752509?fbclid=IwAR2H9jBuuEhlRhN9Zl2fk1Jh89gbrH 6_lFYK6AK6bkjpWeXUt4SIC7BfTxI
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys! I love my 5150 III 50W EL34 but I'm aware that there's some controversy regarding the blue channel. I personally dig the blue channel as it reminds me of an amp like a Soldano or a little bit of Recto. Fuzzy and loose and not as tight as the 6L6 blue channel. I haven't played a 6L6...

    I ordered a EVH 5150iii this weekend. Was watching demo vids on YT and saw a couple that had the LEDs inside the amp. I believe it was a Kruse video that had green lights for ch.1, blue for ch.2, and red for ch.3. If you have done a similar mod like this how did you do it? Where did you purchase...

    Just in! One of the new colors, deep metallic purple! Metal Brendan digs it! :metal:
  8. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So I recently learned about the Fortin 33, which seems to be an unobtainable/ridiculously overpriced TC Spark :lol: One thing I dig about it though, is the ability to run a control out and switch amp channels with it. I'm wondering if it is easy to just mod an overdrive pedal to do this. For...

    Picked this up after christmas and never bothered posting about it so here it is. Im not a guy who spends a lot of time on effects but I do like a lush delay for leads and fucking about with floyde esque clean tones. In short this pedal is perfect for me. Loads of effects available that all...
  10. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    This hideous creation started its life as an original Crybaby with a few issues. It already has a few battle scars from re-assembly, but it's to be expected using shellac. (Don't finish pedals in shellac! :lol: ) Pretty happy with how it came out, not perfect but I like it and I've learned at...
  11. Music: Recording Studio
    Learned about from JBroll, who does not grace this forum that often anymore, but still thankfully chimes in on social media every once in a while. https://thehuxcapacitor.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/sm57-modification/ I didn't actually read how the mod works, but I assume you just throw the whole...

    The guy I sold my Splawn to mentioned that he saw a Recto that had its "Solo" function modified to be an FX Loop on/off. Anyone heard or witnessed anything like that before? That'd be a pretty sweet trick to do to my SR50 and Stiletto.
  13. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Does anyone buy anything here, anymore? :lol: Anyways, don't tell the jerks on Reverb, but I'll let these go to ya'll for $575 for the DC-10, and $850 for the Splawn. That's dead-nuts what I paid for them (IIRC), and I totally listed them for more on Reverb :) Shipping from 39475. My NAD...

    Looking to swap the bias resistor in my 6505+ so I can bias the amp a little warmer. I'm looking for the correct value to change the resistor to. Eurotubes says 6.8k, others on the net say 5-7k. Has anybody that's done this mod care to chime in?

    Just got some awesome news, our track 'I Misery' is going to be featured on the Fallout 4 'Rogue Radio' mod :metal:
  17. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Yes that is a gigantic picture of two of the pedals, because who doesn't like black pedals? The reason I didn't include the HM-2 is because I decided not to own it. "But what about Emtombed tones" you may ask? Well too bad, I reply. I have tested the pedals with multiple amps: Mesa Triple Rec...

    Okay, so I'm not totally set on the name "Snow" yet, but here's the gist of the refinish project: (I currently have everything I need except the damn chrome headstock logo) Guitar: 2006 RG1527RB Paint: House of Kolor Snowwhite Pearl Shimrin (or similar) Hardware: All-chrome (including chrome...

    A buddy of mine just got a Dual Recto ('02~'04 he thinks), and asked me to do this mod. Looks easy enough for a guy who's done tons of pickup jobs? I found a diagram... Can anyone attest to its accuracy? https://warpedmusician.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/fx-loop-alternative1.png?w=614&h=590
  20. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Can I use a regular on/on miniswitch for turning 18v mod on and off? I wanna have this for my HSS guitar for some versitility. And how would I wire the battery to it?:ugh:
